Cowboys WR Dez Bryant says former Cowboys WR Cole Beasley wasn’t wrong for saying Dallas didn’t value the slot wide receiver and made it too easy for opponents to take him away.
“Well he’s not wrong so don’t criticize him for being honest,” Bryant wrote on Twitter. “He didn’t say not one negative thing about the boys.”
Eagles second-year DE Josh Sweat isn’t letting a challenging rookie season affect his confidence as he goes into 2019 and a potentially larger role.
“I’ve always been confident,” Sweat said via NJ.com’s Mike Kaye. “I’ve always thought I had what it took to [play] but I’m in a good place. I feel like I’ll be in a big role … so I’m just taking it day-by-day.”
Sweat was seen as a potential first or second-round talent but fell to the fourth round because of injury concerns. He ended up playing only 68 snaps his rookie season and was shelved with an ankle injury after nine games.
“It was very frustrating,” Sweat said. “I’m not trying to sound cocky but I thought I had what it took to play a lot more … It didn’t happen that way but I still went to work every day at practice. It didn’t matter … I didn’t play a lot but I was ready to go.”
