When Barry Church departed for Jacksonville this offseason, it not only left a void in the starting lineup, but also in the team captains.
With 2016 captains Jason Witten, Travis Frederick, Sean Lee, and Dan Bailey returning, someone on defense will need to take Church’s role as co-captain to Lee. Dallas has typically selected two offensive captains, two defensive captains, and a special teams captain; they have declined to fill the allotted sixth slot each of the past four seasons.
So who is in line for the second captain’s patch on defense? And with Dak Prescott and Dez Bryant waiting in the wings, could this be the year the team elects a sixth captain?
That’s the topic on today’s edition of CowboysCast.
