Jones enjoyed seeing Dez Bryant brawl at camp

The Dallas Cowboys have rarely been out of the headlines this off-season and it now appears that their latest one could be cause for concern.

A video circulated on Monday which showed wide receiver Dez Bryant and cornerback Tyler Patmon involved in a brawl at training camp.

Jones not concerned?

Most NFL team owners might be a bit upset to see the wide receiver who has just recently signed a big money deal getting involved in a camp fight.


Is the Cowboys camp fight a cause for concern? Have your say by signing up now to become a GMS writer:

Jerry Jones is not one of those owners though as he has welcomed the images which some found surprising.

Of course it is not a shock to see team-mates fighting during training camp, but it seems like Bryant and Patmon were genuinely going for it.

However rather than being unhappy to see his players seemingly implode in camp, Jones has claimed it is a great throwback to another time.

"That’s been happening at our training camps for years and years and years. It is a throwback to the years when you saw Michael Irvin out here, Deion [Sanders] and those guys.” - Jones on the camp brawl

Whatever your thoughts on the Cowboys or even Jones himself, he certainly does seem to understand what happens when tempers flare.

Arguably not all owners would be so calm about the situation but at least Jones appears to be willing to let the coaches handle any situation which could become problematic.

Need to stay focused

The Cowboys are in for a big year with the race for the NFC East set to be even more interesting than last year.

It seems once again to be down to the Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles but with the Eagles making some remarkable recruitment choices this off-season, the race could be very unpredictable.

The Eagles have sealed deals for some of the biggest names in the league like runningback DeMarco Murray whilst also trading for questionable players like quarterback Sam Bradford.

Tim Tebow has also signed on with the Eagles who traded away runningback LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills and lost wide receiver Jeremy Maclin in free agency.

The Eagles may be one of the more unpredictable teams in the NFL next season and their head to head battle with the Cowboys could be one of the most interesting.
