Just me but IMO this a fragile locker room ......
Sean Lee: Dez Bryant needs to look at himself and hold himself accountable
Posted by Charean Williams on July 27, 2018, 9:12 PM EDT
Dez Bryant called out former teammates Travis Frederick and Sean Lee on Twitter, implying they were responsible for his departure from Dallas. Both denied having anything to do with the receiver’s release after hearing the accusations from the team’s public relations staff after practice Friday.
But Lee had some harsh words for Bryant, who referred to the linebacker as “Snake Lee” on Twitter.
“First thing to say, that I can get anybody off the team and have any input on a roster is absurd,” Lee said on the practice field, answering only one question. “The second thing [is] I love Dez, and I want the best for him.
“You know, to be honest, we did butt heads, because I wanted Dez to be more accountable to this team and his teammates. To be honest with you, a lot of the team felt that way. I think he needs to look at himself and hold himself accountable.”
On April 13, the day Jerry Jones informed Bryant of his release, the receiver accused “Garrett’s guys” of working against him. Until Friday, he had not named names other than to refer to players who wear the captain’s “C.”
“I think you’d find it hard to find anyone in the NFL who has personnel input in your fifth year going in the NFL, so I certainly did not have any input into that,” Frederick said.
Frederick called it “disappointing” to have his name dragged through social media by a former teammate.
“One of the unifying things we have as players is we’re teammates and that we all played this game and we all sacrifice together,” Frederick said. “It’s disappointing when you hear guys turn against each other, but I think in the end, Dez was a great teammate of mine, and I’d still consider him a friend.”
Offensive coordinator Scott Linehan, whose play calling was called “garbage a@%” by Bryant, declined comment
Perfect statement from Lee. Love it
How isn't it a fragile locker room when they got rid of Dez? And he only had a problem after he got cut.
A fragile wr who is not on the team.
Of course Sean Lee comes back with nothing but class
Just proves everyone in the lockeroom wasn’t on the same page and you can’t win like that. None of this is a surprise after seeing the product on the field.
Maybe hard to believe but a lot of young players ( especially African Amer ) looked up to him. How much trust does Lee with teammates after Dez comment? Just to be clear, I certainly don't agree with Dez comments regarding Lee but that besides the point. The question is there any damage in the locker room from the comment......
Distractions. I'm glad Sean Lee kept it classy, but Jerry and Stephen both need to shut the hell up so this type of "crisis" control isn't even necessary. Distractions.
Dez just bought himself the veteran minimum or dang close to it.
What a doofus.
Dez fell off and got frustrated, it happens.
You know what they say that when you point a finger saying it everyone else fault, there three pointing right back at you. Well said Lee.
Damn Dez sounds like a jilted lover. I’m sure you will get your revenge somewhere else and be an all-pro. Good luck!
Dez is degenerating into a giant pool of nothingness! For Sure...
Sounds like an unified locker room to me.
My estimation of you has gone from a fave to hero status.
I am glad someone finally stepped away from the canard that Dez is "passionate" and a "competitor" and has told Despicable Dez that he is accountable for Dez.
Well done, fragile boy, well done!
I've never been more disappointed in Dez than I am right now.
I've said it before, Dez needs to look no further than a mirror to see where his problem lies
Despicable Dez is showing his upbringing, that of a hyena.
I hope a lot of Cowboys were unhappy about Dez. What a ****.
