Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is predicting big things this season following an offseason of controversy.

Bryant told the Dallas Morning News he is "very healthy" after missing four games last season with an ankle injury. During his rookie season, Bryant averaged more than 12 yards per catch and scored six receiving touchdowns, while also returning two punts for scores.

"I feel like this is the year," Bryant told the newspaper. "I'm going to be fully healthy, I'm going to be in full effect. I'm just trying to start where I left off at.

"I would show you all what I've been working on, but wait until the lockout's over and that's when you're all going to see the full effect."

The receiver said that the return of Dallas QB Tony Romo will also benefit the team greatly in 2011.

"Tony is doing a good job with us. I just know that he is going to carry it out through the season and make us better," Bryant said.

Bryant found himself in some trouble this offseason, as he was filed with a pair of lawsuits for not paying for jewelry and sporting event tickets. He was also banned from a Dallas-area mall for refusing to pull up his pants after security told him he was sagging them too low.
