The Cowboys will begin their final offseason workouts before the start of training camp in late July with a three-day mandatory minicamp, Tuesday through Thursday at the team's Valley Ranch training headquarters.
However because for the new offseason rules with new collective bargaining agreement don't expect the minicamp to involve much action. It will be a glorified OTA session.
Players are allowed to wear helmets but there will be no shoulder pads and no live contact.
Certainly the highlight of the minicamp is the expected arrival of disgruntled cornerback Mike Jenkins who has boycotted the offseason program and has asked for trade.
The minicamp is mandatory and team's allowed to fine players up to $60,000 for not showing up.
Jenkins has let the Cowboys know through his agent that he smartly plans to attend.
Jenkins however may not participate in the camp as he spent much of the offseason rehabbing from offseason shoulder surgery.
He has been unhappy with his role on the team since the Cowboys free agent Brandon Carr to a five-year, $50.1 million contract in March and then drafted LSU standout Morris Claiborne with the sixth ovearll pick in the draft.
Jenkins, a former Pro Bowler and 2008 first round pick, has presumably gone from a starter to the third cornerback at best, prompting his trade request.
The Cowboys have said several times they have no interest in trading Jenkins. He has one year left on his contract and will make $1.052 million in 2012.
