CARROLLTON, Texas (AP) — A mentally disabled man was all smiles when he saw a table of Dallas Cowboys keepsakes after becoming distraught last week when thieves stole some of his possessions — including his prized Cowboys memorabilia.
Thieves had stolen several hundred dollars worth of items from 53-year-old Butch Franklin's apartment in Addison, a Dallas suburb.
Some friends, autograph collectors and Dallas Cowboys helped replace some of the missing possessions, including the back of a Texas Stadium seat, signed by a few Cowboys, The Dallas Morning News reported.
Franklin on Monday also met linebacker Bradie James and offensive lineman Cory Procter, who said Franklin had had a "rough deal." Procter told Franklin he was sorry.
Franklin asked Procter if he would have a "good season?" Procter answered: "Yeah, heck yeah."
