SAN ANTONIO – It’s getting monotonous to give Dez Bryant props in this space, but the dude keeps making spectacular plays.
And it’s often against Pro Bowl competition.
Bryant got a step on Mike Jenkins while running a stutter-go during 1-on-1 drills, which is an impressive feat in itself. Then Bryant came back to snare an underthrown pass from Matt Nichols, making a leaping catch and falling into the end zone for a 45-yard touchdown.
It was the second time Bryant got a step on Jenkins deep during the session. Jenkins managed to recover to deflect a slightly underthrown pass the previous time.
Bryant is likely to see a lot of man coverage this season, with opponents having to scheme to stop Miles Austin and Jason Witten. He’s proven that he can create major problems in those situations.
“They can’t cover Miles one-on-one,” Bryant said Sunday. “I’m pretty sure they’re going to double him, and that’s going to leave the rest of us open to make a play.
“When I see it, I’m going to get excited.”
He won’t be the only one.
