Cowboys lay down strict personal behavior rules for Dez Bryant

Dez Bryant isn’t going to be making it rain.

And he’s not going to be out late, unless he’s got special permission.

The Dallas Cowboys have laid down strict personal conduct guidelines for their wide receiver. Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas reports the rules were set into place on Thursday after the club returned to Dallas following training camp in California.

The report cites sources in saying Bryant has a midnight curfew and he must let club officials know in advance if he will be out past that hour. He is prohibited from consuming alcohol and cannot frequent strip clubs. The Cowboys will employ a three-man security team to watch Bryant with one with him at all times. Bryant is required to attend counseling twice per week.

This is what the Cowboys have come up for Bryant after he was accused of domestic violence by his mother last month.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones indicates Bryant has been willing to play along by the new rules.

"Oh yeah, very much willing to do anything he can to help himself and help the team," Jones said. "He's very open-minded and cooperative. He's doing the right things by his teammates and everybody is counting on him."
