During the Dallas Cowboys loss to the Detroit Lions, wide receiver Dez Bryant threw not one, but two tantrums on the sideline. The latter of the outbursts was directed at Jason Witten and DeMarcus Ware stepped in to break it up.

“That’s emotion and I don’t place any issue on his demeanor or his sideline activity,” the Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “He’s a very emotional player and this was a tough game for him to compete in because he wanted to really contribute and do everything he could for the team and to win. I have no issue at all in terms of criticizing him for sideline demeanor or sideline behavior.”

“I think it was just competing,” Jones said. “He’s very emotional here in the dressing room and I think he’s just wired that way and it was just more about the competition. It was in no way an issue in anyway impacts this team negatively, I’m talking about his behavior and his impression and his frustration.”

Apparently, Bryant hugged it out with Witten after the game. Head coach Jason Garrett had a post-game chat with Bryant privately as well.
