Wade Phillips restated his opposition to rookie hazing on Wednesday but said he did not think that the Cowboys’ sticking Dez Bryant with a $55,000 dinner tab qualified as harassment.
Cowboy veterans made Bryant pay for dinner at a Dallas steakhouse on Monday night as part of the rookie initiation and also because Bryant refused to carry the shoulder pads of veteran Roy Williams after a training camp practice.
“I think every team has something like that,” Phillips said. “I don’t know if I consider that hazing when you have a dinner together.”
