    Knowing that nothing is guaranteed, owner and general manager Jerry Jones says he believes the off-field troubles, ranging from an arrest following an argument with his mother to a number of suits related to unpaid loans, are part of Bryant’s past.

    “Dez is in a better place relative to anything that the Cowboys are interested in, which is most everything about him,” Jones said. “He’s in a better place and that’s a positive. ... He’s not around the kind of atmosphere or doesn’t have the kind of risks that are involved in his life on or off the field that he had seven, eight months ago.”

    Coach Jason Garrett cited Bryant's maturity as a major factor in the increased production.

    "There’s a correlation in the growth and development as a person and the growth and development of the player," Garrett said. "I think what he’s done more than anything else is just simply mature and it has a lot to do with the approach that he’s taken. I think the first couple of years in the league, he was a very productive player for a rookie receiver and a second-year receiver, he made big impacts on games, but he wasn’t as consistent as he needed to be. I think his practice habits, his commitment to getting better on the details of the game just continued to improve. I think he saw the results on how that led to him having success on Sunday afternoons.”

    Dez is going to be a superstar and leader on this team for a decade.

    He might be immature, but he's not dumb and I think he's humble. He'll recognize that JG and JJ never gave up on him, and he won't give up on them. We are going to see this kid seriously fly for a long, long time.

    I think this is why Jimmy Robinson is still a consultant for the Dallas Cowboys and not retired.

    Sounds like his mom is now out of the picture.

    Yet I was told by many people on here that Dez will never grow up, and that he should be cut, and traded and other nonsense....

    I'm happy for this kid... He grew up in an environment of the likes no one should had to deal with.

    Ditto. I pretty much knew he wasn't dead, but I immediately thought, "This headline makes it seem like Dez passed away." :(
