Things can get heated in training camp. During the Dallas Cowboys training camp, wide receiver Dez Bryant and safety J.J. Wilcox got into a fisticuffs after Wilcox gave a “cheap shot” at Bryant.
“J.J. put a nice hit on me,” Bryant said. “He pissed me off, but at the end of the day, I loved it. I told him, ‘Keep it coming.’ Hopefully the rest of the guys on that defense – not only the defense, but the offense and the whole team – feed off of that. That’s what it takes to win. That’s what we need to win. You’ve got to have that passion and that love for the game.”
“Dez is a great player,” Wilcox said. “He’s a fiery player. With that being said, I’m trying to catch up and get our defense up to their level. Sometimes you have to bite the bullet and take the bullet. I took the bullet today. It was a great play and he congratulated me. We’re still brothers. We’re going to fight to get this thing turned around.”
Just good clean training camp fire. Let’s hope for the sake of Cowboys’ fans this fire carries over to the season. “America’s Team” has been missing from the playoffs since 2009.
Meanwhile, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, is still the GOAT of NFL owners.
