IRVING, Texas – The Cowboys have altered their offseason schedule this year by moving the rookie minicamp back a week.
Traditionally the Cowboys held the camp the weekend following the draft. This year they will have it May 10-12.
Instead of having the players come in for the camp and return home or to their college campuses for a few week and rejoin the full team for the offseason program later, the later start will allow the players to work right into the offseason program.
“It fell better (on the calendar) this year,” coach Jason Garrett said. “I’m not sure it’s always fallen that way, but it made sense to do it. It gives us and the guys to take a little bit of a breath and after the draft get reset.”
