Former OSU linebacker Orie Lemon with big night in Dallas
By Anthony Slater – Aslater@opubco.com - @anthonyVslater
Orie Lemon is on the bubble.
In the next two days, with NFL teams making their final cuts, Lemon will be one of the last players to make it on the Dallas Cowboys roster or one of the final ones to get axed.
Internally, the Cowboys may have already made the decision. But if they were wavering, last night’s stellar performance may have locked up Lemon’s first spot on a professional roster.
In the midst of an impressive all-around game, Lemon had the highlight of the night, intercepting Miami’s Matt Moore and returning it 26 yards for a touchdown.
Check out the video below. Two things to look for: Lemon’s slick juke at :09 (more embarrassment for Moore) and Dez Bryant’s wild chest bump celebration to congratulate the former OSU linebacker at :19 (so…Bryant looks physically ready for the opener).
Also, here are a few quotes from Lemon, from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
