Training camps are in full gear across the NFL, and tensions are rising.
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott got into it with CB Trevon Diggs during a scrimmage the other day, and the two traded words.
According to reporter Jori Epstein, Prescott appeared to downplay the trash talk between himself and his teammate.
Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is far less concerned about Trevon Diggs trash talk than the internet is. Healthy competition.
I might honestly talk the most, Dak tells us. I start a lot of it. I open the door and make people feel comfortable. pic.twitter.com/8gpypRThBG

Diggs has already established himself as one of the NFL’s finest defensive backs in his three pro seasons, and he will have some significant assistance on the opposite side of the secondary this season.
The Cowboys acquired Stephon Gilmore, a great corner who has five Pro Bowl appearances and was named Defensive Player of the Year in 2019.
Gilmore also has a Super Bowl championship ring, which he got as a member of the New England Patriots in 2018, and it is something that can be worth its weight in gold for a Cowboys club aiming to win one.
Dallas hasn’t won a world title since the 1995 season, and they haven’t even advanced to the NFC title Game since then.
They do, however, have a highly talented roster coming season, including wide receiver Brandin Cooks, whom they acquired last offseason in order to relieve some of the strain on CeeDee Lamb.
However, if the Cowboys are to attain their ultimate goal, Prescott will need to step up his game.
He has a history of underperforming in important games, as he threw two interceptions and only one touchdown pass in last season’s Divisional round playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
