Garrett Staying Busy During Lockout



    One would imagine the NFL lockout has left Cowboys’ head coach Jason Garrett with a good deal of extra time on his hands.

    Entering his first full season as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, Garrett is prohibited from contact with his players and left to wonder, like the rest of us, when the lockout might come to an end. But that doesn’t mean that Garrett is sitting around, anxiously twiddling his thumbs.

    Garrett told reporters at the 2011 Pat Summerall Humble Beginnings Luncheon--a charity event benefitting the Austin Streete Centre, at which Garrett was honored--that he remains at Valley Ranch, preparing for training camp and the 2011 season, even as the lockout, which enters its 64th day today, threatens to cancel part of, if not both.

    "I don't think you get bored, because there are a lot of things to do," Garrett said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "You can do some of the things you typically do maybe a little bit better, because you have a little bit extra time. But at the same time, we're all excited to get our players back and get going."
