Thursday August 21st, 2014

Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant is entering his fifth season in the NFL, but said he is not satisfied with the success he has had thus far, Clarence Hill of the Star Telegram reports.

Last season, Bryant played in all 16 of the Cowboys' games and had 93 catches for 1,233 yards and 13 touchdowns. He also made the NFL Pro Bowl in 2013, which was his first career selection.

From the Star-Telegram:

“You should never be satisfied,” Bryant said. "Nobody. Never get comfortable. That’s when you start falling downhill. Like I said, you’ve got to always have room to grow. I have a lot. I feel like I have a lot of room to grow. I’m going to continue to keep doing that, enjoying this game, living to make plays.”

Bryant played in the first quarter of Saturday’s preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens and had three catches for 59 yards and a touchdown.

Dallas opens its season on Sept. 7 when the team hosts the San Francisco 49ers.
