    Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is hoping for the best and perhaps getting a labor deal in place in time for training camp and a full season.

    But the facts are that any hopes of having a true offseason program and regular organized team activities are over. With nothing being decided in court until June, the same can probably be said of any possible minicamps.

    Jones says Cowboys are taking it one day at a time but acknowledged they are looking at how to prepare for a season based on an lockout extended into training camp and possibly the start of the regular season.

    Jerry Jones says the Cowboys will have no layoffs due to the lockout


    "We, for all practical purposes, the Cowboys, are year-round for 99 percent of the employees that we have," Jones said. "And certainly we have an obligation to our stadium and the events that we’re involved in. When you look at the big picture, our operation and what we’re doing with our employees is more dictated by that than it is by the fact that we’re locked out. Our hiring will be influenced by the normal things that influence our hiring, the normal turnover that you might have in employment as well as what we might have as to the labor need that is there. And to some degree we have hired employees and we also replaced employees. We’re having a pretty normal offseason relative to our hiring."
