Giants Safety Duke Ihenacho Rips Cowboys’ Treatment Of Lucky Whitehead

The Giants’ safety stands up for for the former Cowboys’ receiver on the eve of training camp

NFL: New York Giants at Washington Redskins Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

It has been a relatively quiet off-season for the New York Giants. Concern trolling regarding Odell Beckham Jr.’s mega-stardom aside, there has been little controversy for media outlets to feast upon, and little to talk about in general.

By contrast, division rival Dallas Cowboys have had a noisy off-season, seemingly replete with controversy and players having run-ins with the law. This past week, however, it shifted to fringe receiver and returner Lucky Whitehead. Whitehead was mistakenly accused of petty larceny and a warrant issued for his arrest for a crime he didn’t commit.

The Cowboys released Whitehead in spite of his innocence, seemingly as a sacrificial lamb for Ezekiel Elliott.

New Giants’ free agent safety Duke Ihenacho took to Twitter on the eve of training camp to express his disappointment at how the Cowboys treated Whitehead.

Whitehead was claimed by the New York Jets on waivers, and given their abundance of questions outside of Quincy Enunwa, things might just have worked out for the best for the former Cowboy.

But as Ihenacho said, how Dallas treated Whitehead just wasn’t right.
