A side story to the biggest game of the year for the Cowboys and Giants is the possibility that second-year wide receiver Dez Bryant could be served with a lawsuit by a New York-based finance company while in the area this weekend.
Endurance Capital Fund alleges Bryant owes the company some $50,000 for a loan he has not repaid. It is the third debt-related lawsuit filed against Bryant since he was drafted by the Cowboys in April of 2010.
The team is aware of the situation, and continues to attempt to help Bryant, Cowboys Vice President Stephen Jones told Sirius NFL Radio on Wednesday evening.
"I think most of these incidents revolve around things he did early on, when he first got in the NFL," Jones said. "I think he's learning from that, but there are still some lingering things that probably, if he had to do over again, he'd do differently.
"We've obviously sat down with him on numerous occasions to give any advice we can . . . Hopefully he'll be able to correct those things so it doesn't affect what he can accomplish on the field. If you don't clean those things up, they tend to affect your career. He understands that."
