Camp Contract With San Antonio Expires

SAN ANTONIO -With the conclusion of Wednesday's light practice, the Cowboys have fulfilled their five-year contract to hold training camp at the Alamodome.

The team has had discussions with the City of San Antonio about forging a new deal, but also has other options. They have held all or a portion of camp in Oxnard, Calif. in six of the last 10 years, and will call Cowboys Stadium their practice home for most of the next two weeks.

With its ample meeting space, air conditioned environment with seating for thousands of fans, the Alamodome has been a good venue for the Cowboys. The team counted more than 94,000 visitors to its practices this summer.

"We love it," Jason Garrett said. "It's a great place. The people of San Antonio have been great to us. This Alamodome is a really good setting for us to be able to practice in, and everybody treats us really well here. It's been a good experience for us."

The head coach couldn't say where camp would be held going forward.

"Don't want to address that right now," Garrett said. "We'll make those decisions collectively, and we'll talk about the pros and cons of each of the options."
