As part of the new collective bargaining agreement, teams are required to give players a full day off each week during training camp. Always the old school head coach, Jason Garrett probably doesn’t like the idea all that much--but he wouldn’t say as much on Monday, the team’s final day of practice before taking a break today.
“It’s not my job to evaluate whether it’s good or bad,” Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. “It’s my job to interpret it the best I can and make it work for our team. We feel good about the schedule we’re working under here in training camp.”
According to just about every account we’ve seen or heard, the Cowboys have had a productive first week of camp. And though we’re fairly certain that Garrett wouldn’t have given the team a day off if it were left up to him, the Cowboys’ newest head coach did his best on Monday to tiptoe around the issue without any complaint.
“The biggest thing we have to do as coaches,” Garrett said grinning, “is understand what the rules and regulations are."
