Dallas Cowboys: Second Year Players Hope For Redemption In 2016

Byron Jones and Lucky Whitehead are both hoping their 2nd year in the NFL is much better than the first.

Byron Jones and Lucky Whitehead are both hoping their second year in the NFL is much better than the first.

FRISCO, TX — With the pomp and circumstance of the opening of the Star finally out of the way, the Cowboys could finally get back to business as usual.

Of course after last season most of the guys on this team will be hoping for something new.

That especially goes for second year players like Lucky Whitehead and Byron Jones who joined a team last year that they thought was one step away from a championship, and then got a rude welcome to the NFL.

“We went through the wringer, I would say,” said Whitehead a dual receiver and kick returner. “It wasn’t our ideal year but you learn from it and we’re definitely growing as a team.”

Something else this team hopes grows is their turnover total. Last year the D only had 11 takeaways, dead last in the league, and it has Jones itching for a change, and his first career interception.

“Everyday we’re working on strips, we’re working on taking the ball away, interceptions and for me instead of getting a bunch of PBU’s [Passes Broken Up], trying to get one and try to get two hands on it,” said Jones, the Cowboys first round pick in 2015.

Well, these guys are going to get their chance to make an impact, and try to make sure that their sophomore season lives up to the hype that last year originally had.
