Until a deal is truly finalized, the t’s crossed the i’s dotted, training camp will remain seemingly far off. But in reality, we could see the Cowboys in pads and helmets as soon as this time next week.
According to multiple sources, the team is tentatively preparing to open training camp on July 28 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, this based on the assumption that a deal could get done by the end of the week. Had this labor dispute never happened, the Cowboys would have begun next Tuesday. And of course, this date could change again depending on what happens today.
"We won't be commenting on any details regarding training camp or preseason game logistics until there is a strong sense of conclusion to the CBA discussions," said Rich Dalrymple, Cowboys vice president of public relations, per the Dallas Morning News.
Many, including Atlanta Falcons’ owner Arthur Blank, are confident that a deal will get done today. If it does--or even if the talks move into Friday--we’ll finally have an solid idea of when we’ll see the Cowboys suit up again, after a season of frustrated waiting. And that’s a good thing.
