IRVING, Texas --The next phase of the Cowboys' offseason will begin May 22 with the first Organized Team Activities at Valley Ranch.
Under the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, the number of OTA's have been reduced to 10 over a three-week period. The Cowboys will work out May 22-24, May 29-31 and June 4-7.
The club just completed its three-day minicamp for rookies and eligible first-year veterans. The veteran minicamp -- the only mandatory minicamp permitted per team -- is scheduled for June 12-14. All workouts are closed to the public, and media access will vary.
After that, the next big date is the start of training camp at the end of July in Oxnard, Calif., running through mid-August.
