There are many Cowboys fans that make their way out west to see the great splendor of training camp in Oxnard, California.
Oxnard is a welcome change for the Dallas-based Cowboys as, well, Texas is stupid hot in the summer. California is cool, man. If you haven’t ever been out to Oxnard, you should highly consider going if you’re able to.
We now officially know when the Cowboys will be arriving on the west coast. All 32 NFL teams had their reporting dates made public on Thursday. Some teams have rookies arrive earlier, but the Cowboys aren’t rolling that way. Everyone will report on July 25th, 32 days from today.
That’s a little over four weeks from today, and we can expect the annual State of the Cowboys press conference from Jerry Jones, Stephen Jones, and Jason Garrett on the same day.
