Dez Bryant singles out Jerry Jones, Jason Witten for skipping Texas protests

Dez Bryant
Many NFL owners, coaches, and front offices have taken part in protests against racism and injustice as something of a show of solidarity with players. Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys is not one of them.

Jones was one of the more vocal opponents of players who knelt during the national anthem to protest injustice previously, and has been fairly quiet over the last week as protests have spread throughout the country following the death of George Floyd. Former Cowboy Dez Bryant took notice of that, and urged him, his son Stephen, and former Cowboys tight end Jason Witten to take part in what looked like a bit of criticism.

It’s not really clear why Witten is included here, but he and Bryant were teammates for eight seasons, so there may be some behind-the-scenes stuff there.

Bryant has been pretty critical of the Cowboys lately, though this is entirely different to basic football criticism. The ex-receiver seems to want Jones to participate.
