Jason Witten, Byron Jones get into fun shoving match

The Cowboys closed their offseason with a spirited practice Thursday at The Star that included a shoving match between safety Byron Jones and tight end Jason Witten.

Jones was everywhere on Thursday, breaking up at least three passes as Dak Prescott came after him in team drills.

Early in practice, Jones was covering Witten in the right flat. After the play, both began pushing each other. Witten primarily used one hand, but Jones didn't back down from the 15-year veteran as the two were entangled for a short stretch.

"Just having a little fun, competitive, you know," Witten said. "It's been chippy all offseason between the offense and defense. Just making each other better. He's turning into this player and I'm constantly challenging Byron that I think he can play at that level. I think he can be one of those guys. It's good to have those competitions and get him fired up a little bit. Great stage to do it."

Witten was asked if it's good to see Jones step up and take on more of a leadership role after the Cowboys lost several veteran defensive players in free agency.
