Warren Moon gets in a dig at Dez Bryant
Another day, another opinion someone has regarding Dez Bryant.
This time, Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon weighs in on the often controversial Bryant, who actually did a pretty good job of keeping the focus on football during the season.
Moon was speaking on KIRO-AM 710 in Seattle when he began discussing Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon, who will forego his senior season to enter the NFL draft two years after Bryant left the same program for the NFL.
“(Blackmon) is a beast, isn’t he? He’s like Dez Bryant with all of his brain cells," Moon said, according to the Dallas Morning News. "He’s a guy that has all those skills that Dez Bryant has but he’s not the knucklehead that Dez Bryant has turned out to be with Dallas. And a much better route runner than Dez Bryant is, but a very tremendous talent."
Bryant has been pursued by people to re-pay loans for much of the last year but on the field he caught 63 passes for 928 yards and nine touchdowns and he wasn’t healthy the entire time. Provided he remains healthy next season, he should make the next step for the Cowboys.
