Dez Bryant has denied that a question from Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland in a predraft interview asking if his mother was a prostitute was prompted by something Bryant said. "No, I didn't tell him my dad was a pimp," Bryant said in a text message to ESPN's Ed Werder on Thursday. A league source told's Matt Mosley details of the conversation first reported by earlier Friday were accurate. During the meeting, the source said, Ireland asked Bryant -- during a talk about Bryant's upbringing and relationship with family members --- what his father did for a living when Bryant was growing up, which apparently prompted this exchange: Bryant: "My dad was a pimp." Ireland: "What did your mom do [for a living]?" Bryant: "She worked for my dad." Ireland: "Your mom was a prostitute?" Bryant: "No, she wasn't a prostitute."
