James playing special teams

Cowboys linebacker Bradie James has had his playing time reduced by the emergence of second-year veteran Sean Lee. James has played only 76 of 180 defensive plays.

So James, one of the team's defensive captains, volunteered to play special teams.

James wouldn't talk about it Wednesday, but he covered two kickoffs Monday night. It was the first time since early in his career that the nine-year veteran has played on special teams.

James has led the team in tackles for six consecutive seasons. He is 11th this season with eight tackles.

After Monday night's victory over the Redskins, James talked about the need to be unselfish to help the Cowboys get to where they want to go.

"Man, we've got the right type of guys on the team, and we've got to keep them," James said. "Everybody has to play unselfish for us to be successful. And that's really what it's about, man."

Thanks, I'm going to have nightmares tonight.

That's the kind of unselfish attitude ALL the players need..Cudos Bradie James.

Bradie said "Everybody has to play unselfish for us to be successful. And that's really what it's about, man."
Translated: I need a job and if I can't be productive somewhere JJ the GM is gonna fire my behind.
