Josh Norman says Dez Bryant didn't say 'unload the clip' after all


By now you've probably read about the Thanksgiving trash talk between Redskins cornerback Josh Norman and Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant. Who said what, who did what, how others reacted, and so forth. 

Even Norman and Bryant seem to have tired of the back and forth. 

Speaking with reporters on Monday, the Washington corner downplayed their war of words.

“It really wasn’t a situation. It was a game. We lost. They won. That was it," Norman said, via The Washington Post

Norman also refuted a previously reported claim that Bryant said to him, "Where I'm from, we unload the clip." 

Norman initially claimed the fight started when Bryant told him, “Where I’m from, we unload the clip.” Norman confirmed twice after the game to the Post that Bryant said that, but clarified on Monday that Bryant did not say the phrase. It’s a phrase Norman intended as a metaphor to describe himself, how he’s going to give it his all on the field.

For what it's worth, Bryant immediately disputed he said those words to Norman.


The Dallas receiver also spoke about the Thanksgiving dustup today.

"I’m really not trying to talk about that, but I wish I never did what I did, but that’s OK because it’s over with now,” Bryant said, via ESPN. “I’m not even focused on that. I’m not even fitting to open up another can. It’s all said and done. I wish I’d never done it. It happened. It’s over with.”

"I have nothing against that guy, I’m pretty sure he’s got nothing against me. It is what it is.”
