Cowboys Training Camp Could Begin July 28

A report on ESPN DFW by Todd Archer Wednesday says that the Cowboys expect to open their training camp on July 28.

If everything goes as planned with the collective bargaining agreement between the NFL and players over the next few days, the Cowboys will hold their first training camp practice July 28 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, according to multiple sources.

This gives the Cowboys just 6-7 days to prepare to have all of their players, equipment and staff in San Antonio, ready to go in time for their slightly abbreviated camp.

As Archer notes, this is the last year of the Cowboys' contract with San Antonio, but they do not have a tour of America planned, as they did in 2010.

There could be a few scheduling bumps as a result of the new start date, most notably one rescheduled preseason game.

According to sources, the Cowboys and Denver have looked into moving the Aug. 11 preseason opener at Cowboys Stadium to Aug. 13. If that happens the Cowboys could have 15 days of practice inside the Alamodome before returning to Valley Ranch.
