Dez Bryant Seems Rusty, Struggles With JUGS Machine in Practice

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is trying to shake some rust off his previously great hands.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is finally back on the practice field. After a tough 2015 season that was riddled with injury, Bryant is looking to have a bounce-back 2016 season. The only thing that he has to do is knock off the rust.

The two-time Pro Bowler is looking forward to staying healthy for the entire season, but playing only nine games last season seems to have affected him. At a recent Cowboys' training camp practice, his hands failed him. His great hands helped him become an elite receiver, a guy who could make incredible catches.

But in the video below, you will see Dez struggling to catch footballs from a JUGS machine.

 

To be fair, Dez is standing close to the machine, which is launching footballs at a very high velocity. If anything, it shows how impressive his hands are when he does make a catch. This is a good drill to improve hand strength and catching ability, but you may not want to stand so close, because it could injure your fingers.
