Cowboys to hold training camp in Frisco in 2020

With the COVID-19 pandemic still affecting league matters, Dallas will hold the 2020 training camp at The Star in Frisco. Unable to make the usual trip to Oxnard in California, the Cowboys will instead spend the summer sweltering in the Texas summer heat.

With Mike McCarthy and his staff finally able to set foot int eh building from today, it’s finally time to begin those preparations for training camp in earnest. Hopefully high on the agenda will be getting quarterback Dak Prescott signed to a long term deal.

Training camp in Frisco is gonna be fun

And don’t be thinking this puts the Cowboys at a disadvantage. The Star is a fully-equipped 510,00- square foot facility with indoor and outdoor training. Costing $1.5 billion it opened in 2016 and has been the team’s primary in-season training facility since.

While it may not be the way the Cowboys had originally planned their preseason it could work out for the best for the new staff. Able to acclimatize themselves in their home building and really bed in and get a feel for how the Cowboys do business, this staff could be more likely to hit the ground running.

With over half of teams staff not attending their facilities despite the league allowing them to, Mike McCarthy was on hand to get down to the important business. And make no mistake, this is a huge season for the Cowboys.

Already up against the bumper of the salary cap, they need to make sure they fill out the defensive side of the roster to fit the schemes of the new coaches. Already going bigger on the line with the additions of Dontari Poe and Gerald McCoy, the Boys will be hoping newly reinstated Aldon Smith, and hopefully soon to be reinstated Randy Gregory will make impacts of the edge.

With rookies like CeeDee Lamb and Trevon Diggs looking to come in and take over from high-performing veterans in Byron Jones and Randal Cobb, the Cowboys have a lot of questions on the training camp horizon.

The good news is that football is finally getting back to some kind of normal. Barring a second wave of cases it seems that football season is just a few long months away. And with facilities opening, and coaches arriving, preparations are well underway for a return to business.
