With the Combine currently ongoing in Indianapolis, a clip from Travis’ New Heights podcast, which he co-hosts with his brother and Philadelphia Eagles center Jason, in which they discuss the interview process, has resurfaced on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“At the combine, I had some bad interviews,” Travis recalled in March 2023.

“The [Dallas] Cowboys were kind of pressing me about me having this red flag of missing a year and smoking weed.”

In 2010, while a member of the Cincinnati Bearcats, Travis was forced to miss the season after he tested positive for marijuana.


I don’t know if I was having a bad morning or what was going on but I basically was just… I don’t even know if I want to say this – it ended really fast,” he continued.

“That meeting ended really fast. And they’re typically fifteen minutes long, and I was in there for about five minutes.

“I basically just said, ‘If you guys think I’m, you know, gonna be that kind of guy or you’re questioning if I’m still that person after everything that I’ve kind of battled through to get to where I am now from missing a season, then you guys probably go somewhere else and pick somebody else,’ and that is exactly what they did.”

The Cowboys wound up selecting tight end Gavin Escobar out of San Diego State in the second round.
