The Dallas Cowboys left Frisco Monday for their home away from home, Oxnard, California. With no traditional training camp last year due to COVID-19, the Cowboys were forced to hold camp at the Star in Frisco, with no fans. As a result, this camp will be the first traditional Cowboys camp for second-year coach Mike McCarthy. His team dealt with many injuries on defense and a rotating door at quarterback last year, finishing the year 6-10 and in third place of the NFC East.
