Ratliff’s blood-alcohol content was twice the legal limit.
“Very disappointed, and obviously having one situation like that is one too many,” Garrett said. “We’re trying to do …everything we can to help our players make the right decisions, and we’ll continue to do that going forward.”
Garrett said the legal process will have to “play out” before a decision is made on Ratliff’s future. Ratliff faces possible discipline from the league.
Ratliff, who played in only six games, with no sacks, has five years left on his contract. He is scheduled to make $5 million and count $7 million against the cap.
The Cowboys met with Mothers Against Drunk Driving, whose national office is in Las Colinas, after the Super Bowl. MADD chief executive officer Debbie Weir has met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell at least twice since Brown's death, and she attended Goodell's state of the NFL address at the Super Bowl when he was asked about Ratliff and what more the league can do to curtail drinking and driving by its players.
