DALLAS COWBOYS (12-6)
CAMP SITE: Oxnard, California.

MIAMI DOLPHINS (9-8)
CAMP SITE: Miami Gardens, Florida

FRISCO, Texas (AP) — The four positions with the most significant losses for the Dallas Cowboys this offseason matched the club's first four picks in the draft.
Tulsa offensive lineman Tyler Smith was the first-round choice with Dallas looking to replace two starters up front.
102. MIAMI DOLPHINS (9-8)
LAST SEASON: The Dolphins finished one game away from a wild-card spot despite a 1-7 start to the season, then reeling off seven consecutive wins to make things very interesting.
Monday marked the start of this year's legal tampering period in the NFL, when teams can contact players who are about to become unrestricted free agents and negotiate possible deals.
The Miami Dolphins' sales pitch was clearly working.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Dak Prescott ran into Dallas' locker room with a message for any NFC team he'll play next week in the playoffs.

FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Dallas receiver Amari Cooper has been placed on the COVID-19 reserve list and will miss the Cowboys' game Sunday at Kansas City.
The timing of the move Friday raises questions about Cooper's availability for the Thanksgiving game against his former team, the Las Vegas Raiders.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos got good news on injured rookie cornerback Patrick Surtain II on Monday when medical tests revealed a sprained knee but nothing that will sideline the team's top draft pick for an extended time.
LAS VEGAS — Boise State started out with short routes for Cedrick Wilson.
The senior receiver was targeted regularly in the first quarter of the Las Vegas Bowl with receptions of eight, 10 and eight yards, then caught a 26-yard touchdown pass that gave the Broncos a 14-0 lead en route to a 38-28 win over Oregon on Saturday at Sam Boyd Stadium.
