Dallas Cowboys impressed with WR Dez Bryant's improvement

The Dallas Cowboys have been impressed with the offseason of receiver Dez Bryant, the Dallas Morning News reports.

'We're gonna be damn good'

You can't blame Cowboys DC Rob Ryan for being optimistic, Ian Rapoport reports. Ryan really likes this year's defense. More ...

"He's doing great," Cowboys wide receivers coach Jimmy Robinson told the media after rookie minicamp practice Saturday.

"Having a good offseason," he added. "Working really hard and getting better out here every day. Again, that's got to carry over to the next phase, to the OTAs (organized team activities) and training camp and then regular season, game day."

Robinson said there aren't any particular aspects of Bryant's game that the two are working on. He simply summarized it as "everything."

The Cowboys' top draft pick in 2010 improved from his rookie season, catching 63 passes for 928 yards and nine touchdowns in 2011. However, he wasn't much of a factor in the fourth quarter of several games and he failed to record a 100-yard game.

With Laurent Robinson departing to the Jacksonville Jaguars via free agency, Bryant will need to boost his production, especially in the red zone.

"I think he's working hard in here," Robinson said. "The teaching sessions got off to a good start. He's out here working really, really hard to get better. It's got to make a difference. If it doesn't, then what's the point of the offseason program?"
