The Dallas Cowboys are back together for mandatory minicamp practices out at the Star in Frisco.

Before we get underway, here’s how the depth chart lined up for the majority of this first practice:

It was reported yesterday that the Cowboys had reached an agreement to make guard Zack Martin the highest paid at his position. Martin was back on the grind and spoke to the media about his short time away:

Martin explained that it was pretty tough staying away during OTA’s as Martin always expects to be out on the field regardless of if it’s voluntary or not:

Irving only spoke briefly but he was more than happy to get back to football and put some of these other issues on the back burner:

Cole Beasley spoke about new position coach, Sanjay Lal. He certainly didn’t mince any words:

Speaking on the receivers, David Helman had a few notable standouts from today’s drills:

In linebacker news, Leighton Vander Esch is still rehabbing his ankle but Sean Lee was out there in individual drills:

As was reported yesterday, it seems Randy Gregory is looking for reinstatement. Rod Marinelli admitted that it’ll be a long road to get him back a ready to go:

Back into the action, a couple of young guys were really stepping up their games today:

According to Helman, it was the defense that would end up winning the majority of the day in the first practice:

Practice usually ends with some jumping jacks at the end of practice led by Jason Garrett but it ended differently today:
