Wide receiver Dez Bryant is no longer a member of the organization. Defensive backs Byron Jones and Jeff Heath each spoke of how the Cowboys will miss Bryant’s passion and competitive spirit in the locker room.
Him being out here all the time, always fired up about something. We’ll miss that, Jones said. You can’t replicate that. I am sure he’s going to do well wherever he goes. Added Heath, That was probably line one with [Bryant], just his love for the game. He really demonstrated that when he was out on the field. In games, when he’d get going, I think the whole team fed off that. We’ll definitely miss that about him, but I’ve been in this league long enough to not really be surprised by any move. Jones and Heath spoke to reporters after going through a few lacrosse drills with members of the Dallas Rattlers, the new professional team in town that calls Ford Center home.
But the storyline with the Cowboys remains Bryant’s departure. Jones described his reaction as shock when he heard that the Cowboys were parting ways with their all-time leader in receiving touchdowns last week.
The Jaguars unveiled new uniforms and helmets Thursday, switching to a no-nonsense style that matches the team’s blue-collar identity.
The franchise showed off their new duds at the team’s annual state of the franchise presentation.
True to our current identity and what we want to represent for years to come, our new uniforms are no-nonsense, all business and unmistakably Jaguars, team owner Shad Khan said.
The official unveiling actually came a day after workers at Jacksonville International Airport inadvertently put up life-size posters of current players wearing the uniforms.
The Nike Vapor Untouchable uniforms feature much cleaner lines, which some might consider plain. They have three jersey and pants options — black, white and teal. The all-teal combination, including matching socks, can only be worn during Thursday night games.
The high-gloss black helmets replace the two-tone widely mocked the past five years.
The Giants released veteran wide receiver Brandon Marshall on Thursday, GM Dave Gettleman confirmed.
