Bradley elected to go with coffee, and nothing else, for his morning chat with a coming and going of reporters from all over the nation. He has been at the annual meetings each year since he was hired, but you wouldn’t have known it by looking at him.
Despite countless interviews in the more than two years since his hire, Bradley looked like he won a fan contest to live out his dream of being an NFL head coach.

Dallas has a history of poor contract decisions when it comes to receivers, a holdover from Jerry Jones’ over-involved general manager days. But it’s not Dez Bryant’s fault the Cowboys got burned on deals for Terrell Owens and Roy Williams.
