Garrett Says the Cowboys Staying Ready

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett says that the team, despite the on-going lockout that seems to be dragging on forever, will be ready to rock and roll once things can get started again in the NFL.

The ongoing NFL lockout has prevented that type of official activity, in addition to the voluntary strength and conditioning program with new coach Mike Woicik. Coaches can’t contact players, even their new ones, and the lockout has delayed the signing of undrafted rookies as well as the free agent/trading period.

But there are things the team is doing to keep ready.

“I don’t think you get bored,” Garrett said Monday, “because there are a lot of things to do. You can do some of the things you typically do maybe a little bit better because you have a little bit of extra time. But at the same time, we’re all excited to get our players back and get going.

“What we have been trying to do as coaches is try to get everything ready for them when they do come back. It starts with putting structure together for the offseason, for training camp, and then we have to be able to adjust that structure once we find out what the rules are. So we are still in a little bit of a holding pattern. But we are trying to get some stuff cleaned up from last year and get stuff ready for this year and go forward when the players come back.”
