What a sorry group of people. Guy has enough on his plate trying to play football and block every team's best pass rusher. Having to go to this extent because your family is just behaving like a bunch of leeches? Feel sorry for this kid. I also didn't realize how young this kid is. He won't turn 22 until December. Had a very nice year for them last year considering he played it at the age of 20 most of the year.

Cowboys tackle Tyron Smith hit the jackpot when the Cowboys made him a first round pick in the 2011 draft, leading to a lucrative contract and his play has done nothing to suggest that there won’t be even bigger ones in the years to come.

According to a report in the Dallas Morning News, s0me members of his family have set their sights on getting some of that money. Dallas police responded to a 911 call from Smith’s home on Tuesday where, per a police report, two of Smith’s siblings had shown up to “harass and torment” him “in the pursuit of collecting financial gain.” This is the latest in a string of incidents involving members of Smith’s family, which led Smith to take out a protective order against his mother and stepfather that forbids them from having any contact with him.

“Lesser means were tried and they weren’t successful,” Smith’s attorney John Schorsch said. “You can use your own imagination as to what it took for a guy that big and that imposing to be that worried.”

According to the report, Smith gave a “substantial” amount of money to his family after signing his four-year, $12.5 million contract last year, but that family members have kept coming back for more. Smith wouldn’t comment and attempts to reach his mother were unsuccessful. The Cowboys also did not comment, but they are aware of the issues and had to remove a member of Smith’s family from a training camp practice in Oxnard, California, a couple of hours from where Smith’s family lives, this summer.

The newspaper quotes people close to Smith as saying that the 21-year-old is “emotionally torn up” by what’s gone on with his family, which certainly makes sense.

Do the Cowboys scout their players on the Jerry Springer show?

This kid is talented and trying to do the right thing. Not his fault his family is parasitic.

If that was my family, I wouldn't have a family anymore. Pathetic human beings. His mother wins what she probably thought was the genetic lottery when he was born and now the whole bunch think they're entitled to some of the payout. These people aren't just wrong, or twisted. They're evil.

Please clarify because it seems the implication is since his relatives are unethical parasites, he should also bear the sins of his father.

It's a joke aimed at the Cowboys organization. Both Smith and Dez seem to come from very disfunctional families. Don't read too much into it.

Yeah it sounded like a joke to me. He'll it's hard enough to determine if a player is up to snuff as it is. You have to be Jeff Irelandish to see if family with be detrimental. Must really suck to know that your own blood is out to eff you up.

The problem is that he is a good kid from a good school and up until draft time had praised his family's help in his life. He didn't know his family would do this to him. To get protection is a big deal. This isn't a Dez situation. Just not even close.

Poor Tyron, sounds like it's time to move and not tell his familiy where.
