Dez Bryant's crazy Dallas Cowboys rules to stay

Two years ago - during the 2012 NFL off-season - Dez Bryant was charged with allegedly assaulting his own mother.

The Dallas DA agreed to drop the misdemeanour charge against the Dallas Cowboys wide receiver if he agreed to go to counselling and stay out of trouble. 

Those were accomplished and the charges were dropped against the 25-year old. The Cowboys organization however handed down some punishments of their own on the star wideout.

Bryant has several provisions put in place against him, including a midnight curfew, no drinking alcohol, banned from strip clubs, attend counselling twice a week, a three-man security team of which one is with him at all times, and driven to all team events, games, practices by security.

Despite the arrest happening over two years ago, the Cowboys owner Jerry Jones confirmed that they are not prepared to levy any of the provisions on Bryant.

"He doesn't need to drop his guard," Jones said on Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings. "In some respect, none of us do."

Controversy does seem to follow Bryant wherever he goes so maybe it is for the best. 

The wide receiver had several moments last year on the field - the only place he doesn't have that security detail - that resulted in negative publicity on a national scale.

Bryant got into a big argument with tight end Jason Witten during a loss to the Detroit Lions last season and also left the field before the game was over in a loss to the Green Bay Packers.
