Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson wasn’t the only NFL star making headlines yesterday.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant exchanged punches with Cowboys 2nd year cornerback Tyler Patmon, who got a little too aggressive during a team scrimmage in Oxnard, CA.
Patmon grabbed Bryant when he sprinted off the line of scrimmage, and Bryant’s helmet flew off during the contact. Then Byrant ripped Patmon’s helmet off and both men started throwing punches.
Hefty fines will be levied against both players when the NFL reviews the tape.
Afterwards, Patmon, 24, brushed it off as just a normal occurrence at training camp.
“We’re family, man, it’s just intense out here. It’s training camp, it’s part of it”
Bryant, 26, added: “At the end of the day he wasn’t going to back down and I wasn’t going to back down and you seen us: We shook hands, we hugged and we respect one another.”
