But that doesn’t mean the Cowboys’ newest quarterback doesn’t know all about the Cowboys’ best receiver.
“He’s a freak,” Weeden said. “I’m not surprised he’s done what he’s done at all. Dez was born to play one sport and it’s football. He’s a freak. He’s one of my all-time favorite teammates. I loved being around Dez. He’s like a little kid, happy go lucky, a fun guy to be around. I figured his career would go like this, a superstar top-two receiver in the league. I knew it from Day 1 on campus. We were running routes and he ran a bang 8, a skinny post, full speed and the quarterback threw it behind him. He just reached back, caught it with one hand in stride. I was like, ‘Holy cow.’ I knew right then this kid had it.”
