Cowboys Dez Bryant is paying for his security detail

Quote:
As it turns out, Dez Bryant will be picking up the tab for his babysitters.

The Rules of 88 require Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant to, among other things, have round-the-clock security, via a three-man rotating crew. As we pointed out earlier today, the arrangement could violate the labor deal in two ways. As it relates to the league, the arrangement could run afoul of the salary cap.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello tells PFT that, if the Cowboys are paying for the security detail, it would indeed be a problem.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the Cowboys aren’t paying. Instead, Dez will be footing the bill.

While the approach insulates the Cowboys from scrutiny under the cap rules (they’ve already been down that road this year), it highlights the possibility that the arrangement infringes on the player’s rights under the labor deal. Not only are the Cowboys imposing rules that go beyond the limits of the CBA, but they also are forcing Bryant to foot the bill for it.

Yes, Bryant could have said no. But the point is that he arguably never should have been forced to answer the question at all.

It remains to be seen whether the NFLPA pursues the issue on behalf of Bryant. Owner Jerry Jones ultimately may not care. The goal is to get Dez in line. If the NFLPA fights the Cowboys on this point, the union will come off trying to excuse or enable a guy whose behavior arguably justifies special measures to keep him in line.
