In a powerful moment, Dallas Police Chief David Brown and Mayor Mike Rawlings walked hand and hand with the Dallas Cowboys onto the field for the team's first training camp practice. It was the Cowboys way of paying tribute to the family members of the officers killed in the July shootings in downtown Dallas. Many of those family members also walked along side the players.
After walking onto the field, both Rawlings and Brown spoke to the team and encouraged the players to use their platform as professional athletes to make a difference during these troubled times.
The Cowboys continue to pay tribute by wearing decal stickers on the back of their helmets that read "Arm and Arm."
The idea to have Brown, Rawlings and the officer families join the Cowboys came about a week ago and was organized by executive vice president Charlotte Jones Anderson.
