Welcome in to the first tweet break for the month of June here on Inside The Star. For Cowboys Nation, the start of the month means just one thing, and that's the fact that – as a fan base – we are inching closer to Dallas Cowboys football!
For now, the team is still working through OTAs, which has brought the Twitterverse tons of great silver and blue content. Let's dive into this week's best.
#Eagles have 2 players wearing red pinnies No. 82/88. Speculation is they are doing scout team stuff, simulating Cowboys Bryant and Witten
As I mentioned moments ago, the Cowboys and every other team around the league are pretty early in their preparations for the 2016 season. This did not stop the Eagles from using some OTA time this past week to “get ahead” on understanding the Cowboys offense.
As we have seen with the Cowboys' practices so far, the focus has been dominantly on making internal improvements. Meanwhile, Philadelphia realizes that a healthy Dez Bryant is ready to torment them once again and is already looking for potential solutions.
We'll check back next week to see if they've figured anything out, but don't hold your breath on that…
Heads up, Odell. https://t.co/lO9tAwHqou
While we're in the NFC East, let's visit the New York Giants and Odell Beckham Jr. – who always seems to be in the news for things unrelated to the game of football. Apparently the team's best offensive weapon has begun dating Khloe Kardashian, which is also apparently newsworthy.
Moving on, we have a team that's actually focused on the football that lies ahead for them, and that team is none other than our Dallas Cowboys.
The competition all over the field for the Cowboys has been evident, with one of the primary battles taking place across from Dez Bryant at the WR2 position. Brice Butler is looking to bounce back from his injury and replace Terrance Williams on the outside.
Butler's best chance to do so will be to make every play possible when working with Tony Romo. So far, as you see in his own tweet, this has not be a problem for the former Oakland Raider – as Romo has his own history of maximizing the production from all of his targets.
For #Cowboys WR Dez Bryant, the positive news on his X-Ray doesn't mean he's back. But football drills is the next step. He's in the clear.
Dez Bryant has been mentioned a few times in this article, and #88 is progressing nicely in his return to action. While he is still being cautiously limited by the team in practice, it is nice to see Bryant doing everything he can to set himself up for a big year here in the early stages of June.
If Bryant needs added motivation for his preparation, he can also look at his recent “NFL Top 100” ranking, which saw him come in at #51. You can read all about how claiming there are 50 football players in the National Football League better at the game of football than Dez Bryant is absurd by clicking over to this piece by Staff Writer RJ Ochoa.
However, it's also worth bringing this tweet in one more time to show the respect that Bryant has around this league as a play maker.
A player that will help the passing game out this season on offense is rookie Ezekiel Elliott. So much has been said and tweeted about when it comes to Elliott, but not often has he done his own writing about his current situation in Dallas' backfield.
It may be brief, but it's to the point and only further shows that Zeke is the right kind of guy for this team.
