ARLINGTON, TX - DECEMBER 15: Quarterback Tony Romo #9 of the Dallas Cowboys reacts against the Green Bay Packers during a game at AT&T Stadium on December 15, 2013 in Arlington, Texas.
Tony Romo, back in the huddle.
Scott Linehan and Rod Marinelli, on the field coordinating.
That was the scene at Valley Ranch on Monday and every day for the next couple weeks as Phase 2 of the Cowboys’ off-season program commences.
In the two-week Phase 1, only strength and conditioning coaches were allowed on the field. But as we ramp up to Organized Team Activities on May 26, now the full coaching staff can accompany and supervise players.
Although the sessions are for individual instructions and void of offense vs. defense drills, it’s beginning to look a little more like football at Valley Ranch.
And by next weekend the Cowboys – via the draft - will have new faces to put in new places.
