Ryan Tannehill, Dolphins to visit Aug. 29
The first preseason game is Aug. 13 and the Cowboys veterans are projected to report to training camp in Oxnard, Calif., on July 29. Under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement signed last year, rookies and quarterbacks can report a few days prior to July 29. That projected date is July 24. All of this is unofficial.
The Cowboys could leave Oxnard either Aug. 22 or 23 before facing St. Louis in their first home preseason game on Aug. 25.
After hosting first-round draft pick Ryan Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins in the preseason finale Aug. 29, the Cowboys will have six days off before the season opener at the New York Giants. Coach Jason Garrett expressed an interest in having at least a week off prior to the regular-season opener. Looks like he's got it.
The great thing from a Dallas perspective about opening the season on a Wednesday night is the Cowboys will have 10 days off between Weeks 1 and 2.
