Monday Beastlines: Jackson's a no-show

Let's take a quick look around the division this morning to see if anything's happening:


  • In case you missed it, Dez Bryant joined "Coop and Nate" on Dallas-Fort Worth's ESPN 103.3 FM on Friday. Asked about everything that was written and said about him leading up to the draft, Bryant said, "I always told myself that I’m just going to stay positive. I feel like I’ve been doing that and the things that have been said about me, I know it’s not true. Like I always say, the people who know Dez Bryant know that he’s a good person. And when they say stuff about me, I just look at it and read it as if they were talking about someone else. I got out and enjoy myself. I was drafted to the Dallas Cowboys and like I said, I’m going to do my best. This is my dream team and this is what I want to do. That’s what I’ve been wanting to do: play for the Dallas Cowboys. Through that whole process, I just stayed positive. No hard feelings at all."
