Cowboys off season sked coming into focus

 Cowboys coach Jason Garrett touched briefly on the new rules of engagement for the off season program under the new collective bargaining agreement which is decidedly more player friendly.

The off season program has been reduced from 12 to nine weeks and will begin on April 16.  For the first two weeks the coaches are not allowed to be on the field with the players at all.

All throwing and team sessions will be run by the players during that time.

Garrett said the Cowboys will conduct a rookie minicamp the weekend after the draft and then begin 10 days of organized team activities around Memorial Day leading up to a mandatory veteran minicamp.

The Cowboys have yet to decide the dates for camp, which will be held in Oxnard, Ca. But Garrett said he plans to begin 15 days prior to the first preseason game, which has yet to be scheduled.

The Cowboys are considering holding a five-day rookie camp for first year players, quarterbacks and injured players before the veterans are scheduled to report. But he has not yet made a final decision he doesn’t want to make camp too long.

Pre-Draft Visits

The Cowboys will start bringing in players for the 30 national pre-draft visits in April 2, 3 and 4. They will then conduct Dallas-day visits for local prospects who went to college or high school in area on April 5-6.
