IRVING, Texas (AP) - With audio available to back up Dez Bryant's claim that he was saying only positive things at Tony Romo in a sideline rant last weekend, the Dallas quarterback was ready to offer a passionate defense of his top receiver.
Romo took care of it without the arm-waving that landed the emotional Bryant in the headlines again, saying Thursday the receiver is a "positive guy who loves his teammates."
NFL Films released audio that backed Bryant's claim that he was trying to be supportive in a 31-30 loss to Detroit.
There's no audio of a heated exchange between Bryant and tight end Jason Witten after the Lions scored with 12 seconds left. But both downplayed it.
