IRVING (AP) – The Dallas Cowboys are working to complete a deal to return their training camp to Oxnard, Calif.
Cowboys chief operating officer Stephen Jones said Thursday that the team looks forward to going back to California next year. The new deal would be for at least three years.
The Cowboys have trained in Oxnard five times, the last in 2010 when they split camp between Oxnard and San Antonio. Camp this year was in San Antonio.
Dallas’ training camp has been in Oxnard or San Antonio since 2001.
Jones says the Cowboys are exploring ways to have a continued presence in San Antonio. He didn’t say how.
New Orleans spent a week in Oxnard for camp in August. Saints coach Sean Payton is a former Cowboys assistant.
