Cowboys | Rivera Discusses Refund Comment
Dallas Cowboys OG Marco Rivera (back) said his initial reaction was to return his $9 million signing bonus when he found out that he'd need microdiscectomy surgery on his back following a workout injury suffered shortly after he signed a five-year, $20 million deal with the Cowboys, reports Mickey Spagnola of DallasCowboys.com. "That was my first thought," said Rivera. "I don't want to be a guy who signs with a team, collects a check and sits on the sideline. If I'm going to be there, I want to help win championships, or I'm out." Rivera eventually changed his mind after talking with team personnel.
