Tweet Break: Focusing on the Positives as the Cowboys hit Oxnard

    What a week it has been for the , as they touched down in , California for their 2016 yesterday, looking to bring their team back into a positive light. , and most recently , have made this task more difficult than needed – but not here on !

    In this week's edition here on Inside , I've decided to spotlight the hard working players that are ready to prepare in the intense summer heat for a successful 2016 campaign.

    Perhaps no player at Cowboys' training camp will face more of an uphill battle than Rico Gathers, who will simply be trying to reacquaint himself with the game of football after being drafted by Dallas out of Baylor University as a basketball player.

    Gathers is looking forward to facing this challenge by working with a future in , but his roster spot will be challenged heavily by the likes of , , and .


    While it is not directly related to training camp preparations, is certainly in store to have a big summer, and it was awesome to see him hanging out with and at Valley Ranch.

    Of course, the Cowboys' Valley Ranch facilities won't play a role in this year's training camp, as the team will be ready to move into The Star once returning home from California. Brad Sham, the radio play-by-play voice of the Dallas Cowboys, shares one of the closing images from the iconic facility in his above tweet.


    Speaking of Dez Bryant, the fiery is ready to prove that he means a lot more to his team outside of and the . Elevating the play of others around you is truly a mark of a great player, and an expectation that Morris Claiborne will have for Bryant.

    If this match up plays out, it should be a fascinating one, as Claiborne will be looking to build off of his 2015 success – which earned him a new one year contract with the Cowboys in 2016.



    When it comes to differing personalities found on the Cowboys' roster, you may not find a better example then and . The always outspoken and energetic Whitehead took to Twitter to share his excitement for camp following his conditioning test, as did Ryan Russell, who is certainly an unknown player in the eyes of many fans and coaches.

    Both players will be called upon to potentially fill big roles throughout training camp and into the regular season, as Whitehead will likely serve as the team's primary kick and , and Russell will be looking to make the team feel a little better about the overall situation at defensive end.


    To conclude this edition of Tweet Break, I wanted to include this impressive tweet from Byron Jones. Not only will Jones be a player to watch closely at this summer, but his tweet here shows the poise of a veteran for just a second year player.

    Staff Writer RJ Ochoa wrote recently about the Cowboys failures when it comes to drafting players in the second round, Randy Gregory being one such example. At least Byron Jones, the team's pick in 2015, can make Cowboys Nation feel good about some of our young defensive talent.
