Roy Williams Finally Gets The Hazing He Has Been Wanting
29 Sep 2010
Remember the big flap when Cowboys rookie receiver Dez Bryant refused to carry former Lion Roy Williams’ pads during training camp? And remember when Williams said it was no big deal … but Bryant probably would have to buy dinner to make up for it?
That time came Monday night. And the tab was $54,896, according to espndallas.com.
Bryant was set to take Dallas’ offensive players to Pappas Bros. Steakhouse, and Williams made sure to invite the defensive players, too.
“They got the young fella,” Bryant’s adviser, David Wells, told the site. “What could he say? He had to pay it unless he wanted to wash dishes for a month.”
Players reportedly ordered basically everything on the menu — and even took home bottles of wine.
Before you feel too bad for Bryant, know that he received $8.3 million in guaranteed money from his rookie contract.
