IRVING, Texas --Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan is feeling good about the Cowboys' new crop of defensive players, as well as his own health.
Ryan confirmed he has dropped 35 pounds since undergoing the lap-band procedure to increase weight loss earlier this offseason.
"Obviously I have," he said with a laugh. "That's a good thing. It's only been a couple months.
"Breathing at night -- my wife and I are looking for the long haul here. I did it for health, not for beauty."
The procedure has not affected Ryan's normal office schedule this offseason.
