Default Dolphins GM asked Dez Bryant if his mother was a prostitute

New Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant tells Yahoo! Sports that an NFL executive asked him during a predraft visit if his mother was a prostitute.

“They asked me if my mom’s a prostitute,” Bryant told Yahoo's Michael Silver. "No, my mom is not a prostitute. I got mad – really mad – but I didn’t show it. I got a lot of questions like that: Does she still do drugs? I sat and answered all of them.”

Yahoo! reported, citing an anonymous source that it was Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland who asked the question.

Ireland, a former vice president of scouting for the Dallas Cowboys and who works under Miami's executive vice president Bill Parcells, declined to comment to Yahoo!

Harvey Greene, the Dolphins’ senior vice president of media relations, said: “It’s our organizational policy that we don’t discuss publicly the process we use to evaluate potential draft choices.”
As Mike Wilbon said, I would have flipped the table and knocked his head off.
