Report: Antwaun Woods and Trysten Hill sent home from practice on Tuesday for being late for meeting

New, comments

A couple of Cowboys players need to clean up some things.

It’s been almost a year since the Dallas Cowboys were dealing with reported “attitude issues” regarding one of their defensive linemen.

That linemen was Taco Charlton who is now a member of the Miami Dolphins (a flourishing one, for what it’s worth). While the Cowboys did what they could to take care of that issue, it appears that a new one popped up with two other defensive linemen. It was reported on Thursday that both Antwaun Woods and Trysten Hill were sent home from Tuesday’s light practice for being late to meetings.

Tuesday was the first time that the Cowboys got back to work (it was a light practice) since returning from the bye. It’s hardly a good look that two payers, one of them a veteran, were late for it.

While veteran players should indeed know better this is perhaps an even less ideal look for Trysten Hill. He’s a rookie after all and was the team’s first selection during the last draft.

The Trysten Hill selection has hardly been meaningful for the Cowboys through seven games on the season. When the team was considering trading for safety Jamal Adams, it had a lot of people wondering how different things could have been had Dallas just drafted someone like Juan Thornhill or Taylor Rapp.

Instead, they decided to take Trysten Hill who showed up late to the first meeting following a bye week. That stings.

Antwaun Woods provided a statement about this, both on social media and to the local media. Trysten Hill apparently declined to comment, not exactly a good look on top of what already wasn’t one.

It’s not uncommon for the Cowboys to have special guests come speak to the team. Jason Garrett likes to have other successful people speak to the team about various things.

Apparently, in one of those sessions that took place last Thursday, Trysten Hill fell asleep.

Unbelievable.
