Dez Bryant's adviser, David Wells, said Wednesday that the Cowboys receiver is "in a dark place."
"I talked to him yesterday, and he wants to get past this," Wells told Deion Sanders on ESPN 103.3's Ben & Skin Show. "He wants to get all these deals past him and closure. He's in a dark place in his life. Until you find the light, you're going to continue to be in a dark place."
Bryant faces three lawsuits. He is being sued for more than $850,0000 for unpaid loans and jewelry and tickets to sporting events purchased on credit.
Bryant, a first-round draft pick last April, made $2.8 million in base salary and bonuses. He is due a base salary of $1.1 million this season as well as a $1 million roster bonus he will receive after a new collective bargaining agreement is reached.
"He's got a plan that he talked to me about yesterday, that he wants to move forward with," Wells said on the radio. "The greatest thing in the end is if Dez comes out and does what he has to do in the community, as a father, with the Cowboys organization, then I think he’ll be OK."
