Like just about every other team in the NFL we’d imagine, the Dallas Cowboys are planning on getting together this offseason for a series of players-only workouts, in order to bridge the gap between the lockout and the 2011 season. Tony Romo is reportedly at the head of these workouts--which will include any players around the area--but few details beyond that are known.
Outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware recently told reporters that the offseason workouts haven’t begun yet, but that they will commence soon.
"No we haven’t yet," Ware said of the workouts, per ESPN Dallas. "I know eventually we’re going to have to get in the playbook and figure some things out among ourselves, and it will come soon."
The team’s “voluntary” offseason workout program would have begun several weeks ago, had it not been for the lockout, and it’s the structure, the unifying qualities of these workouts that the players will try to re-create in this peculiar offseason.
"That's what we’re trying to do," Ware continued. "We want to do everything right. Clear the lockout and get our defense and offense going and [build] team unity and get ready for the season."
