Cowboys WR Dez Bryant: Domestic case 'behind me'

According to reports, the Cowboys agreed to provide Bryant a security team while restricting his off-field activities. The Cowboys haven't commented specifically on those limitations.

"Like we said right from the start, we support Dez and his family," Dallas coach Jason Garrett said. "No real comment beyond that."

Bryant was projected as a top 10 draft pick but fell to the Cowboys at No. 24 in 2010 in part because of a troubled past. He missed almost all of his final season at Oklahoma State after the NCAA suspended him for lying about having dinner with Deion Sanders.

There were pre-draft rumors that Bryant skipped meetings and classes at Oklahoma State, and his pro day was marred by banter that he had forgotten the cleats he planned to wear for the workout.

He has also run into trouble off the field since the Cowboys drafted him, and his production in Dallas has been spotty. He has a pair of 100-yard games this year, but he followed one of those with a one-catch game against Atlanta. Bryant has 45 catches for 590 yards and three touchdowns, and says he thinks he's improving.

"I feel like I put in time, a little bit of extra time to be able to feel more comfortable in the offense and asking questions instead of keeping my mouth closed," Bryant said. "I feel like that helped me out a lot."
