Jason Garrett: Cowboys camp as competitive as any he's been around, says they still have work to do

The Dallas Cowboys broke training camp in Oxnard, Calif. Friday morning after five weeks of work that coach Jason Garrett called as competitive a camp as he's been around.

 “The messages don’t change a whole lot,” Garrett said. “It’s the same kind of message about trying to be your best and working hard each and every day. I thought we had a really good camp. Guys came in in shape, ready to go, worked hard. I thought it was very competitive, as competitive a training camp as I’ve been around. Really a tribute to the players and the approach they’ve taken. We try to put them in those situations, but they have to respond to those situations.”

Garrett's message to the team following camp is to continue work and bring that same attitude back when the return to practice in Dallas on Monday following Saturday's preseason game against the Cardinals.

Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant was also excited about the work the team did in camp and received Garrett's message of continuing to work loud and clear.

"I think our intensity level since Day 1 was sky-high, and we came out and performed the best of our ability," Bryant said. "We're very excited about the hard work we've put in, and we're looking ft forward to going out and expressing our skills. (Garrett's message was) Don't have that leaving-training-camp mentality. We've still got work to do. I think for the most part everybody knows that. I think that was great of him, sharing, still letting us know that. And by him letting us know that, how serious he is, and just make more guys stay on top of their game."
