    Here’s a list of the starting positions I think are locked up before we go to training camp.

    Jerry and must just smile from ear to ear when they think about how set their is. Almost every starting position is set and they still have a couple of weeks before the team leaves for California for training camp. However, I seriously doubt those smiles are as big when they consider their starting defense. As a matter of fact, no smiles were to be found in the organization when went down during . Already with injuries this year, and coming off such an unspectacular performance last year, the Cowboys are just brimming with questions regarding defensive position battles.

    The offense has 10 of 11 starting positions in the base formation set. The same can’t be said for the defense, and it isn’t even close.

    Things being what they are right now, I’m going to say there are four starting spots locked up when the team lines up in its 4- 3 base defense. And that’s a generous number if you ask me.

    One perspective is that training camp and the are sure to be interesting with up to seven starting spots up for grabs. But here’s some good news about those open positions; a lot of talented players will be fighting for those jobs.
