Dallas Cowboys Minicamp Day 3 Twitter Feed: Getting Chippy

It's a wrap for Tony Romo, Jason Garrett, and the rest of the Dallas Cowboys as minicamp comes to an end.

Well, things got a little interesting today at the end of the Dallas Cowboys minicamp. First, DeMarco Murray and Jason Hatcher got a bit rowdy with one another on the field, forcing Jason Garrett to step in and get things calmed down. Then Jerry Jones got a bit testy with the national media, denying that there were any problems with getting Michael Jenkins' medical records, despite reports to that effect. And then, in the Twitter stream, Bryan Broaddus and Calvin Watkins got kinda chippy over how well John Phillips has performed.

But now it is over. There will be no official activity for the team until the start of training camp, which is currently set for July 30 in Oxnard (with the rookies, injured players, and the quarterbacks coming into Valley Ranch on July 25). However, Tony Romo does not plan to remain completely idle. What a shame he has no leadership qualities.

One update since the tweets ran down: Rookie OLB Kyle Wilber has now signed his contract. With Matt Johnson's signing earlier in the day, that means that Morris Claiborne is the only rookie not signed, and everyone expects things to fall in place for his deal once some of the other high draft picks around the league come to terms.

Enough fooling around. Follow the jump for the Twitter feed.

Todd Archer

Rookie S Matt Johnson making his debut. On the field for first time since rookie camp. Lot of catching up to do.

Carlos A. Mendez

Cowboys finishing minicamp. Mo Claiborne still w/o helmet but cutting and breaking hard in ball drills. Bruce Carter still just watching.

Carlos A. Mendez

Albright, Connor, Lissemore, Wilber, Felix, Crawford still doing side work. Rat working w/o helmet. Sensabaugh watching. #cowboys

Bryan Broaddus

LIVE from the stadium today, not much going on now, no group work yet. Will report as soon as something happens

Carlos A. Mendez

Cole Beasley is practicing. Fell in a break for the ball in end zone yesterday. Looked like a knee. Does not seem affected today.

Todd Archer

A sore shoulder is keeping undrafted CB Isaac Madison from practicing. Had 2 picks on Wednesday.

Carlos A. Mendez

Cowboys Stadium buzzing with kid campers and parents. 'How I Spent My Summer Vacation. Watching Cowboys Minicamp.' Cool report.

Bryan Broaddus

Noticed that Alex Albright is practicing today or at least he is being used on the scout team for drills.

Carlos A. Mendez

One of the kid campers: Hawk Romo. He's been asleep most of the time, though.

Carlos A. Mendez

Orton again not throwing. Third straight day of extra snaps for McGee, Carpenter. McGee, Romo only QBs to work every day of OTAs, minicamp.

Bryan Broaddus

Matt Johnson has been getting the meetings and practice sent to him on DVD on a daily basis. Smart player, should pick up things quick.

Rob Phillips

Holmes lining up outside today when the offense goes three wide.

Carlos A. Mendez

Situational football: Fourth-and-2. Offense tries to draw encroachment and gets it. Fourth-and-10. Romo to Miles, beat Pool, who slipped.

Josh Ellis

Uh oh, Tyron Smith gave up a sack to DeMarcus Ware in June. This is most certainly reason for concern.

Carlos A. Mendez

Fourth-and-5. Sack by Ware on Free's side. Fourth-and-10, 42-yard TD by dez against carr and pool. Typical Dez. Jump, reach back at pylon.

Bryan Broaddus

Bryant goes vertical on Carr. Perfect pass by Romo to highest point. Problem that Pool was in no position to help. Result was touchdown.

Calvin Watkins

Brodney Pool just got beat for along with Brandon Carr on a deep TD reception to Dez.

Nick Eatman

LB Bruce Carter still sidelined with a hamstring injury. With Dan Connor also out, LB Orie Lemon working with first team.

Bryan Broaddus

I really like the quickness of Dunbar to the edge. Good job by Smith at point allowed Dunbar the edge. Explosive.

Carlos A. Mendez

About situational football: Pass rush not quite full speed, and rushers hold up if they're free. Ware would have gotten Romo before dez TD.

Calvin Watkins

Kevin Ogletree just dropped deep ball from Romo.

Bryan Broaddus

Orie Lemon loses leverage on the outside to Witten. Nice throw by Romo for first.

Bryan Broaddus

Garrett channelling his inter Sam Wyche with an attack no huddle offense putting a lot of pressure on Ryan group to react with personnel.

Bryan Broaddus

John Phillips continue to make plays down the field. Running much better and playing with confidence.

Carlos A. Mendez

McGee's two-min drive falls short. But showed something new. Under pressure, started to run, pulled up at LOS, hit Beasley on sideline out.

Josh Ellis

A bootleg call for Romo in short yardage- Forced a floater to Phillips, who wasn't looking. Picked by Sean Lee. Good time for the bad Romo.

Carlos A. Mendez

Matt Johnson is practicing. How do I know? He just made a stop on an off-tackle fullback keep. Didn't fool him. #cowboys #kidsafety

Bryan Broaddus

Murray just hummed the ball at Hatcher after he got stopped on GL. If NFL is watching, they might lose some practices with way this is going

Todd Archer

Jason Garrett calls team together after some chippy play between Jason Hatcher n DeMarco Murray

Calvin Watkins

Defense laughing after Witten's TD catch ruled incomplete because he stepped out of bounds.

Bryan Broaddus

Ryan calls for 2nd goal line and Matt Johnson is in at safety.

Rob Phillips

Dunbar again showing speed to the edge on a goal line TD run. Not the biggest back; got stuffed earlier on a dive.

Bryan Broaddus

Josh Brent from the backside beats Leary across his face for a tackle for loss. Brent needs to get off blocks quicker. Good sign there.

Calvin Watkins

I'm down on John Phillips right now.

Carlos A. Mendez

More goalline: @1: Romo to Witten TD. @2: Scott to right pylon for TD. @2: Calloway TFL Scott. @2: Silva pbu McGee to Hanna.

Bryan Broaddus

Last two days have been good coverage days for Scandrick. Not much separation in his game.

Calvin Watkins

Barry Church missed a PBU a Witten makes a nifty catch across the middle.

Calvin Watkins

Victor Butler does nice job shedding blk of Tyron smith on screen pass.

Bryan Broaddus

Defense has come a long way, Garrett tries the throwback screen to Phillips that scored last time we were here. Victor Butler with the stop

Bryan Broaddus

Was wondering if my buddy @calvinwatkins has seen the last two Phillips plays? Maybe down on Dez too?

Tim MacMahon

Mike Leach is at JerryWorld watching Cowboys practice. Wouldn't count on warm embrace between him and A&M's Stephen McGee.

Todd Archer

Haven't seen Phillip Tanner take snap in practice. Turning into Lance Dunbar show. Maybe Tanner has a slight injury.

Carlos A. Mendez

John Phillips having a good practice. Catching all. Screen. Long pass at goal line. Adjusted to throw to his trailing shoulder from McGee.

Bryan Broaddus

Stephen McGee just doesn't make decisions quick enough. He still has the problem of holding the ball too long.

Todd Archer

Phillips did have a drop in that sequence.

Calvin Watkins

I just don't see the love behind John Phillips. He made a dumb move on a pick by Lee. He hit Lee in the neck.

Calvin Watkins

u don't hit ur best player in the neck during offseason practices. Stupid.

Bryan Broaddus

Geez everyone is getting hit in the damn neck. It's a football practice.

Carlos A. Mendez

Tough time for McGee in red zone/GL passing. Pressured. Threw away three balls. Not much open, though. Is getting a lot of work, at least.

Josh Ellis

You might want to think about DeMarco Murray with a high first round pick in fantasy football. He's caught a LOT of passes this summer.

Bryan Broaddus

James Hanna with a nice catch in traffic in 7 on 7. Seems easy for him to do that but when wide open, the ball is on the ground.

Bryan Broaddus

Vickers did something I haven't seen from a full back in a while, great adjusting catch working away from Romo in the flat.

Bryan Broaddus

Holmes takes Carr vertical up the sideline. Carr needs to get his hands on the WR to carry him like that. Holmes able to make play

Bryan Broaddus

Just wanted Matt Johnson in man coverage, at snap was able to adjust to his man didn't look concussed. Next play dropped as true FS.

Carlos A. Mendez

Cowboys doing a lot of 11 on 11 today. More highights: Miles fallaway catch on sideline. Holmes deep ball. Lee pick off a Romo boot.

Bryan Broaddus

For all you Cole Breasly fans, he just beat Taplin-Ross down the seam for a catch that would have been a large gain.

Bryan Broaddus

Cole Beasley has been deep catching punts the last two opportunities.

Bryan Broaddus

Holmes with a drop against Teddy Williams on a come back in two minute, then had a tough chance on a in route just out of his reach.

Josh Ellis

This has been the ugliest of ugly practices for Stephen McGee.

Rob Phillips

Asked about http://NFL.com report that Jenkins hasn't shared all his medical info from shoulder rehab, Jerry says team has it all.

Rob Phillips

No issues with Mike as far as communication goes while he has been in Florida, Jerry says.

Josh Ellis

4th-round pick Matt Johnson has agreed to terms with the Cowboys and expects to sign this afternoon. Leaves Claiborne as the only pick left.

Josh Ellis

Whoops... Forgot about 4th rounder Kyle Wilber. Two to go.

Calvin Watkins

Jerry Jones said he expects Morris Claiborne to report on time from a health standpoint for training camp.

Calvin Watkins

I believe it was a procedural issue in getting Jenkins' medical records. Jenkins wasn't trying to deny the Cowboys anything.

Calvin Watkins

Jason Garrett on McGee: "Stephen did a good job." Said he made strides. Said its hard sometimes for him with so many inexperience players.

Calvin Watkins

Medical staff told Jerry Jones Morris Claiborne won't be placed on PUP.

Carlos A. Mendez

DeMarcus Ware says there weren't a lot of mistakes on defense in OTAs and minicamp. 'Guys were really aggressive, really comfortable.'

Carlos A. Mendez

Dwayne Harris says the Cowboys want him to get under 200 pounds. He's at 205. Radway, Bryant have looked slimmer in OTAs, minicamp.

Rob Phillips

Jerry didn't sound confident the Cowboys could get training camp moved up. Would involve a lot of work with the NFLPA in a short time.

Josh Ellis

RT @CrawDadde Romo have a bad mini-camp?} Not at all. One silly throw. Don't have to worry about him.

Josh Ellis

RT @Pablo00L How many times do you guys say that about Romo every off season?} Not enough.

OK. That's a wrap. Hope you had as much fun as I did.
