As Roger Goodell put it on Monday, football is back. It's officially back for the Dallas Cowboys as members of the team and staff reported to San Antonio on Wednesday as the Cowboys get their 2011 training camp underway.
Head coach Jason Garrett, entering his first full season as a head coach in the NFL, is set to hold a press conference on Wednesday afternoon - tentatively scheduled for 3 p.m. You can watch the press conference on Dallas' official website here.
It's certainly a relief for fans to see the Cowboys opening training camp, just knowing that football is officially back for the next decade. Still, this training camp is going to be crucial for Garrett and the Cowboys. Not only does the regular season begin in just over 40 days, but the entire offseason is occurring in a week with players being released along with free agents and draft picks being signed.
So far, the notable releases for the Cowboys prior to camp beginning include Marion Barber, Roy Williams and Leonard Davis. Marc Colombo could very well end up released if he doesn't agree to restructure his contract.
The Cowboys will hold their first practice and walkthrough on Thursday.
