NFL wide receiver Dez Bryant wants to be a life coach for other players, with a focus on mental health.
The 32-year-old receiver who played for the Baltimore Ravens last season told TMZ Sports he’s still devastated by the death of former NFL star Vincent Jackson.
Jackson died alone last month, most likely from what are described as issues related to chronic alcoholism.
Bryant said he believes he’s been blessed with a gift for identifying players struggling with mental illness and addiction.
He said he wants to serve as a mentor to help those players get the help and resources they need.
