The Tennessee Titans improved to 4-4 on Monday, after beating Dallas.  And while the two-tone-blue is moving forward, gearing up for the New England Patriots, there is still one topic that is still generating a lot of buzz. 

The last player to celebrate on the Cowboys’ star was Terrell Owens.  But Kevin Byard changed that this past week.   

After intercepting quarterback Dak Prescott, he ran to midfield and stood on the logo.  Teammates eventually joined him celebrating and dancing. 

“I wouldn’t just say I planned it the entire work, but it was before the game saying if I make a big play, I want to go out to the star and try to get the team going,” said Byard. 

But that didn’t go over well with Head Coach Mike Vrabel, who ended up speaking with Byard and the entire team on Monday. 

Vrabel said, “That’s not what we want as an organization, that’s not what we want as a head coach.  I want our guys to play as hard as they possibly can for each other.” 

The media spoke to Byard before practice on Wednesday, and while he doesn’t regret doing it, he did regret not celebrating first with his teammates. 

“I’m more concerned with my teammates, looking at me as a leader and I should’ve found my teammates first,” added Byard. 

As of right now, Mike Vrabel has no plans to suspend Byard for any period of time
