The Dallas Cowboys wrapped up their offseason on Thursday with a final veteran mini-camp session and, despite being without quarterback Tony Romo, defensive end DeMarcus Ware or rookie running back Joseph Randle throughout OTAs and mini-camp, head coach Jason Garrett departs Valley Ranch with the belief that his team is ready for camp.
"I believe we are," Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. "I think we've had an outstanding offseason. You heard me say this a number of times. The attendance we've had in our offseason program was nearly 100 percent every day and certainly in the OTAs and minicamp and that's a reflection of the kind of commitment this football team has made.
"We've worked very hard. I think we've made progress. I think the younger players have improved in a very short period of time. The older players, the guys who have been here, are understanding some of the changes we've made that we think can benefit our football team and trying to understand what those changes are and get acclimated to them."
The Cowboys are set top open training camp on July 21 in Oxnard, CA.
