Dez Bryant: "I’ve got to know what the hell I’m doing. I felt like I dedicated myself to do that."

Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant talked after the Giants game for the first time since being charged with misdemeanor family violence for allegedly assaulting his mother in July. He didn't speak to the media during training camp.

Bryant didn't address the assualt charge, to which he has claimed innocence through his attorney Royce West. He also didn't address the "Dez Rules" _ that include a full-time security, weekly couseling and a curfew _ which he and the Cowboys agreed to keep him out of trouble.

Bryant only talked football after what was a solid opening game with four receptions for 85 yards.

Bryant was criticized by his owner and teammates for not knowing the offense and being out of shape during the first two years of his career.

He believes he is primed for a breakout season in 2012 because he is the best shape of his career and finally has a grasp of the offense which he credits to intense work and preparation during the off season.

"Of course I felt like that’s my job," Bryant said when asked if he was more committed. "If I’m going to be put out there with Tony Romo, Jason Witten, Miles Austin, I’ve got to know what the hell I’m doing. I felt like I dedicated myself to do that. Not only that, I had help from Tony. I had help from Miles, Wit and the rest of the guys. I felt like it helped me out a lot, learned a lot and just going to keep moving."
