The San Francisco Chronicle, citing an unnamed Oakland player, reported on Thursday that the Raiders are considering the possibility of joint training-camp workouts with the Cowboys.
The two-team sessions would likely last for only two days. The Cowboys play the Hall of Fame exhibition opener at Canton, Ohio, on Aug. 8 and have a home exhibition against the Raiders on Aug. 12. That leaves two days for joint practice in this area: Aug. 10-11.
Cowboys owner-general manager Jerry Jones has a close relationship with Oakland boss Al Davis, and the teams have practiced together in the past. Many of those sessions deteriorated into brawls.
Working out with the Raiders would add to what is a jammed stretch for the Cowboys. From Aug. 6-14, they will play exhibitions in two cities, practice in three cities and log nearly 3,000 miles in flights.
