Dallas Cowboys Offseason 2012: Minicamp Begins Tuesday

The Dallas Cowboys make the transition from organized team activities to mandatory offseason minicamp Tuesday. Most of the Cowboys players made it to Valley Ranch Monday to take physicals and pictures and videos for the media guide and video board at Cowboys Stadium.

Cornerback Mike Jenkins showed up to Valley Ranch, despite not being at organized team activities and attempting to rehab from shoulder surgery. Jenkins has spent most of his offseason rehabbing the shoulder in Florida, while the Cowboys have seemingly been busy replacing him.

Of course there was the signing of Brandon Carr earlier in the offseason to a five-year, $50.1 million deal and the selection of Morris Claiborne with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2012 draft.

It will be interesting to see how all of this works out as the season approaches, but Jenkins will not be practicing in minicamp. Jones and Garrett have said there are no plans to trade Jenkins and defensive coordinator Rob Ryan said last week Jenkins will likely compete with Orlando Scandrick for reps as the slot corner in the nickel defense, according to Cowboys beat writer Nick Eatman.
