Cowboys Go Camping In A Week

By  | 

IRVING, Texas (AP) - Even Terrell Owens will find it hard to
draw top billing at this year's Dallas Cowboys summer training
There are so many other sideshows to gawk at when the Cowboys
open camp in Oxnard, California, next Friday. As Owens has so
eloquently put it before, "Getcha popcorn ready!" It's going to
be a show.
There will be plenty to see with the Cowboys, whose bitter
ending to a 13-win season in January made it 11 seasons without a
playoff victory.
First, there is the player who wants to be formerly known as
"Pacman" and doesn't know for sure if he'll be allowed to play
this season.
How about the Tank - Johnson, that is - that Dallas got to roll
out only half of last season after the nose tackle returned from
his NFL suspension.
Roy Williams went to his fifth straight Pro Bowl last season,
even though the hard-hitting safety often went to the sideline on
passing downs. And that could happen again, especially if the Adam
Jones formerly known as "Pacman" is playing.
Offensive coordinator Jason Garrett is more firmly in place as
the supposed successor-in-waiting for coach Wade Phillips - who in
his only season in charge so far led Dallas to its first NFC East
title since 1998.
Plus, who knows, maybe Jessica Simpson stops by to see her beau,
Pro Bowl quarterback Tony Romo.
With all that and more when the Cowboys open camp Friday in
Oxnard, Calif., not too far from Hollywood, they have the
ingredients for a made-for-TV show.
Oh, Jerry Jones took care of that. Never missing a chance to
promote the Cowboys brand, Jones enthusiastically agreed when HBO
executives wanted to again feature the team in the "Hard Knocks"
