“We almost had 100 percent attendance throughout the offseason and 100 percent attendance through OTAs.” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. “You put a lot of information in front of these guys each day, and you see how they respond to it. This is the first day of installing your offense, your defense and your kicking game. Our guys responded well to it. We’ll have a chance to look at it in minicamp next week.”
The Cowboys have a number of players, including Tony Romo and DeMarcus Ware, who did not participate in the team drills in the organized team activities and will sit out the minicamp too. Ware is recovering from off-season shoulder surgery, while Romo had a cyst removed from his back.
"We've had a number of guys coming off surgery in the offseason," Garrett said. "We're very cautious with those players. We ask them to do what they can do."
