Remember at the end of July when Cowboys rookie wide receiver Dez Bryant acted like an arrogant little b*tch and refused to carry Roy Williams' shoulder pads at practice? His ballsy lack of humility pissed a lot of Bros off, to put it bluntly. Shortly after Bryant apologized to the NFL veteran, Williams mentioned he'd ask Bryant to eventually pick up a dinner tab. Two months and $54,896 later, Bryant finally learned revenge is a dish best served medium rare with a fine cabernet sauvignon.
Last night Williams decided to get payback where it hurts the most, especially to an NFL player: his wallet. According to ESPN, Bryant kindly decided to take out the Cowboys offense to Dallas' swanky Pappas Bros Steakhouse. In a move that was one-half class, one-half locker-room spite, Williams invited the defense along for the free meal.
Monday night at Pappas Bros. Steakhouse, Bryant took the offensive players out, then Williams invited the defensive players and when the night was over the bill came: $54,896.
"They got the young fella," said Bryant's adviser David Wells. "What could he say? He had to pay it unless he wanted to wash dishes for a month."
Players ordered basically everything on the menu and even took home bottles of wine.
Yahoo's Shutdown Corner estimates there were probably at least 50 people present at Bryant's rookie initiation meal, including coaches and assistants. As much as we loath the Cowboys, it's a pretty funny mental image to imagine the team loading up on wine on their rookie teammates dime. But Dez had it coming and we feel 100% zero pity. Payback, after all, is a b*tch.
