Dez Bryant may be ready to put his NFL playing days behind him and follow his passion as a life coach for struggling athletes.

Bryant wants to focus on tending to athletes mental health, and he said he was deeply impacted by Vincent Jackson’s death.

Depression and anxiety, all that s**t is real, man.

Look at Vincent Jackson and God rest his soul. Look at some of our brothers we’ve lost. These young brothers are in their early 30s, 40s … it don’t make sense

Vincent Jackson was a 3-time Pro Bowl wide receiver who played 12 seasons in the NFL.

He suffered from “chronic alcoholism”, and he died alone in a hotel room at the Homewood Suites in Brandon, Florida last month.

Bryant wants to be a mentor to players who struggle with mental illness and addiction, and get them the help and resources they need.

Bryant feels like God has blessed him with the ability to connect with struggling athletes and potentially save their lives.

Shout out to Dez Bryant for wanting to be a blessing to others.
