Receivers coming together in Cowboys training camp

Sports

Training camp rolls on for the Dallas Cowboys today over in California.

The receiving corps is one of the biggest question marks on the offensive side of the ball this season.

Dez Bryant and Jason Witten are gone, that leaves Cole Beasley and Terrance Williams as the only experienced guys out there.

That makes this training camp important so the new faces can get in some work, and the group can get used to each other.

“There’s no question they’re working hard, and they’re trying to understand what we’re asking them to do. We’ve always prided ourselves on trying to be precise on our route running, be precise in our passing game, you always make that emphasis,” Jason Garrett said. 

“We do have some new guys, some veteran players and some young guys you try to reinforce that with. There’s so many different parts to the passing game, starting with protection then quarterback play, then certainly on the other end of it, with everybody running the right routes at the right depth, running the right angles, the timing right, all of that, those are all things we’re trying to emphasize, and I think our guys have picked it up well.”

Kind of a funny sight at training camp on Tuesday night, rookie guard Connor Williams was carrying five teammates helmets at the end of practice. He is having a good camp but not so good that he doesn’t have to perform rookie duties.

And more news from today’s walk through, the Cowboys activated Randy Gregory so he could take part in this morning’s walk through. The team says they are going to be deliberate with him.
