During Sunday’s loss to the Detroit Lions, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver was seen throwing “tantrums” on the sideline. Bryant came out defending his behavior saying it was “all positive.” NFL.com released a video of the sideline exchange between quarterback Tony Romo and Bryant, and it validates his side of things.
It was all about strategy and had Bryant talking about “being the best in the NFL” as an offense or duo, not himself. Romo even came out and defended Bryant, and now tight end Jason Witten is defending him as well.
“There’s nobody I love playing with more on Sundays than Dez,” Witten said on KTCK-AM 1310 and KTCK-FM 96.7 The Ticket, via the Dallas Morning News.
What about the exchange that Witten had with Dez at that game. It looked like the two were arguing with one another, and it appeared like DeMarcus Ware stepped in to put an end to it, restraining Bryant even.
“I was just reminding him there at the end there was still hope, still a chance and that he kind of just needed to let it go and let’s get focused back on these final few seconds,” Witten said.
“Wasn’t about getting [Bryant] the ball…that’s not what kind of guy he is…that’s why we love him.”
