Dez Bryant is not really the bashful type. He knows he's good, and he's not afraid to tell you how good he can be. Case in point: What he said in a recent telephone interview with ESPN Dallas.
"It's only going to get better, to be honest," Bryant said. "I still have a lot to give. I feel like nobody's seen anything. Nothing.
"I honestly feel like [2,000 yards and 20 touchdowns] can potentially happen."
Bryant caught 92 passes for 1,392 yards and 12 touchdowns last season.
Prior to last season, Calvin Johnson said he was shooting for 2,000 yards, and he almost did it. It's not like that number is easy to obtain. The number of players who have obtained it is zero, you know? But hey, Dez is going to be Dez. Even if he can replicate his final seven games from last season -- 792 yards -- over a full 16 games, he would still end up shy of 2,000. However, 1,810 yards isn't exactly bad.
Dez can cash the checks that his mouth writes. I wouldn't forecast anything more than 1,600 yards for him, just to be safe. But with Bryant's talent, who knows? The even better news is that he seems to be more on the straight and narrow now. He is a WR1 lock.
