As we kick off the weekend, let’s take a look at some of the latest Dallas Cowboys news and headlines circulating on Cowboys Nation.

Boot camp is just a few weeks away!

The Dallas Cowboys will arrive in Oxnard, California in just over two weeks for the start of training camp.

This year, Dallas will rely on a lot of young, unproven players to step up and fill holes on the roster, but there are several players ready to step up and prove they’re the right fit for the job.

Blogging the Boys took a look at some of the players who could become standouts in training camp, featuring a handful of rookies, a former standout in training camp from his rookie season, and a former top-three pick.

There are some weak areas on the Cowboys’ roster, but one weakness stands out more than the rest: defensive tackle.

Dallas’ interior defensive line is a big unknown heading into the 2024 season, and training camp will tell us a lot about what to expect. Mazi Smith is expected to have a breakout year after a disappointing rookie season, but can he really be trusted?

The Cowboys have a nice third-tech starter in Osa Odighizuwa, but their first-tech spot will need someone to step up. Will it be Smith? Could it be seventh-round pick Justin Rogers? How about undrafted free agent Denzel Daxon? Only time will tell, but someone has to take over the job.
