The Dallas Cowboys are flush with former Oklahoma State players, and one them had high praise for a former Stillwater teammate, according to the to the Dallas Morning News.



“I could tell the first day when I came in the locker room, compared to six or seven years ago, he had grown a whole lot,” Brandon Weeden said about former OSU teammate Dez Bryant. “He is making good decisions off the field, doing the right things. He’s always been a great guy, never been a problem child. But he’s growing up. He’s maturing. I wouldn’t expect anything less. He knows he has to.”

Weeden has only been with the Cowboys a few months after being released by the Cleveland Browns in March, but he hasn't wasted time speaking highly of Bryant in Dallas' organized team activities. Weeden says Bryant is the same freak on the field he was in college.

And in a funny quote, Bryant recalls his first encounter with Weeden at OSU.

“I was like, ‘Man, he’s driving a BMW.’ Driving a black BMW, a black 745,” Bryant said. “Remember seeing him get out of the car in the parking lot, and I was like, ‘Damn, how did he get that?’ Somebody had told me that he had played baseball.

“I’m left-handed, too. I should’ve been working on my pitch game.”
