DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Poor Kyle Wilber... The Cowboys linebacker came out of the shower once again on a Wednesday to find at least 20 media members standing in front of his locker. They weren't, however, there to speak to him.

Wednesday is the day the Cowboys starting quarterback speaks in front of his locker. And since the quarterback is now Dak Prescott, things have drastically changed for Wilber because he's Dak's locker neighbor at The Star in Frisco.

Wilber's disappointment was captured in an interview with David Helman of

Helman opens his interview by asking a dejected Wilber if he ever just wants to get dressed?

"Yeah, like right now. When you know it's 36 degrees outside and you're standing butt naked in a towel... and you're shivering. And you just want some dry clothes that are being stepped on right now... cause you just want your clothes... Dak!"

Wilber goes onto say that this has been an on-going issue since OTA's, but he was asked at what point did he realize being Prescott's lockermate was going to be a nightmare?

"When the media came to the locker and Dak was the starting quarterback... that's when I knew... crap. But, please change my locker." However, it hasn't changed. And Wilber has an explanation for that too.

"I don't think they like me. It's probably because I look like a 38-year-old Dak Prescott," Wilber says jokingly.

What's even funnier is that Wilber actually does look like an older Prescott. I have a feeling this situation won't be getting any easier for the linebacker, but as long as they keep winning I don't think he'll mind.
