Out Of Pocket: NFL GM Who Asked Top 2010 Draft Prospect If His “Mom Was A Prostitute” Revealed, Offers Apology

Dez Bryant Dallas Cowboys

Dez Bryant, that fine chocolate specimen photographed above/2010 NFL first round draft pick (Dallas Cowboys), explained the tough process he underwent while being recruited by teams in preparations for this year’s NFL draft. One memory stood out the most where one team’s high-level exec had the nerve to ask him if his mother was still a prostitute and on drugs.

Peep the entire story and more lovely flicks on Dez when you…

The media criticism has been frustrating, but some of the probing from prospective employers has been downright offensive to Bryant. During one visit, the receiver sat in the office of a franchise’s high-level executive and was asked a shocking question.

“They asked me if my mom’s a prostitute,” Bryant says, an account that was confirmed by Wells, who attended the meeting. “No, my mom is not a prostitute. I got mad – really mad – but I didn’t show it. I got a lot of questions like that: Does she still do drugs? I sat and answered all of them.”

Bryant’s mother, Angela, had him when she was 15 and conceived his younger sister and brother within the next three years. She reportedly sold drugs, and she served a prison term during Dez’s childhood; at various times he lived with relatives and family friends. Dez and Angela are very close, and she will be with him at Wells’ house for a festive draft party Thursday evening.

Jeff Ireland Miami Dolphins GM

Here’s the shady bastard who asked Dez if his mother was a prostitute during the scouting process. Miami Dolphins GM, Jeff Ireland, has now officially apologized for the incident:

Ireland took the unusual step of calling Bryant himself to apologize. Ireland later issued a statement to explain his regret over the matter.

“My job is to find out as much information as possible about a player that I’m considering drafting,” Ireland said in a statement. “Sometimes that leads to asking in-depth questions. Having said that, I talked to Dez Bryant and told him I used poor judgment in one of the questions I asked him. I certainly meant no disrespect and apologized to him.”

Ireland went on to say he appreciated Bryant’s “acceptance of that apology” and said he told Bryant he “wished him well as he embarks on his NFL career.”

SMH.

    He’s a better man than me cause Idda been leapt over that conference table.

    Keeping it real would have went waaaay wrong.

  • Miss U Much MJJ....Lovely1

    I saw this on PTI last night. All I can say is Dez is strong for not beating Ireland DOWN! However, that would have marked him as a “problem”.
    The only thing I can say is that there will be more trash talking from other players on the field.
    Keep your head up Dez!!

    The GM was a complete tool for asking such an out of line question. at a job interview. I probably would have gotten really “uncouth” (to put it mildly) in there.

    What does reparations have to do with this situation?

    That’s why they say – All people remember is the bad. You can clean yourself up, move on to better things and prosper and people will STILL only dwell on the bad you have done. People, DO and CAN change – IF THEY WANT to. I’m proud of the way he handled it – because I’m not if that man would have been around to apologize – had he said that to another person.

  • MISS ALL THAT

  • drenk

    was a prostitue before? cuz they said she sold drugs and did a stint in the clink but didnt mention hooking, why ask it then?

  • Micaroni715

    Bill Parcells is part of the old boy network of treat everyone like dogs.
    Jeff Ireland was hired by Bill Parcells.
    Parcells is one of the most egotistical and arrogant members of NFL management ever.
    Parcells once referred to Terry Glenn as she.
    Ireland should be fired, plain and simple.
    Matter of fact, Ireland is plain and simple.

  • kfuller

    I say his a$$ should be fired or suspended for a long time without pay…only way to really get to these crackers is f*ck up their pockets!!! Then ask him was he s*cking d*ck when he couldn’t afford to pay the bills

  • Say What???

    I need to stop reading the comments because the ignorance on this board is appaling!

    Executive Prejudice. Nothing new.

  • num1dominicano

    it is offensive to ask someone that…but hey…they are investing millions of dollars in these players and they need to know if any outside family influences may affect the player’s conduct on or off the field….

  • Human Racist

    @ num1dominicano

    i agree…

    @Num
    Right-the NFL is not trying to have their image marred just like the NBA-now while the questioning was rude I find it difficult to believe Dez didn’t know he would posed those questions and have his background thoroughly checked doesn’t make it right or wrong but as an NFL pro baller you know that you are only good when you are winning…

  • Mizz Frost

    *drools* wow, that is one beautiful piece of mother nature!!

  • smittyboy

    A new low in white folks, to ask a man some sh$t like that, it,s funny today you see all over the news white folks saying any stupid racist degrading sh$t about or to black people and then when a little heat come down on them they want say i,m sorry as if that is suppose to cure everything they said and, what really gets me is how fast people are willing to accept their i,m sorry excuses.
