The Dallas Cowboys turned heads when they released wide receiver Dez Bryant on Friday, and Michael Irvin pointed to the pass-catcher’s tendency to fight when explaining the team’s decision-making process.
Irving discussed Bryant on NFL Up To The Minute on Monday, per Nick Shook of NFL.com:
“Honestly, Dez is a fighter and what happens is when he gets in these situations he does what he knows how to do. He fights. And if you’re not careful with how you speak to him and how you speak with him, he ends up fighting everybody and anybody and even fighting some of the people that are trying to help him. And I think that was the situation in Dallas.
“It got a little bad off the football field, then fighting to get back where he balls, where he wants to be and where he belongs and I think he was fighting even the people that were trying to help him.”
When asked if the Cowboys were tired of Bryant and his approach to these situations, Irvin said, “To some degree, I guess that’s how you can put it. They just said at this point we’ll just move on because the fighting is not directed in the right places.”
