The last time Brian Waters stepped on a football field was a year and a half ago, when he played for the Patriots in the Super Bowl. Now Waters is back in the NFL with the Cowboys, and he thinks he may be returning to the Super Bowl.
Waters, the veteran guard who signed with the Cowboys this week after taking last season off, said he sees no reason the Cowboys can’t be the best team in the league.
“It’s obvious that this football team is supremely talented,” Waters said, via the Dallas Morning News. “Anybody who knows football knows that this football team for years has been a super talented football team. I think this football team is as talented as there is in the NFL. I believe in that.”
Waters, who grew up in the suburbs of Dallas and played his college football at North Texas, said he already feels at home.
“I grew up here. This is the hometown team,” Waters said. “This is a super talented football team. I believe this team has been close to breaking through and being a playoff team. Honestly, I think they have been close to being a championship football team. The talent, the coaching staff, the organization and growing up here were probably the biggest things that attracted me the most.”
Whether the Cowboys are as talented as Waters thinks is highly debatable, but there’s no doubt that Waters makes their offensive line better.
