It appears Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant will grace the cover of Rolling Stone.
Bryant posted a picture on Instagram of himself holding the magazine, which featured him on the front wearing only pads, teasing a future cover story. The issue is dated Sept. 10, 2015, giving Cowboys and Bryant fans something to look forward to.
Bryant, 26 and a two-time Pro Bowler, has emerged as one of the league's best receivers as well as one of its most outspoken – and at times controversial – figures. He captioned the photo expressing his gratitude to Rolling Stone for the cover and story.
“I'm blessed and no one in this world can take that away from me,” Bryant wrote. “I wouldn't change a inch of me for the world...God wanted me this way...so I embrace it and try to be a strong example for the ones who struggle and think it's never a way...thank you @rollingstone for sharing the real Dez Bryant.”
