Found June 21, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
PLAYERS: Phillip Tanner
TEAMS: Dallas Cowboys

According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, running back Phillip Tanner looked more explosive this offseason.   He’s says that’s something that he’s been working on. “I worked a lot on my quickness and explosiveness,” said Tanner. “I lost a little weight and leaned up a little bit. I’m able to see things and hit the hole without hesitating.” Cowboys running backs coach Gary Brown has been impressed with Tanner. “From what I’ve seen so far, he looks like he’s in great shape,” Brown said. “He’s studying. He knows what he’s doing and not making any mental errors.” Tanner is going to have to be ready to fight for his job now that the Cowboys brought in Joseph Randle from this year’s draft.
