Cowboys Considering Holding Training Camp In Texas

The Cowboys confirmed they are making preparations to hold training camp at their Frisco, Texas, headquarters. However, this is only if they cannot do so at their usual camp home (Oxnard, Calif.).

This previously rumored scenario may be necessary if California does not give the go-ahead for training camps to be held in the state. The Cowboys have conducted 14 training camps in Oxnard, but the COVID-19 pandemic has removed certainty they will be allowed to conduct a 15th in the southern California city. Texas will allow pro sports to resume starting May 31.

As a staff, we’re planning for a full training camp, and we’re also planning for a training camp in Oxnard; we’re planning for a training camp in Frisco,” Mike McCarthy said, via Pro Football Talk’s Charean Williams. “We spent an enormous amount of time in the planning phase because it is our first camp together. So we’re just trying to be ready for when the NFL and those big decisions are made that we’re not running around trying to adhere to a different schedule.”

The 49ers have considered moving their training camp out of California as well, and the Chargers and Rams almost certainly have done so. With both New Jersey and New York announcing that training camps will be permitted — and Pennsylvania following suit Wednesday — momentum appears to be building for teams to be able to begin camps on time at their preferred location. California has yet to make such a proclamation, and the Cowboys are progressing on their contingency plan.

    Rescind the franchise tag on Dak Prescott and use that $30MM to sign a bunch of veterans for Andy Dalton and the Cowboys.

      This roster is already pretty damn good. Maybe get Clowney or trade for Jamal Adams instead of paying Dak.

      Dalton isn’t half the QB that Prescott is. Dumb idea that would become even dumber by signing someone like Clowney.

      • Ak185

        Prescott is good, but to say that Dalton is not half the QB he is or that Clowney is not useful is just reactionary.

    Why would either of you even think that? All JJ has to do is offer 35mil for 4yes. He wants to have an opportunity for another contract at 30. At 31 teams say your on the wrong side of 30 for big contracts.

    There was a pretty good King of the Hill episode about the Cowboys moving training camp locations.

    Why wouldn’t the Cowboys train in their billion dollar facility anyways?

  5. Is the pandemic to blame for the Cowboys, 49ers, Rams and Chargers needing to be relocated or is it something else?

      Yeah, it’s a Deep State conspiracy …

      When reality doesn’t excite, let’s come up with some crazy counter story.

      Yes the plandemic is the reason these teams have to look elsewhere for camp…California still has some covid19 restrictions that would prohibit training camps
