Dallas Cowboys Training Camp Preview

IRVING, Texas (AP) - Here's a look at the Dallas Cowboys, who went 9-7 last season, then lost to Seattle in the first round of the playoffs:

OPEN CAMP: July 24, in San Antonio.

LAST YEAR: In final season under coach Bill Parcells, Cowboys found new quarterback in Tony Romo and went soaring into December. Then Dallas stumbled and blew chance at first postseason win in a decade when Romo botched hold of field goal against Seattle.

IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: Coach Wade Phillips, OL Leonard Davis, OLB Anthony Spencer, QB Brad Johnson, S Ken Hamlin.

IMPORTANT LOSSES: Parcells, QB Drew Bledsoe, RG Marco Rivera.

CAMP NEEDS: Phillips must show that just because he's a "player's coach" doesn't mean he's a softie. New offensive coordinator Jason Garrett must establish play-calling only three years after he was suiting up. And Romo must convince teammates he's QB who started out 5-1, not one who finished 1-4. Owner Jerry Jones will keep fingers crossed that Terrell Owens can be drama-free.

EXPECTATIONS: Phillips will add aggressiveness to defense Parcells rebuilt but didn't always trust. If Phillips can turn Roy Williams, DeMarcus Ware and top pick Anthony Spencer into sack-hungry, turnover-forcing playmakers, that would ease burden on Romo and Garrett. Dallas had one of league's top-scoring offenses last year. Fewer drops by T.O. would keep it cranked up.
