Tweet Break: Cowboys Football Things are Happening!

    , today is the first Friday of August! What does that mean exactly? Well, as you know July is over and..every Friday here on I share the best tweets from around the world that involve ! AUGUST FOOTBALL THINGS!

    With this being the first August edition of this weekly roundup, it means that we are in for a marathon to the finish! We've finally made it. Each and every day our timelines are being graced by Cowboys news and updates coming out of for training camp.

    Here are some things that stood out. ✭

    Easing into camp? Not so fast, Rico!

    We mentioned ' excitement for what was ahead of him in last week's edition of Tweet Break, but perhaps that mood changed slightly after the Baylor basketball star turned Dallas Cowboys rookie went through this Coach Pope drill.

    Doing his best to make this roster as a , backfield blocker, or whatever else the team may need (outside of a power forward at perhaps?), Gathers' was slapped with the responsibility of coordinating taking this mask on and off while catching a pass.

    Welcome to the league, rookie!

    Zeke Watch

    Another rookie that the Dallas Cowboys have at training camp is this out of Ohio State named – you probably haven't heard much about him though.

    Well, the team's fourth overall pick had been making great progress slowly getting himself acquainted to the offense, but apparently hasn't been working his vocal cords much.

    On a more serious note, Elliott's hamstrings were bothering him enough on Tuesday to be pulled out of practice, and as of yesterday we know that he will “miss some time”.

    The Cowboys Offensive Line – Really good at Football

    Often times, the Cowboys' is talked about in it's entirety as the “Great Wall of Dallas” or the “Space Cowboys”. However, when an individual players gets some attention nationally, it's typically Tyron Smith.

    A game changer at left , Smith is ready to once again do his part in helping an offense that should put up some big numbers with back running the show.

    Cowboys Nation, defensive coordinators everywhere, and common sense, can all agree with this PFF grade.

    Dez Bryant – Also Really Good at Football

    Dez Bryant is the best WR on the Dallas Cowboys, the best WR in the East, and one of the best in the NFL. However, #88 has not been himself in a long time, thanks to that wiped away his 2015 season. Naturally, in his return to dominance, Bryant has faced some struggles at training camp thus far.

    Instead of looking at these struggles as a potential positive, as the Cowboys' emotional leader can inspire others with his work ethic, national headlines have tried to paint a picture of Dez struggling and regressing to some sort of mean that has always been a #1 target.

    Well, ESPN, listen up – Dez Bryant will happily prove any doubters wrong this season, so let's all calm down and watch him complete a pass to Bennett Broaddus. Cool.

    Kicking it Cool

    Dan Bailey can expect to kick a lot of footballs this season, and hopefully his cleats will hold up. As you see here, the has used the same cleats since 2011.

    From that point, Bailey has converted on 90.6% of his field goals. Don't ever change those cleats, Dan.

    Let's hope that, with gone, most of Bailey's kicks are extra points and kickoffs – and that these cleats can get a fighting chance to last through another NFL season.

    Final News & Notes

    As the Cowboys enter what will be a game week (yeah, the Cowboys play a game at the end of next week!), here is the latest from Twitter on what we know about some of their ongoing situations.

    Particularly, the that has sent the Dallas into a scramble to find a veteran backup has been a well-discussed topic in the Twitterverse.

    The Cowboys seem content on letting the QB2 market settle a bit after watching sign with the , and inquiring to the Browns about Josh McCown only to receive a steep asking price. While some other attractive options still exist, the team will push forward with young guns Dak Prescott and getting all of the reps.

    That will do it for another edition of here on Inside The Star! To make sure that the best tweets that you find about the Dallas Cowboys get included here each week, just tag me in them @ShoreSportsNJ, or email suggestions to
