300bryant.jpgCowboys rookie wide receiver Dez Bryant learned a costly lesson this week about rookie traditions.

Bryant, who this summer refused to follow an unwritten rule of training camp by not carrying veteran receiver Roy Williams' pads to practice, was stuck with a team dinner bill that totaled more than $54,000, according to ESPN.com.

Williams arranged the dinner at Pappas Bros. Steakhouse in Dallas, and the Dallas Morning News said every Cowboys player was invited. If all 53 players on the team's roster attended, it worked out to a little more than $1,000 a man for Bryant to atone.

The Morning News also said Bryant went along with the plan willingly.
