Training camp really starts when the Cowboys put the pads on.
So far so good for the Dallas Cowboys in Oxnard, California at training camp. The unpadded portion of practice has gone off without a hitch, but we all know training camp doesn’t officially start until the pads come on, something Neville Gallimore mentioned just yesterday.

Now that we are entering the portion of training camp where players will be in pads the intensity and competition level should raise significantly. Whether it’s the starters preparing themselves for the upcoming season or players fighting for a roster spot, things are about to get a lot more physical and probably a little more emotional as well from here on out.
