Andre Johnson is the latest to stick up for Cowboys star Dez Bryant

Yesterday Ryan Clark went out of the way to make sure the media stopped picking on Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant. Well today the Houston Texans star wide receiver Andre Johnson, also stuck up for Bryant.

“I had a chance to personally meet Dez and stuff this past offseason, hang out with him a little bit,” Johnson told me. “From what I’ve heard in the past to now, you can tell the kid has grown up a lot. I think he just wants to win.”

“You can kind of read his lips, some of the things he was saying,” Johnson said. “I don’t think it was anything real harsh. I think he was just telling Romo, we’re a No. 1 tandem. That’s just letting you know how he feels, his passion for the game.

“It probably could have had something to do with Calvin Johnson having 300-some yards. You’re a competitor. You want to compete. I just think they’ve been kind of killing him for no reason with all this stuff, everybody saying he shouldn’t do this, or he’s that. It’s just part of the game. It’s just part of it.”

If you remember the week before the Megatron match up Dez did say “He can do anything CJ can”.  Well if you are a competitor you better show up.  He was there trying to show up but his quarterback failed to get him the ball. This week will be different. I think Dez show’s out.
