Let’s consider this from a wider perspective.
Every year as we draw nearer to the NFL season starting, much is made about who the captains on the Dallas Cowboys will or won’t be.
In years past people have petitioned for Byron Jones to get the call. Some thought that Orlando Scandrick was deserving (he was finally made a captain in 2017). Every year there is a crowd of folks championing Dez Bryant to finally get the nod.
This shouldn’t be a big deal in an A.D. Cowboys world (After Dez). Dez Bryant is gone. He’s been released. He’ll have a new team soon. So what about who’s a captain?
The issue of captaincy was brought up by Dez himself during his exclusive interview with NFL Network’s Jane Slater on Friday evening. Bryant brought up the people that wear the captains patches for the Cowboys, insinuating that they are the “Garrett guys” who helped lead to his demise in Dallas.
“I’ll say this right here: I believe that ‘Garrett guys’ [are to blame]. I would say that,”
