Well, signing Michael Crabtree looks really good right now! For those of you who were hoping to select Oklahoma State WR Dez Bryant in the draft this year to fill the Niners need at WR (before Crabtree signed obviously), his stock just took a big hit.
Appparently Bryant visited Deion's house and worked out with him during the offseason and then lied to the NCAA about any of it happening. Bryant will now make an appeal to the NCAA and tell them the true story in hopes that they will reinstate him. From the story:
The NCAA interviewed Bryant before the season and also on Sept. 11, the day before a game against Houston, asking if he had visited Sanders' home, if he had worked out with Sanders and also if he had had any interaction with agents.
Bryant told them no to all questions. Bryant is expected to say that he wasn't sure if it was a violation to visit with Sanders. Bryant has been told he has been suspended because he lied about the answers to the first two questions.
In a prepared statement, the school released the following comment from Bryant: "I made a mistake by not being entirely truthful when meeting with the NCAA. I sincerely regret my mistake and apologize to my teammates, coaches, OSU fans and the NCAA.
I'll just say I'm extremely happy that we finally got Crabtree on the team. Now we can look forward to seeing this at Candlestick:
