Cowboys Will Continue Training Camp in California in 2017

    A Dallas Cowboys helmet sits on the practice field at Cowboys Training Camp in Oxnard, California.

    The Cowboys have a near 40 year history of holding training camps in Southern California.

    Will it continue?

    It will in 2017, because the Cowboys and the city of Oxnard have a contract.

    I have wondered if the Rams would try to take over the Cowboys Oxnard training camp facility since they used it for their 2016 offseason OTA's and minicamp.

    The Rams will not come back to Oxnard because they have inked a deal to hold training camp in Irvine, California. Per the Los Angeles Times, the Rams will pay UC Irvine about $10 million to host the team’s training camp for three years, with an option for two more, according to a copy of the contract obtained under California’s Public Records Act.

    A Cowboys source told me that the Rams would not think of taking over Jerry's training camp site since he help the Rams owner relocate from St. Louis to Los Angeles.

    Last year, Jones told me that he wants to keep bringing his team to California for the first part of training camp. He said this knowing his new practice headquarters would be finished by that time his contract with the city Oxnard expired.
