Cowboys executives are not the only ones excited about the possibilities that new receiver Dez Bryant will create. After getting a look at Bryant in practice, the players are equally optimistic that Bryant will add punch to an already-potent offense.
Adding something often results in taking away something else and the players understand that their individual opportunities may be reduced, but it will add to the team production.
“I think we’re a more mature team now,” tight end Jason Witten said. “All that matters is winning. If some guys have to sacrifice statistics, that’s no problem. We’re all willing to do whatever it takes to win.”
The Cowboys had a prolific offense last season. They averaged 399.4 points a game, which was second in the NFL behind the Saints’ 403.8.
The Cowboys are hoping to spread the offensive wealth around much more in 2010 and get more payoffs in the end zone and win column.
