Dez Bryant took some time to talk about his personal life on Wednesday, mainly the relationship with his mother.
Bryant allegedly had a physical confrontation with his mother, Angela, in July. Charges from that case are being dismissed as Bryant attends counseling.
“Let me tell you something, my relationship with my mom is great,” said Bryant according to ESPN. “Even after the fact, it’s great. I don’t want to get into it much, but when it happened in our eyes, it was overblown.”
Bryant did not stop there.
“I love my mom. My mom loves me. Everything is great between us.”
While Bryant may be happy about the relationship he has with his mother, Cowboy fans are equally as concerned with his production on the field. In the last two games Bryant has caught 15 catches for 232 yards and 2 touchdowns. He averaged just 5 catches and totaled 2 touchdowns in the Cowboys first eight games.
“We focus on small things, it will eventually turn into big things,” Bryant said. “Small, positive things turn into big, positive things. As long as I keep doing the right things, all the things that happen are positive things.”
While he was speaking about his personal life those statements also seem to be paying off on the football field.
The Cowboys are 5-5 this season and host arch-rival Washington on Thanksgiving Day. The Redskins are ranked 29th against the pass so expect Bryant to get plenty of targets during the game.
