Perhaps this was another "business decision" for Sanders. Isn't Sanders a reverend or minister or something like that? I'm surprised he would simply give up on Bryant. I know he said he would pray and all, but still...seems like he gave up pretty quickly. Is Bryant really a huge problem?

Sanders, who's also an NFL Network analyst, said Bryant's problems have been exacerbated by his big contract and the crowd that surrounds him. Bryant, 22, had a well-publicized run-in with a Dallas-area mall's security staff this summer, and he also has been sued over unpaid jewelry bills.

"It's hard to talk to a person when they have millions, man, because there is so much noise in their life," Sanders said. "Everybody around them is employed, and they have 'yes men.' You gotta start hiring a 'no man.' Somebody who is going to tell you no and somebody who is going to tell you the truth, and a lot of these guys don't, and when it comes to him with a lot of things, I had to cut my umbilical cord with him because a lot of things people do not know about."

He would have lots of young players that he'd work with. If Bryant didn't really listen to it and ignored his advice its reasonable he could give up and focus on those that do. I really doubt the first time Sanders had problems with Bryant he stopped, he probably tried a few times and realized Bryant only wanted to hang around with yes men.

Eh.

Deion is implying Dez is a dirtbag.

Dez is implying he's just an innocent victim of scorn.


The truth is probably somewhere in the middle. I wouldn't brush off all the negativity around Dez like it was nothing, but until he does something that actually hurts his ability to get on the field or effect the lockerroom in a negative way, I wouldn't be overly concerned about it either.

But where theres smoke theres fire. So I would be a little worried about it. But just a little bit.

Plus it sounds like there's alot we don't know and at least Sanders isn't making Dez's business public.

Deion's always had a bad attitude and a weak work ethic that resulted in him only playing half of his position (imagine how good he'd have been if he were willing to defend AFTER a wideout made a catch). Bryant doesn't need someone like him around, anyway. After all, we're talking about the same guy who was working Dez on behalf of his agent, resulting in a suspension and hurting his draft stock.

Demarcus Ware ought to step in and make this kid part of his circle. Wouldn't hurt to have some of his character rub off on him. Or...if he needs a legendary ex-player named Sanders, maybe he should give Barry a call. He was a class act with a great work ethic.

disclaimer: Not saying that I think Dez is a saint who was led astray or anything...but Deion definitely exacerbated tendencies that were already there.
