Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer told ESPN Dallas on Wednesday that Dez Bryant reminds him of Michael Irvin.
Zimmer, a no-nonsense type, is a former longtime Cowboys assistant. "He reminds me of Michael Irvin in a lot of ways," Zimmer said. "The way he can go get the football, his acceleration, his run after catch. His strength. ... He makes some unbelievable catches on back-shoulder fades. I think he's a tremendous football player." Zimmer is game planning against the Cowboys this week.
