Cowboys cornerback C.J. Wilson, a former Baylor standout, stepped up in Wednesday’s afternoon session. He had three pass breakups, including two on back-to-back plays, and drew praise from coaches and teammates.
The free-agent signee, who joined the Cowboys’ practice squad in December, seeks to extend his pro career after spending four seasons in Carolina (2007-2010). The Terrell (Tex.) native said he drew inspiration from a Tuesday night talk with his mother.
“I told my Mama that I’d been struggling the first two days. And she told me that, if I don’t get it right, then I can’t come home and she’s not going to cook me any more of that good dressing,” Wilson said. “So you’ve got to make a change when you’ve got to make a change, man. I’m not ready to go home yet. This is my sixth training camp and I’m just trying to find my ebb and my flow.”
