It's a slow time during the offseason. Thankfully, the Dallas Cowboys decided to have some fun to pass the time for everybody.

Taking a line out of Jimmy Kimmel's playbook, the Cowboys asked some of their players to read mean tweets folks have written about them. Here's the video to watch it. You won't be disappointed.

Some of the best tweets read:

Tony Romo reads a tweet from @SteffanBusch8 that says, "I want the Dallas Cowboys to be pallbearers at my funeral, so they can let me down one last time." Romo then jokes for the person to give them a call.

Jason Witten reads a tweet from @HollywoodCold85 that states, "Jason Witten slow as hell lol but it works." Witten ponders for a moment before saying, "True."

Cornerback Brandon Carr reads three negative tweets directed at him. His reactions are quite hilarious. There's also a funny tweet backup quarterback Brandon Weeden reads that causes him to laugh out loud. It's great the players are having fun with it because some people sure can be jerks over a game.

Again, it's a must-watch with the news cycle fairly slow at this time.
