Bryant tells Jordan Brand "let me show you I'm worthy" by working for free the 1st yr of deal

Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant is so confident in his abilities to not only adhere to Jordan's advice of staying out of trouble but also continuing to develop as one of the league top game breakers that he will not get paid the first year of his three-year endorsement deal with Jordan Brand at his request.

According to a source, it was Bryant’s idea to work for free the first year of the deal outside of athletic gear/apparel and prove himself worthy of the Jordan Brand.

“He told Jordan, let me show you,” the source said.

Of course, if you know Bryant the Jordan gear is like money to him.

Bryant is the seventh NFL player to join the apparel group and will be part of a new marketing campaign coming this summer, a source said.
