Dez Bryant's adviser says 'we’re just trying to get things cleaned up'

Dez Bryant has got to continue to put God first in the estimation of David Wells, his longtime adviser.

Bryant is embroiled in controversy since news broke Monday that he had been arrested in DeSoto, Texas, charged with misdemeanor assault for a fight with his mother on Saturday. Bryant is accused of ripping his mother Angela Bryant’s T-shirt and bra in the altercation.

He’s very remorseful,” Wells said of Bryant, according to Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News. “He loves his mom to death. And that’s about it. No one wants to be in a situation like this. No one wants to go to jail.”

What can Bryant do to improve his life?

“Every day of your life you’ve got to put God first and continue to be yourself,” Wells said. “He has to strive every day to be a better man. He came into the league and he made it a goal to play football. He is remorseful about this happening. He is.

“Right now, we’re just trying to get things cleaned up and continue to put God first and hopefully this thing can get resolved and he can get back to business.”

Wells also said Bryant is communicating with his mother throughout this process. She told police she was turning him in because she couldn’t handle it anymore.

“She loves him,” Wells said. “He loves her.”
