Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, Police Chief David Brown and four of the five families representing the Dallas and Dallas Area Rapid Transit officers slain by a sniper earlier this month participated in a brief ceremony before the Cowboys' practice Saturday afternoon. After the ceremony, Chief Brown and Mayor Rawlings each addressed the team. "I'm a Dallas Cowboys fan. I'm a three-generation Dallasite, so it means a lot," Brown said. "It's overwhelming for me and the families, who are all Cowboys fans. This is special and we'll never forget the Cowboys' organization stepping up in our time of grief."
