Dez Bryant and Dallas cornerback Tyler Patmon had to be separated in a heated exchange that lasted several minutes before quarterback Tony Romo finally stepped in and calmed his star receiver late in Sunday's practice at training camp.
Bryant, who has a history of sideline antics that include screaming at coaches and teammates, went after Patmon several times after it appeared the incident during 11-on-11 drills was over.
When practice ended a few minutes later, coach Jason Garrett spoke briefly to Bryant, who then walked over to Patmon and hugged him while fans nearby cheered after earlier yelling at Bryant to calm down.
Bryant, who recently signed a five-year, $70 million contract, said he "got a little overheated."
