    Here's what I have right now. Some of these will appear on DallasCowboys.com later tonight, so thanks to them for allowing me to take these shots.

    As for the morning practice, I'll post a more detailed summary later tonight when I get back in SA (around 10 CT).

    The highlights were that Vinny threw two picks (one to Newman where he broke on the ball, the other to Dat Nguyen after it got tipped by Singleton). Hunter broke up two passes, one of which can be seen in the picture below on a pass thrown to Antonio. Bryant probably should have made the catch, but Hunter did a nice job.

    Roy ain't 240 like a lot of people have been saying. If anything he looks thinner.

    Dat looks like he's really hit the weight room. I thought RW would be a little more cut up after reading reports he's been working out.

    Looks like linemen are required to wear the knee braces throughout camp.

    Nice photos.

    He's always looked like a Landry Tackle...if that makes any sense.

    And now it's clear why Tuna has mentioned several times AL Johnson lost a lot during his recovery and needs to put some back on. Gotta build back up that upper body, it seems. He looks smaller than Matt right now.

    Cason looks freakin great.

    Great job, Dale.

    It does. Vollers is more lanky than beefy.

    The only thing about Cason is it seems all the added weight is in the chest area. His legs don't look much bigger at all. This is where he's built differently from a guy like Julius. Sure, Julius' chest is huge, but so are his thighs -- much like Emmitt's. Even with the added weight, I'm not convinced Cason has the build to be an everydown-type back.

    Has Carter put on any weight? I think that was one of the to do's Bill asked of him. How is his form - any improvements year over year?

    Vinnie two ints? How did Romo fare today?

    Tier 2 CB's - how is the kid from Rutgers faring?

    Yeah, if anything, he will be putting more stress on his lower body carrying the extra weight. Sounds like a 3rd down back.

    I agree that if he doesn't bulk up his lower body it doesn't do him any good.

    Running backs have to have ultra strong legs, sure, but how many have the Earl Campbell thunder thighs?


    Ok bad example :p

    The body type of Emmit Smith and Curtis Martin are very similar - smallish backs who can do it as "workhorses", and have remarkable thighs. But I've noticed some massively thighed smaller backs like Amos Zereoue have't done well as feature backs.

    I don't see of pic of Aveion's legs tho..where is there one?

    Remember Robert Newhouse? Man if he got those pistons pumping and he was leaning forward it took 5 or more guys to bring him down.
