08:29 AM ET 09.29 | Would you rather Dez Bryant picked up your pads or the check? Michael Smith, floor manager at Pappas Bros. Steakhouse, refused to comment on the gathering. But numerous Cowboys players described the experience. Wrote receiver Miles Austin: "Food is crazy here!!!" Wrote receiver Jesse Holley: "Woke up this morning and scramble me some cheese eggs to go w/ my left over 20oz Kobe steak from last night. Mmmmmmm!" ... Bryant helped foot the bill for the dinner. "They got the young fella," Bryant's adviser, David Wells, told ESPNDallas, which reported the bill to be $54,896. "What could he say? He had to pay it unless he wanted to wash dishes for a month."

How about being Jesse Holley? Dude goes from Mike Irvin's reality show to Dez buying him dinner.

Good thing for Dez the 'Boys didn't trade for Haynesworth. That tab coulda tripled.

I think that I would rather carry helmets and pads than drop 55 grand on dinner.
