Dez Bryant got a pet monkey and named it Dallas

Thursday October 22nd, 2015

Dez Bryant has a new friend.

The Cowboys receiver, still recovering from the foot injury he sustained in Week 1, has apparently found a new way to keep himself entertained in the meantime: this pet monkey.

According to his Instagram caption, Bryant named this monkey “Dallas.” Dallas is also apparently his best friend (sorry, Romo). It’s pretty cute, if you think monkeys are cute.

That new $70 million contract has already gone to good use.
