Jones veers toward splitting camp sites

GRAPEVINE, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said his team is feeling good about the chances of splitting training camp between San Antonio and Oxnard, Calif.

The Cowboys' Hall of Fame game on Aug. 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals allows them to open training camp earlier, which gives them the flexibility to hold camp in two cities.

Jones said the plan would be to start camp in San Antonio and then finish it in Oxnard.

The Cowboys have recently held training camp San Antonio in 2007 and 2009. A scheduling conflict with the Alamodome forced the Cowboys to hold camp in Oxnard in 2008. The city of San Antonio has two years remaining on a five-year deal with the Cowboys to host camp at the Alamodome.

"I'm very positive about it," Jones said on Tuesday, adding that he's working on logistics. "It's got a good chance of happening."
