Ex-NFL receiver Terrell Owens stopped by Cowboys camp Thursday when he was asked for his thoughts on Dallas wideout Dez Bryant

“From the standpoint of, obviously a guy that’s just very passionate about the game, a lot of what he does can be misconstrued, misinterpreted,” Owens said when asked if Bryant reminded him of himself, according to the team's official website. “I think his head, mentally, is in the right place.”

Bryant's on-field and off-field behavior has been a subject of discussion in recent years. During his team's loss to the Lions last October, Bryant had heated confrontations with several coaches and teammates.

Due to a history of incidents off the field -- including an altercation at a Miami night club and a misdemeanor domestic violence charge, both in 2012 -- the Cowboys instituted a strict set of conduct rules for Bryant this season. The rules include a midnight curfew and mandatory twice-weekly counseling sessions.
