Cowboys wide receiver chased animals to lose weight in the offseason

According to Todd Archer of, Cowboys wide receiver Dwayne Harris lost eight or nine pounds since last season by chasing animals in the offseason.

“I’d just go out, man, and look for stuff to run after,” Harris said. “All kinds of stuff. Rabbits. Cats. Everything. Especially when I was back at home with my mom (in Stone Mountain, Ga.). We live in the woods, so there was a lot of stuff running out there.”

Harris says he really loved chasing his pit bull named Polo.

“I’d chase after him because he doesn’t want to come home,” Harris said.

Polo is six years old, Harris says he’s not as quick as he once was.

“He’s not as quick as he used to be, but he’s pretty fast,” Harris said. “He can run straight ahead.”
