Lmao, Check out THIS comment in the reader section of the article ya gave:
"This makes me like Dez Bryant a million times more. Respected is demanded, not earned

Sorry people, This is far and away- Less about carrying some pretty mediocre NFL Vet's Shoulder Pads...Than it is about Teaching a fresh outta college NFL Rookie, a little respect & humility by having him do a meaningless simple task, HERE's WHY
Many of these Collegiate Football Superstars, WERE no doubt, the top apex of the food chain On their team, schools, peers, And EVERYthing and EVERYwhere else they knew... Suddenly they have become INFINITELY higher in popularity an recognition: Millions of dollars, 3 Cameras to 300 Cameras, Reporters, People and Circumstances bowing 100 fold to their every whim, And Yet: They haven't accomplished 1 d#mn thing yet in The Big Leagues, although they're being hailed as the next Messiah.THIS
could, would and Should- Inflate their already Large Egos, Infinitely. Suddenly it's, I'M amazing, I'M a wonder, I AM the best... Huge Egos=No Humility. No Humility=I can do it alone, and need NOone. I can do it alone=NO TEAM.
Look, IS this pointless, st#pid, and somewhat belittling? Yea. it is. But, It's the way of life in most every secular and/or exclusive organization and/or group. And it's MORE than instilling some humility as a curve to stave off some, "It's all about ME," Prima Dona Behavior... It's an initiation, a passage rite to show humility & grounding, secularization & unity, and finally acceptance & group mentorship.
And please, This ain't someone getting beaten or drinking to death. This is simple and easy, An It HAS a reason and an aim. God, even IF the dude's a pr#ck, You really MIGHT NEED that vet to show you the ropes, learn something critical from, and ultimately get your back as a TEAMMATE...ya don't show 'em up and proverbially say, "I don't need you, Because I'm better than you."
And man, Look- I HEAR Dez Bryant not wantin' to take cr#p from ANYone, After he had that Combine Interview, Where the sc#mbag NFL-Suit Interviewer, actually called his own Mom a h#, JUST to see HOW Dez would react. Here though? Jesus, It's a simple curve on self-pride, steering it towards the humility of WE and the counting on- US...THIS is different, THESE are the guy's Bryant needs to count on and be part of when they go to war together...
