With more than 20 people turning up for the meal at a steakhouse, the receiver realized that the bill could just be jaw dropping. David Wells, Dez Bryant’s adviser, said that the people had a ‘goooood’ meal. He joked that those who did not have lobster before had it that night.
On offer at the dinner were steaks, fish and plenty of beverages. David Wells explained that Dez Bryant knew what he had to do and there was no negativity about it. Though he himself was not present at the time the bill was paid, he said that the purpose was of the meal was served. Dez Bryant had the opportunity to interact and bond with his NFL teammates through the dinner. David Wells confirmed that the newbie had a good time with the guys.
