A day after engaging in sideline confrontations with two of the Dallas Cowboys’ captains, wide receiver Dez Bryant expressed strong love and respect for Tony Romo and Jason Witten, teammates he considers role models.
Bryant isn’t apologetic for his actions during the Cowboys’ 31-30 loss to the Detroit Lions at Ford Field, but he’s adamant that his sideline demeanor was borne out of competitive fire, not anger toward Romo and Witten.
“Tony Romo and Jason Witten, those are our leaders,” Bryant said Monday. “Those are our main guys. The reason why I’m able to voice my opinion is because those guys helped me become who I am to where I can do that.
