Bryant denies line of questioning

New Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant denied a Sports Ilustrated story about the line of questioning during the pre-draft interview between the Miami Dolphins and Bryant. SI reported Friday that Jeff Ireland's question about whether Bryant's mother was a prostitute came after Bryant was asked what his father did for a living.

According to SI, this is how the line of questioning went, starting first with Ireland asking Bryant what his father did for a living:

Bryant: "My dad was a pimp."

Ireland: "What did your mom do [for a living]?

Bryant: "She worked for my dad."

Ireland: "Your mom was a prostitute?"

Bryant was told about the report Friday between practices and denied that's how the question was brought up by the Dolphins general manager.

"No, sir," Bryant said. "That was a lie."

Bryant refused to comment further on the controversy, and in fact, would not comment on two other questions about it.

"No disrespect," Bryant said, "but I don't really want to talk about it."

Dez wishing you well as the new MI. But one thing can you cut the crybaby crap over what questions you got asked in interviews. Just take the $40 million and STFU.
