The Dallas Cowboys hit the field this morning for the first time in 2014, at training camp in Oxnard, California.

Team will be here for most of the next 3 weeks getting ready for the 2014 season.  It has been 3 straight 8-8 3 seasons for the cowboys and each year missing out in the postseason by losing to a division rival in week 17.

Tight-end Jason Witten knows that the Cowboys have what it takes to make that happen, they just need to do it this season.

“We have to get to those games and play better,” Witten said. “We have to be better and look ourselves in the mirror and have that breakthrough and it takes a commitment and hopefully we will be better.”

A better season starts with building a solid foundation for the next few weeks at camp.

“Everybody is getting their feet and on Tuesday was an administrative day an orientation,” Head Coach Jason Garret said, “And we want to practice and everyone chomping at the bit but tony looked good the whole group did.”

The other big story as camp got under way, the return of quarterback Tony Romo, who missed the final game last year and had surgery to repair a herniated disk in his back. He sat out of competitive drills during the off season but will be a full participant during camp.

“He will be out starting and take all the team reps and we will monitor throws to be quality throws we will monitor to make sure we get him back,” Garrett said.

Jason Witten likes what he has seen so far from number nine.

“He looks good same zip lots of excitement he is ready to lead and I commend him for coming back from that injury.”
