The biggest news for the Dallas Cowboys heading into training camp was WR Dez Bryant’s arrest last week. And many have weighed in about what it means.
Out here in South Lake Tahoe, legendary RB Emmitt Smith offered some thoughts, and so did WR Miles Austin. Late yesterday, another key figure on this year’s team spoke on the subject.

TE Jason Witten
, one of the team leaders, sounded as conflicted as could be expected when I asked him about Bryant’s arrest. Yes, he’s a teammate. But Witten also expressed disappointment. What did he tell me?
“I don’t know enough about the situation to really comment too much on it until I get further information, but I support him as a teammate,” Witten said before teeing off. “Obviously, he’s a good young man that’s going to be a phenomenal football player, and I was saddened to see that. I do support him. I don’t know enough about it to really comment much more than that, but he’s a good teammate and obviously, hopefully, we can work through it.”
