Josh Norman, Dez Bryant exchange words after Redskins-Cowboys game

Bryant was limited to two catches for 26 yards in the Cowboys' 33-14 loss, and after the game Norman said the Cowboys should "get Dez's $70 million back", referencing the five-year, $70 million deal Bryant signed in the summer of 2015. They won the game so you got to tip your hats off to them. Of course, the Cowboys defensive backs are used to Bryant talking smack on a daily basis and weren't surprised to hear about Bryant's comments.
