09:54 AM ET 07.23 | Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant and his confidante, area bail-bondsman David Wells, face a Jan. 9, 2012, court date in a civil suit. Eleow Hunt, of Colleyville, filed suit in Tarrant County in September, 2010, alleging Bryant and Wells have not paid him about $600,000 for jewelry, sports tickets and loans. It was the second civil suit against Bryant in the last year. He has settled with a New York jeweler over an alleged debt or $246,000. In June, Bryant claimed Hunt's civil suit had been "taken care of."

Could be worse, he could be hanging with lawyers. Maybe he'll meet some nice dope dealers or ex-cons now that he is in the league. Although that would involve some pretty serious click jumping.

You still wondering if it is true that most NFL players have spent all their NFL career earnings within 7 years of being retired. The reason they need a big sweet, secure NFL retirement plan is because most of them would be in a food stamp line within a decade of being out of the NFL.

I know it's "against the grain" in Big D - but - as much as liked (on the field) Irvin, and am pulling for D-Unit...I really wish they would have retired 88 w/Pearson.

He'll be filing bankruptcy by age 40.

That would be about 12 years later than Vick did.

That's true. I may be giving Dez Bryant too much credit. I think it's only a matter of time before he's serving time behind bars.

If there was no football this season, he might file before Christmas.

Agreed... but I would also like to see Pearson in the HOF.

Neither is happening anytime soon.

On the subject of bad behavior, Amy Winehouse was found dead in her apartment. Hands up anyone who didn't see that coming.
