Cowboys' captains get a 'C'

For the first time, the Cowboys' team captains are wearing a "C" on their jerseys.

Since 2007, the league has allowed teams to put the "C" -- designating "team captain" -- on jerseys. The Cowboys chose not to add the designation, and at times, they rotated captains. But this year, Jason Garrett had the team vote on its captains, and those five players -- two on offense, two on defense and one on special teams -- each will wear the "C".

Jason Witten, Tony Romo, Mat McBriar, Bradie James and DeMarcus Ware were elected by their teammates last week before the Jets game.

"We feel like those are our guys; those are our captains," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. "We're fortunate that we have a number of other leaders, veteran leaders, who are really good football players who have been around here for a while, who understand what kind of football team we want to be. Those guys are leaders as well. But those five guys were voted captains and will wear that seal all year long."
