It's currently one of the slowest times in the off season, as we drudge through May while looking ahead to the ' later on this summer. The great world of Twitter is helping get through this downtime with plenty of great -and at times not so great – Cowboys content.

With that, let's jump right in to this week's best of the best.

The Cowboys had their home run derby to raise money for the Salvation Army on Tuesday, and above are some of the best tweets from the event. While 's Cowboys news is always on point, we may need him to find an additional source to confirm that is actually swinging a baseball bat in that first and not a toothpick.

Meanwhile, took his swings and looked pretty good, but didn't quite reach the 409 sign in field that played in front of.

Speaking of Zeke Elliott, the rookie running back was one of four Dallas rookies to sign their first contract with the team on Wednesday. Elliott certainly looked good doing so as well –

With a large contract now in place along with Ezekiel's large expectations, his former ' QB Cardale Jones picked a good time to bring up an apparent debt that Elliott still owes him.

The unfortunate news surfaced last night that Ramsey suffered an that could set him back for some time:

If you're like me, you supported Jalen Ramsey throughout his draft process and wanted to see the ultra-talented have the best career possible as a Jaguar. Hopefully this injury is something that will not hold him back from still achieving this goal, as the Florida State product is now the second straight first-round pick for the Jaguars to be injured before the season began.
