Randle was not prepared for that, to say the least.

“I said I went salsa dancing twice during the summer (when they asked), ‘Have you done anything out of the ordinary?' They ask me to do the salsa on national TV. I'm just gonna chill on that.”

Randle did, however, did give the audience a little shoulder roll from his chair.

“I didn't want to let them all down,” he said.


Wes Lunt has gone through three practices as the Cowboys' starting quarterback, and offensive coordinator Todd Monken has been pleased with his progress so far.

“He's sped back up and he's back to where he was (at the end of the spring),” Monken said. “The good news is that he's doing great, and he really still doesn't know what he's doing.

“His decision-making and his accuracy have been fine. He hasn't turned it over. The reality is where to go with the ball — what the defense is doing and where do I go with the ball and then throw it accurately.”
