    Not much is known about the Dallas Cowboys’ player-organized practice sessions that begun earlier this month at an undisclosed location around the Metroplex under the leadership of, among others, starting quarterback Tony Romo. But according to Romo’s count, the attendance has been encouraging.

    "We said in the beginning, when we did this, that we wanted to get an edge in the offseason," Witten said. "It's an opportunity for us, as leaders, to take our team to another level. ...

    "We go in and go work, and we get better."
