Cowboys hit the field for the 1st time

Oxnard, CA (KLTV) - With a new season, brings new hope.

The last time the Cowboys were on the field, they were blown off it by the Giants, ending the season and their playoff hopes.

The Cowboys, one of the last two teams in the NFL to open training camp this year.

As promised, Dez Bryant  was on the field today, although he was made unavailable to th emedia.

Dez and the guys had a short walkthrough this morning followed by practice without pads this afternoon. 

With no hitting until Wednesday and these cool So-Cal temps, this training camp, well, doesn't really feel like training camp.

"it's great! what is it 60-70, 73 right now?" said defensive end DeMarcus Ware. "I don't know what the degrees is but it's a great way to come out. I'm barely even sweating."

"You know times change, we were in two-a-days everyday full pads for a long time down there in Austin. It was hot down there everyday." said head coach Jason Garrett. "That was just the nature at the time and the nature of our football team. Believe it or not, we're trying to create the same kind of environment within the rules that the nfl has for us in this day in age."

"You know, we're focused in the meetings; we're focused in the walkthrough. I think we can get a lot out of these walkthrough if you really practice your technique and your eyes and the feet." said linebacker Sean Lee. "If you work on it, you can get just as much out of it." 

The Cowboys are already showing great faith in Morris Claiborne. 

The rookie first-round pick is already running with the first-team defense.

Our coverage of Cowboys camp continues tonight and all the way through the end of camp on August 17th.

    It's been Pro Day after Pro Day across the country the past two weeks, and today it was Stephen F. Austin's turn to put their crop of eligible athletes in front of NFL scouts.  "I was really proud of all the guys. I thought we had some excellent work on the bench press, Anthony Pullins knocked it out of the gym. We had some guys really jump well, run well, and then of course catch and throw well. I was real pleased and I think the five or six organizations that were here le...

    I think its safe to say Jameis Winston likes to hang out with East Texas talent. The Tampa Bay quarterback was in Lufkin Wednesday night with former teammate Jorvorskie Lane to help the former Lufkin star talk with kids and support his "Lane of Hope" foundation. But, earlier Wednesday, a picture surfaced on social media of Winston working out with Adrian Peterson in Houston at a training facility.
