10:45 AM ET 07.29 | One of the questions marks attached to camp is whether troubled receiver Dez Bryant will be focused. Teammate Miles Austin said he's confident Bryant will be able to block out his legal problems during camp. "I feel like Dez is a true professional," Austin said, "and with any true professional when you come to work you have to -- regardless of how good or bad outside circumstances are -- you got to put those things to the side and go on and work. I feel like not only him but the whole group needs to have that focus when we are out there together working, and every time we practice or on the field we have to have that same level of focus."

From an argument in a mall over something as silly as saggy pants, to a night club confrontation with a celebrity rapper, to the latest accusations that he struck his mother, he seems easily lit up.

Okay Dole I am worried to now that we have your brother on board. I hope I don't get sick with worry. Maybe I should just get drunk to forget about it.

Focus and professionalism. That's what I think of when someone says the name Dez Bryant... That and saggy pants.

I thaught the craxk **** was living in Bryants house. Article says she told him to leaver her house. And as usual the complaint she files on Tuesday is different than what she alleged on Saturday.If it really is his house he should give it to her and walk away. Det a condo and not tell her where.

He is renting it from his attorney.


Just another reason to be worried about Dez.

+1

I hope JJ has heard the line about "hope for the best, prepare for the worst." Maybe stockpile a couple of receivers on the taxi squad for just-in-case.

That sounds like the strategy J.J. had for Pacman Jones.

This kid needed a father, badly.I hope he recovers and pulls his life together.Part of that recovery will be kicking his mom and half-brother to the curb.

If he kicks too hard the cops will be called again.
