Dallas Cowboys set dates for training camp


The Cowboys have set the dates for training camp in Oxnard.

Those camping dates are official: The Cowboys will report to training camp July 24 in Oxnard, Calif., and begin their three-week practice schedule on July 25.


The Cowboys are tentatively scheduled to leave Tuesday, Aug. 12 for Denver, where they'll practice with the Broncos on Wednesday and Thursday of that week and then on Friday by themselves before Saturday's preseason game on Aug. 16.

The team will return home after the game to finish their preseason schedule against Houston and Minnesota at Texas Stadium.


Uh oh, Marion Barber and Ken Hamlin haven’t been showing up for workouts at the Ranch. Both guys have yet to sign their tenders. 

The Cowboys are almost seven full weeks into their off-season conditioning program, which is nearing its halfway point.

While nearly all the players have participated in full, Marion Barber and Ken Hamlin have not been among them.

When the Cowboys conduct a three-day OTA (organized team activity) practice schedule next week, it's likely those two players will not be in attendance.

Jerry’s not worried, yet.

"Not at all," Jones said during the team's annual golf tournament for sponsors, held at the Cowboys Golf Course in Grapevine. "I would like them to be here. But right now, we're working on a few things. I think when the time comes, they'll be ready to go."

More on Barber in this Star-T article and a little about Pacman Jones. 

Jerry Jones said suspended defensive back Pacman Jones has been in Dallas since the team traded for him, but that he remains unable to participate in any function at the team facility. Pacman Jones and Jerry Jones have visited, but the defensive back has not taken a physical from the team.

The NFL will have to approve whenever Pacman Jones is allowed to work out with the team at the facility.

"I do want him to come in and be a part of the team activities and off-season conditioning," Jerry Jones said. "I understand why he can’t. … He does know what he needs to be doing to prepare himself strength wise."
