Cowboys’ Bryant keeps offseason focus on football



IRVING, Texas (AP) — Dez Bryant is having a much different offseason this time, keeping the focus on football.

The third-year Dallas Cowboys receiver is spending more time with the playbook, watching more film and concentrating on his conditioning. Bryant is doing everything he can to earn the confidence of his coaches and quarterback Tony Romo.

With a structured offseason, Bryant is finally getting a chance to take advantage of what he’s learned playing two seasons in the NFL.

Bryant is already feeling the difference this offseason with the Cowboys, who wrap up four weeks of organized workouts Thursday with the end of a mandatory three-day veteran minicamp. They report to training camp in California at the end of July.
