Jason Hatcher said there are no stars on the Cowboys defense, just role players with one job -- getting to the football.
“I’m a role guy – there’s no star players,” he said Wednesday at a charity event at Rangers Ballpark. “Don’t care if it’s D-Ware or nobody – we’re all role guys. We’re all going to do our role: get to the football.”
Hatcher was answering a question about where he was going to line up in the Cowboys’ new 4-3 defensive scheme under new coordinator Monte Kiffin.
He said he’ll play wherever he’s asked and perform in whatever role he is asked. He was a defensive end in the 3-4. He will likely be asked to play at defensive tackle in the 4-3.
“Wherever coach puts me, I’m going to play all across the board,” he said. “I don’t care where he puts me. I just want to play football and help our team win the Super Bowl.”
Hatcher already proved to be a winner that day – he won a home-run derby against a handful of other teammates and coach Jason Garrett, part of a fundraiser for the Salvation Army put on by the Cowboys and Reliant Energy.
