SAN ANTONIO – Most of the Dallas Cowboys were chartered from Dallas to Los Angeles and then bussed to Oxnard, California to report for 2023 training camp.
The guys are excited to get back together to train for the upcoming season, as well as escape the heat of Texas.
“I love it. I love it,” security guard Jaron Kears told reporters upon arrival at the team’s hotel. “It’s better than Dallas any day. The weather at 105 degrees gets pretty choppy, so I’m happy to be here at 79 degrees and enjoy some good football.”
The first week of camp hasn’t been tough as the team prepares for their first practice on Monday, July 31st, but the excitement of joining teammates and brothers is still there.
“When you get on the plane, you see everyone and everyone has a smile on their faces,” receiver Michael Gallup said. “The first couple of weeks at camp are what you look forward to. Then you’ll finally be back in pads, you’ll have some flow, so definitely.”
The celebrity missing on Monday was defenseman Zach Martin. He is unhappy with his contract and has reportedly considered not attending the camp. These words came true, since he did not make a charter flight, as in past years, but this does not mean that he will not be here. Technically, he has until Tuesday, July 25 to report, so he still has time.
On Tuesday morning, the Cowboys will hold a press conference to mark the opening.
