Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett gives repeat statement on WR Lucky Whitehead

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant (88), Dallas Cowboys cornerback Marquez White (39) and Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams (83) make their way onto the field for the morning walk through during training camp in Oxnard, California on Monday, July 24, 2017.

A day later, though, police in Whitehead's home state of Virginia confirmed that the man charged with the crime gave a false identity and is not the former Cowboys player. Jonathan Perok, a spokesman with the Prince William police, said the suspect who was believed to be involved in a June 22 shoplifting incident did not have identification on him when he was initially stopped by authorities. The agent also said Whitehead never appeared in court on July 6 because he never received a citation and summons.

Whitehead was left off the roster for a game previous year when he missed a team meeting, apparently after a late night out.

Jason Garrett daily preaches accountability and responsibility, and the Cowboys have signs around The Star with the same message. Whitehead was arrested for allegedly stealing from a WAWA and later charged with larceny.

Last week, a bunch of soundcloud rappers stole his dog and held it for ransom until he paid up.

Free Agent Derrick Rose Meeting With Cavaliers
ESPN's Brian Windhorst recently reported that Kyrie Irving wants out of Cleveland and out from under the shadow of LeBron James . It is fully expected that LeBron will decline that option and hit the free agent market next offseason (LA Lakers , anyone?).

Rich said that his client wasn't even in Virginia when the arrest was made and pointed to flight records indicating as much.

The Cowboys, however, released Whitehead and cited a pattern of behavior in justifying the move.

Despite the fact that Whitehead is innocent, ESPN's Josina Anderson says the Cowboys have no plans of bringing him back. Dallas police have suspended their investigation because they have not been able to locate the victim, and no witnesses have come forward. Whitehead told reporters that he "didn't know about" the incident.

Dallas moved quickly in letting Whitehead go after two of its players had been arrested during the recent offseason. According to Virginia court records, the 25-year-old has a new arraignment hearing scheduled for August 10 for petit larceny and failure to appear.

Whitehead 25, has played the past two seasons for the Cowboys, appearing in 30 games with two starts. Kasino said he had not kidnapped the dog but had bought it and wanted Whitehead to reimburse him.
