David Wells explains 'dark place' comments

The adviser for Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant said the man is in a dark place.

David Wells, who spent about 10 minutes on the Ben and Skin show today on 103.3 FM, said Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is in a dark place right now.

Bryant has three lawsuits pending against him, the two biggest says he owes over $850,000, mainly on jewlery, sporting event tickets and personal loans.

Wells said the goal is for Bryant to repay the loans.

But the entire situation has wore him down.

"I talked to him yesterday and he wants to get past this," Wells said on the Ben and Skin Show. "He wants to get all these deals past him and closure. He’s in a dark place in his life. Until you find that light, you’re going to continue to be in a dark place."

After his interview, Wells was asked to speak further on the dark place comment to ESPNDallas: "When people are coming at you, and Dez doesn't like his name thrown out there, it bothers him. He just wants to be left alone."

Wells said Bryant is working out in Louisiana and is expected back to the Dallas area soon.

"He’s got a plan that he talked to me about yesterday, that he wants to move forward with," Wells said on the radio. "The greatest thing in the end is if Dez comes out and does what he has to do in the community, as a father, with the Cowboys organization, then I think he’ll be OK."
