Cowboys players continue to get work in as the “offseason” continues

The word off in offseason should be taken rather lightly. Multiple Cowboys players have taken to social media over the last few days to show they are still getting plenty of work in this “offseason”.

We are a little under a month away until the Cowboys head to Oxnard, California for training camp. The Cowboys have already held their rookie-minicamp, OTA’s, and mandatory minicamp, and are now taking a break away from football until training camp kicks off. Here’s the thing, when you play with an NFL team you never really “take a break”, and multiple Cowboys’ took to social media over the last few days to show everyone the work they’re continuing to put in.

Lance Lenoir who is on the roster bubble in a crowded wide receiver room is getting in an explosive workout. Lenoir who is listed at 6-foot-0, 210-lbs was last clocked a 4.55-40 yard dash back when he attended Western Illinois. From the looks of this video, Lenior is moving pretty good on an incline hill in the scorching heat. Something he’ll need to do if he wants to make the 53-man roster.

Terrance Williams also posted on his Instagram story that he was getting some work in at The Star in Frisco. This is actually a little bit of breaking news, because to my knowledge he has yet to do any on the field activities since injuring his foot back in March. Williams has had a rough start to an offseason that both the team and Williams himself needed to avoid. In a wide receiver room with little experience and a lot of uncertainty, Williams needs to make sure he gets on the field and stays out of trouble. From the looks of this video, it looks like he’s making strides in the right direction.

Third-year safety Kavon Frazier is also hard at work looking to see a bump in playing time in the upcoming season. Frazier posted on his Instagram a video of himself, Ezekiel Elliott, and Jamil Showers working out in both the weight room and on the practice field. Frazier is a big-bodied strong safety who has excelled on special teams and played well as a rotational safety at the end of the 2017 season. Frazier, a former-sixth round pick is entering his third year as a member of the Dallas Cowboys. He’s continuing to put in a ton of work that his teammates and coaching staff notice.

Jihad Ward, who is a new face around the Cowboys locker room, is getting his work in on an off day as well. Ward, who came over in a trade in exchange for wide receiver Ryan Switzer, is looking to restart his career and all the reports coming out of Frisco are that he’s been very impressive so far. Keep puttin’ in the work big fella’.

If you take nothing else away from this video, take away that Taco Charlton is learning. If you want to be the best, you need to hangout with the best, and that’s exactly what Charlton is doing. Taco and DeMarcus are hard at work this offseason to prepare for the upcoming season. Lawrence took the league by storm last year with an impressive 14.5 sack season. Charlton, the 2017 first-round pick struggled at the start of the season, but started to come on at the end of the season. The Cowboys need both of these pass rushers to have a big year in 2018.

Darius Jackson suffered a knee injury last year with the Browns that forced him to miss the entire 2017 season. Jackson looks to be hard at work making sure his body is in shape for training camp. Jackson was drafted by the Cowboys in the sixth-round of the 2016 NFL Draft, then released in the middle of the season. Jackson spent time with the Browns last year before being waived at the end of the year. In a crowded running back room, Jackson is looking to catch back on with the team he started his professional career with.

Another former sixth-round pick by the Dallas Cowboys is getting some work in this “offseason”. Cornerback Marquez White is looking to earn one of the last spots on the cornerback depth chart after spending last season on the practice squad. White played his college football at Florida State University, and was repping his former teams headgear while working out earlier in the week. White is slated to be the teams fifth or sixth corner at the start of the season, so he’s making sure he’ll be ready to go when training camp kicks off on July 28th.
