Dez Bryant adviser: “He’s in a dark place”

Bryant apparently began living the lifestyle of a wealthy professional athlete months before he became a first-round draft pick, loading up on gold and diamond jewelry plus tickets to watch LeBron James play, all on the promise of paying for it once he signed with an NFL team.

With lawsuits piling up, it’s not a good time to be Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant right about now.

His adviser David Wells -- not that David Wells -- joined ESPN Radio in Dallas to answer a few questions about the young receiver.

Wells says Bryant wants to settle his debts, and is currently in a “dark place.” (That caused Tim McMahon to wonder if Bryant has paid his electricity bill.)

Wells helped Bryant get expensive jewelry when Bryant was still a student at Oklahoma State. He does not believe that is a NCAA violation. (Reasonable minds may disagree. Like the NCAA.)

Deion Sanders also sat in on the session, and we’ll pass along anything else newsworthy that was said. It’s not like we have actual football news to report on.
