Cedric Thornton: Cowboys OTAs have “a lot more impact” than Eagles practices
Offseason practices aren’t supposed to have contact. Plenty still do.
In Dallas, for example, new Cowboys defensive tackle Cedric Thornton, seemed to admit that contact is happening in Dallas offseason workouts while explaining the differences between practices there and in Philly.
“A lot more aggressive,” Thornton said. “A lot more impact in our walk-throughs.”
The NFL and NFL Players Association seem to be willing to tolerate a modest amount of contact during offseason workouts since, after all, it’s football. But if Dallas practices entail “a lot more impact” than the practices in Philly, that’s the kind of thing that could spark an investigation and, possibly, the loss of practice time and the imposition of fines.
