Five wonders as the Dallas Cowboys head into June
Here are five wonders to think about as the Dallas Cowboys head into June football and minicamps.
The Dallas Cowboys are taking the OTAs serious. It’s the beginning stages of a football season, but in a lot of ways, it’s a small step for a 4-12 squad to erase what happened last year.
With the month of June just one day away, the Cowboys are looking to complete the OTA scheduled workouts by the eight of June. Then, of course, it is on to a mandatory mini-camp scheduled for June 14-16 at sunny Oxnard, CA.
That said, here are five burning things that I still wonder about as the Cowboys make their way over to the Golden State.
• I wonder if Orlando Scandrick, who turned 29 last February, will heal well enough to be the same player he once was.
The cornerback missed the entire 2015 campaign after tearing two ligaments in his right knee last August.
The 2008 fifth rounder is heading into his ninth season in the league. He’s at the age where corners decline.
Can the corner who was the most dominant Cowboys defensive back in 2014, where he was named the team defensive MVP, return to his former self in 2016?
The Cowboys added talent on the offense, hoping that will plug holes in the defense. But I think a big void will be filled if number 32 returns to form. His injury was listed as a 12 month process, which makes me wonder if he can reach the right health condition to play 16 games after missing an entire NFL season.
