Dez Bryant ready for return to NFL:

Former Oklahoma State wideout Dez Bryant is feeling “way better” than he did a year ago. CBS sports is reporting that Bryant is looking to take the field again in mid October.

A former All-Pro who eclipsed 1,200 receiving yards three straight seasons starting in 2012, Bryant signed with the New Orleans Saints in November 2018 but suffered a season-ending Achilles tear just two days later. That came after a nine-week stint in free agency to start the season, not to mention some public but fruitless flirtations with the Cleveland Browns and a rather unceremonious departure from Dallas earlier in the offseason.{CBS}

“He knows he’s a stud muffin,” said Royston, the executive director of Turning Point Ranch. “He needs to be Stillwater’s Li’l Sebastian.” {The Oklahoman}
