Dez Bryant is footing the bill for a round-the-clock security detail the Dallas Cowboys ordered the wide receiver to hire, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network who cites a team source.
If the Cowboys paid the bill, it could be a salary cap violation, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told NFL.com and NFL Network.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said at a news conference Monday that the team wants to help Bryant while also holding him accountable.
"We want to support our players, we want to support Dez and we want to support his family, and the same time hold him accountable to what he needs to do," Garrett said.
"We've talked about his development since he's come here, as a person and as a player. ... We need to help him, we need to support him, but again, we need to hold him accountable. I think this is just an example of that."
