Dez had a troubled upbringing, being born to a mother who was only 15 years old and was later convicted for dealing cocaine. While he attended Lufkin High School, he stayed at various households and used football as a positive outlet. He proved to be quite talented and led his team to an appearance in the 5A Division II state semifinals, where they would lose against Southlake Caroll. For his performance, he then participated in the Offense-Defense American Bowl. Dez also participated in track & field, setting records at hurdling and triple jump and competing at the top level.
Before college, Bryant was regarded as one of the top picks for the wide receiver spot and was rated four stars by rivals.com. Many schools went to recruit Dez, and he had visits from colleges like Texas A&M and Texas Tech. He soon settled with the Oklahoma State, playing for the Cowboys from 2007 to 2009. He recorded a great freshman start, finishing second in his team with 43 receptions and six touchdowns in 12 games, helping Oklahoma State to victory in the 2007 Insight Bowl against the Indiana Hoosiers. He continued to perform the following year, but by mid-season of 2009 he was given a suspension due to a violation of an NCAA bylaw. Prior to suspension, he was a candidate for best receiver and a Heisman contender.
In late-2009, Dez stated his intention to enter the 2010 NFL draft. He was considered by many as the best wide receiver available and was supposedly targeted by the Denver Broncos and the Dallas Cowboys. It was Dallas that acquired Bryant as the 24th overall pick, and Bryant was offered a five year $12.05 million contract with around $8 million guaranteed. This offer is the reason for the significant rise of his net worth. He performed well in his first year, despite fracturing an ankle later in the season. Bryant continued with his strong performance and was named a starter in 2011. By 2012, he had started the season strong but was eventually criticized because of some mistakes he made against the Giants. By the second half of the 2012 season he had suffered numerous injuries, but played through a finger injury and received a back injury in the final game of the season. 2013 would be his breakout year, scoring stats that ranked him 13th in yards and 3rd in touchdowns among all receivers. It was the first time that Bryant went to the Pro Bowl. He became even more productive during his final year, and his performance earned him another five year contract, this time it was worth $70 million with $45 million guaranteed. In 2015, he played a limited number of games due to foot and ankle injuries.
For his personal life, not much is revealed or stated. Dez has two children though he is not married. He’s also had a bit of trouble in court for legal and jewelry fees that were given as credit during his student years. He’s also had a domestic violence issue against his biological mother, but then later stated that he was done with domestic abuse.
