    Written by

    First video of Dez Bryant making a catch and it not being a catch. Now video of Dez doing "dastardly" things, but there is no video. Or there is. Or it wasn't a catch. I've gone cross-eyed.

    There's a website out there that's claiming there is a video of Dez Bryant doing horrible things going to be released soon.
