Dez Bryant not satisfied with just being one of football's top receivers

IRVING, Texas -- Dez Bryant considers himself among the top receivers in the game and his numbers justify it. But that doesn't mean he's reached his potential.

Bryant is more than receptive to coaching and criticism because he knows it will only help him grow.

"If it's not right, tell me it's not right because I want to do my best to fix it," Bryant said. "You should never be satisfied. Nobody. Never get comfortable. That's when you start falling downhill."

Bryant has enjoyed a strong camp so far and appears to be in midseason form. He showed that much in his preseason debut Saturday, as he caught three passes for 59 yards and a touchdown.

But Bryant also ran a bad route during one of the plays, which coach Jason Garrett didn't hesitate to point out.

"He cares about getting better and better to make himself great and make our team great," Garrett said. "It's fun to coach him. He still has a long, long way to go as a player and he wants to get there."
