The first day of the 2008 training camp has come a gone and boy was it a doozy. While by all accounts the practice itself was a bit boring there was a ton of stuff going on off the field. It will be nice to see that now that we have some kind of resolution regarding Terry Glenn and all of the draft picks are signed we can really start focusing on the play on the field.
Here are some quick links to stories from the world wide web:
The release of Terry Glenn hinged on doctors saying his knee could go anytime.
Jim Reeves says that the Cowboys failing to draft a receiver now has them in desperate times to land a true #2 threat. I don't think the Cowboys ever really put all their hopes and dreams in Terry Glenn, but I never saw the perfect oppurtunity to bring in another receiver. It typically takes a few years for a receiver to adjust to playing in the NFL and reaching for one in the draft would have been a mistake. The Cowboys may still make a play for a trade, but it all depends on the asking price.
According to Matt Mosely the Cowboys waited too long on making a decision on Glenn and it all ended in embarrassing fashion.
