It’s been a rather quiet day on the field for OTA practices but we would be remiss not to show you the headlines coming out of today. First up, Dez Bryant is not even interested at a ‘clap-back’ for Josh Norman.

Another receiver is out there putting in the work, yesterday it was the very elusive “hands” catch for Terrance Williams. Today, we got Brice Butler with his own snag:

A big shout out to our guy, Landon McCool, on his special day! Happy Birthday to our very own BTB Podcaster and good pal!
Happy birthday to @McCoolBTB, one of the greatest FF minds out there.— Tom Ryle (@TomRyleBTB) June 1, 2017
Dez Bryant also got to chirping about the young defensive backs on the roster and how exciting it is to teach them how to cover big time receivers like himself.

Not sure what any of this means but there is hope that we’re getting closer to the end of this whole saga:
