"My client was basically being nice," Blackwood said. "He deals with a lot of professional athletes, and he's not in the habit of trying to raise a fuss or have a high profile. He genuinely liked Dez Bryant and thought he would come through. ... My client's finally decided Dez doesn't care, he's not going to keep his word. My client is pretty angry."
As for the timing, Blackwood said, "We didn't approach the firestorm. The firestorm approached us."
