Sean Lee responds to Dez Bryant calling him a snake, “he needs to hold himself accountable”

New, comments

Lions and tigers and snakes, oh my!

I don’t know if you heard the news, but Dez Bryant took to twitter to express his feelings, and they weren’t pleasant. This latest rant came as a result of a not liking the fact that his name was brought up by Stephen Jones in a recent interview courtesy of Sirius XM Radio.

The part of contention has to be the “Dez in his ear” part. Bryant was clearly distraught last season when the Cowboys offense struggled at times. His aggravation was often times the topic of discussion for the broadcasters announcing the game. Bryant’s twitter tirade consisted of several tweets and in one of them he mentioned that it was planned to get him out and that you can ask Travis Frederick and Sean Lee, only he worded the last part like this:

“my brother snake Lee, I mean Sean Lee.”

After practice on Friday, the Cowboys All Pro linebacker took a moment to make a brief response about Dez’ comments.

“First, to say that I can get anyone off the team and have any input on the roster is absurd.

Second thing, I love Dez and I want the best for him. To be honest, we did butt heads because I wanted Dez to be more accountable to this team and his teammates and to be honest with you a lot of the team felt that way. I think he needs to look at himself and hold himself accountable.

Thank you.”

Here is the quick video of Lee’s response.

Bryant is no longer with the Cowboys, but that doesn’t mean he still can’t add a lot of excitement to training camp.

Distractions like this are exactly what the Cowboys don’t need as they try to rebound from last year. Jason Garrett spoke about focus in today’s press conference, that is maybe something the Cowboys from the very top to the bottom of their organization need to buy into. If the Cowboys are going to win in 2018, they need to look forward, not backwards.
