Cowboys Camp Returns to Oxnard



    Dallas Cowboys training camp is heading west again.

    Training camp will move from the San Antonio's Alamodome back to Oxnard, Calif., for 2012 through 2014 the Cowboys announced Thursday.

    The Cowboys left Oxnard after the 2006 camp.

    Dallas signed a five-year deal with the city of San Antonio before the 2007 season but returned to Oxnard in 2008, due to a scheduling conflict with the Alamodome.

    "The reason we left Oxnard in the first place was they were going to develop that property, and there wasn't going to be a spot anymore," Jones said in March 2010. "But the economy went the other way and so now the property is still there, and we've always enjoyed our experience out there. … I think it will spice things up, getting outside in that cool, fresh air. Obviously, we're not at a point to announce [the deal], but we're fired up about it."

    Camp traditionally starts in mid-July, unless there's a lockout, and we don't have to worry about that in 2012.
