Sanjay Lal helped Tavon Austin have his best training camp ever

Sanjay Lal helped Tavon Austin have his best training camp ever

Sanjay for MVP. It’s not hard to find a Dallas Cowboys wide receiver raving about Sanjay Lal. Lal has come in and immediately made a gigantic impact. If you don’t believe me just know that Terrance Williams has been balling out and catching with his hands through Lal’s first training camp with the Cowboys. Yes, that’s right.

Buffalo Bills castoff Deonte Thompson has had a great camp (when he was healthy enough to participate), Allen Hurns is playing well, and former Los Angeles Rams utility...

Here are some highlights:Question: Are Cowboys fans overrating Rico Gathers?Tim Cowlishaw: I think the handful that ask about him all the time are. I imagine most fans have figured out, from comments all around, that Gathers hasn't totally picked up the tight end position and that being a basketball player built like a football player only...

Cowboys 2018 training camp: Why preseason narratives are often the wrong thing to focus on

History suggest that what happens preseason doesn’t always line up with happens during the season. The Cowboys training camp in Oxnard, California has come to an end and we’re now just over three weeks from Dallas playing real NFL football. And like every previous preseason we’ve seen a few narratives emerge. Parsing through the various media reports provides these primary 2018 narratives: Jaylon Smith is vastly improved over what he was in 2017 and looks like the college linebacking beast we saw at Notre Dame. Tavon Austin is going to be a multi-purpose weapon that threatens...
