VIDEO: Dallas Cowboys' Jay Ratliff Snaps On Reporter After Questioning Regarding Sam Hurd

Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Jay Ratliff was caught on camera snapping on ESPN Dallas reporter Calvin Watkins  and needed to be restrained by Cowboys teammates in the locker room after answering questions from Watkins about former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Sam Hurd, who was recently released by the Chicago Bears after drug trafficking charges filed on Hurd.

Per Watkins twitter feed:

Had a confrontation with a player today I shouldn't have let escalate. I regret not walking away. onward to Saturday in Tampa. -- @CalvinWatkins

Who knows what words were ultimately exchanged between Ratliff and Watkins, but its clear that whatever the beat writer asked it infuriated the Pro Bowl defensive tackle. Some have questioned the relationship Hurd might have had with NFL players, especially in regards to providing cocaine and marijuana to players.

Here is the video of the exchange. Thoughts?
