The Dallas Cowboys are at a crossroads with receiver Dez Bryant, who was arrested on domestic violence charges Monday. Bryant has been accused of assault by his mother, who told 911 "he’s trying to kill me."
Dallas has had troublemakers on the team before; multiple Cowboys have been in trouble with the law since Jerry Jones bought the franchise in 1989. One player from the 1990s Super Bowl era offered an interesting take on Bryant’s situation on Thursday. Cowboys Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith, the NFL’s all-time leading rusher, said Bryant is simply going through growing pains.
