IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Sprawled across a navy blue sofa, Dimitrius Underwood doesn't have a care in the world.
He's sound asleep in the middle of the Dallas Cowboys locker room. A morning practice is done and now it's the lunch hour. A nap is his favorite way to prepare for the upcoming defensive meeting and second practice of the day.
The serene scene doesn't seem to fit. All the public really knows about this 23-year-old lineman is that he didn't make it with two NFL teams and once slashed his own throat with steak knives.
Yet, here he is, three days into his first minicamp with his third team and ... nothing.
He participated in every drill of every session. He was the left defensive end on the first team for two days, then joined the second team when an injured starter returned.
If you didn't know he was No. 91, you wouldn't have known he was there.
No news is definitely good news for Underwood. It's a sign he might finally be headed in the right direction.
