The Dallas Cowboys gathered for their first mandatory workouts of the season on Tuesday and will be in camp until Thursday.
Jason Garrett said not much has changed for the team, considering the OTA sessions were well attended this offseason.
It is, however, the beginning of the end of sorts. After minicamp, the Cowboys will roll into training camp at the end of July for their final preseason preparations for what is hoped to be a Super Bowl run.
“Any player, coach or staff member who is involved in the NFL wants to be on that platform the first week of February down there in Miami, holding the Super Bowl trophy over their head,” Garrett told reporters on Tuesday. “If you don’t have that goal, you shouldn’t be doing what we’re doing.”
Dallas Cowboys Training Camp Dates
After minicamp, the team has a long break before meeting up again on July 27 for training camp, which will be held in Oxnard, Calif.
Admission is free to see the Cowboys in training camp and most practices are open to the public.

Dallas Cowboys Preseason Games and Trip To Hawaii
The Cowboys have an interesting lead up to the season, with camp being held a few states away and a preseason content in Hawaii.

Here’s the Cowboys full preseason slate:
