When Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant played with Brandon Weeden at Oklahoma State, they never got to play together on the field.

Now, Bryant is praising his former college teammate now that Weeden is the backup to Tony Romo in Dallas.

“He’s unbelievable at what he does,” Weeden said. “It’s the same stuff he did when he was 18 when he came in. I have said it when we came in the same year, he’s just a freak. The guy is probably the most passionate football player. He loves the game more than anyone I’ve ever been around.

“He just wants to catch the ball. You can throw him footballs for 24 hours and the guy would never get tired. He hasn’t changed in that sense. Dez is one of the best teammates I have ever had, dating back to when we were at Oklahoma State. He’s just a passionate guy that will have your back until the end.”

Added Bryant:"He’s been doing an outstanding job since he got here. In my honest opinion, I feel like he was doing some great things out in Cleveland.”
