DALLAS COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

NFL teams wrapped up their three-day mandatory minicamp session on Thursday, including the Cowboys. Now players will have a few weeks off before reporting to training camp.

Despite coming off a 13-win season, Dallas made sure to its offseason ended with a spirited practice. Veteran tight end Jason Witten and safety Byron Jones got into a brief shoving match during team drills.
