Jerry Jones hasn’t talk to Dez Bryant about Miami incident because he says he didn’t think it was significant enough

Cowboys Jerry Jones said he has yet to talk to receiver Dez Bryant regarding the altercation he had a Miami night club with rapper Lil Wayne and his entourage last month. 

Coach Jason Garrett said he hasn’t talked to Bryant either.

Considering Bryant’s off the field issues of the past and the extra attention Jones has given him to make sure he stays out of trouble, it’s surprising the Cowboys wouldn’t at least speak to him about the incident.

But Jones said he’s just been too busy, he didn’t think the incident was significant enough and not something worth emphasizing.

"I have had communication, but I haven't talked to him. I've just been too busy," Jones said. "It was not a significant enough thing that would make that (necessary), to me. I can, and do and have talked to him throughout the time that he's been with the Cowboys about whether it be financial issues or whatever.

"I got the details of that and just didn't have the time, and didn't want to make the emphasis with him . . . It just was not something that I felt like I needed to run him down and talk to him about."

I happen to agree. A "scuffle" in a bar isn't that big of a deal, just because the media wishes it were. It might sell newspaper and allow the media jackals to label Dez a head-case but it isn't necessarily anything to keep the team's owner up nights.
