IRVING, Texas -- The trucks the equipment staff packed last week have finally left Valley Ranch for San Antonio with the anticipation of training camp possibly beginning Thursday inside the Alamodome.
A source told ESPN Dallas' Calvin Watkins that, tentatively, physicals are scheduled for Wednesday and training camp will begin Thursday.
The trucks were scheduled to leave last Friday, but when the players did not take a vote on a new collective bargaining agreement proposal after the owners ratified it last Thursday, those plans were put on hold.
The 32 player representatives are expected to vote on the CBA this morning, which will kick off a flurry of activity from teams in re-signing their own free agents, adding undrafted players and signing draft picks perhaps as early as Tuesday.
The Cowboys’ first preseason game is scheduled for Aug. 11 vs. Denver at Cowboys Stadium, but sources have indicated the teams have discussed moving the game to Aug. 13. If that happens and the Cowboys open camp on Thursday, that would give them 15 days of practice, although the first three would be conducted without pads, according to the new CBA rules.
