Morris Claiborne on Tyrann Mathieu's dismissal: 'No way'
|Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne reacts to the news that former college teammate Tyrann Mathieu has been dismissed from LSU. |
“I heard it and I was like, ‘What? No way,’” Claiborne said. “Then people kept telling me, so I’m going to go watch ESPN now and see what’s really going on.”
Claiborne described his relationship with Mathieu as “very close.” Claiborne said he frequently talks to Mathieu, but they had not discussed the issues that led to the dismissal of the “Honey Badger” from LSU.
“Obviously he did something that he wasn’t supposed to do,” Claiborne said. “But me knowing Tyrann, he’s a great guy, great kid. I mean, sometimes things just happen.”
