Dez Bryant and Tyler Patmon Fight at Cowboys Training Camp (Video)
NFL training camps are officially open, and that means a few things for all of you football fans out there.
For starters, it means the 2015 NFL regular season is right around the corner, so you better start prepping for your fantasy football drafts.
It also means the football highlights should start rolling in. Sure, these spectacular plays may not count because they’re taking place during practices or scrimmages, but they’re still pretty fun to watch.
And finally, the start of NFL training camps means it’s fighting season, as we’re always treated to at least a few teammate-on-teammate skirmishes during this time of year.
Today we bring you the first training camp fight from the 2015 offseason. It comes from the Dallas Cowboys camp in Oxnard, California, and it involves star wide receiver Dez Bryant and cornerback Tyler Patmon, as the two exchanged punches during a play.

And it didn’t stop there, as Bryant went after Patmon again after the play was over and the two had seemingly been separated:
So what exactly was that all about? According to Patmon, it was just a matter of “brothers fighting.” As for Dez, he attributed it to “two great competitors going back and forth.” You can see another clip of the fight, along with comments from both combatants, in the video below:
