Dez Bryant Picks Up $55,000 Dinner Tab for Cowboys Teammates
Bryant, a rookie Dallas Cowboys receiver, said he'd rather take the fellow offensive players out to dinner and buy them some Nikes instead of hauling Williams' pads around during training camp -- a friendly rookie hazing activity. The problem was that Williams also invited the defensive players to the meal.
The bill from Monday night's dinner at Pappas Bros. Steakhouse came to $54,896, ESPNDallas.com reported.
"They got the young fella," Bryant's adviser David Wells, told the website. "What could he say? He had to pay it, unless he wanted to wash dishes for a month."
Watching his teammates order expensive bottles of wine and just about everything else on the menu likely didn't help Bryant's stress-fractured rib feel any better. The team disclosed that Bryant played with that injury against Houston in Week 3.
The Cowboys have a bye in Week 4, meaning Bryant has extra time to rest his injury.
