Last night Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant admitted he left the field early during their loss to the Packers because his emotions got the best of him.
Today Bryant came out and said he didn’t want anyone to see him crying on the sideline.
“I was wrong,” Bryant said via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “It didn’t have anything to do with my teammates. I just … I couldn’t watch Green Bay kneel the ball down on the field after a tough loss like that.
“I was very emotional. I cried when I got into the locker room. I didn’t want to show that stuff on the sideline.”
“Whenever I’m out on the football field, it’s all about the team,” Bryant said. “I’m a team guy and that’s what I think about and that’s what I focus on. I extremely, extremely apologize for leaving, but my teammates and coaches understand. I am a very emotional player and we didn’t finish.”
I understand Bryant being upset, but it would have been better to sit on the sideline and probably just put on a towel over his face.
In the end, this isn’t a big deal. Let’s move on.
