IRVING, Texas (AP) - A Dallas Cowboys official says the team is looking to improve how it deals with drunken driving in the wake of two high-profile player arrests.
Player development consultant Calvin Hill said in a statement Monday that the team understands the dangers of drunken driving, especially since it had ``recently experienced the most tragic of circumstances regarding this issue.''
Defensive lineman Jay Ratliff was arrested last week in Grapevine after sideswiping a semitrailer truck. His blood-alcohol level was measured at twice the legal limit.
That came a month after fellow Cowboy Josh Brent was indicted on an intoxicated manslaughter charge in a crash that killed practice squad player Jerry Brown.
Hill says the Cowboys have been in contact with Ratliff about his arrest and ``will monitor the legal process.''
