Why the Cowboys can’t wait for OTAs

Cowboys offensive coordinator Scott Linehan has already spent the first month of OTAs working with rookie offensive tackle Zack Martin and tight end Greg Olsen.

That’s a lot of work for the Cowboys to do in less than six weeks.

Linehan said Sunday the focus for the rest of OTas is on getting better in the trenches.

The Cowboys will have a chance to get some better at guard, and then they’ll start to see if they can get some production from the position.

Lineham said the Cowboys have seen some improvement in the first two weeks.

He said Martin and Olsen will be the starting left tackles this week.

The third offensive lineman will be an unknown, but Linehan is hopeful that third-round pick Chase Farris will play this week because he’s coming off a career-best season at Utah.

Farris, a second-round draft pick, is coming off shoulder surgery.

Lineh said the team also hopes to have Martin, a third-year pro, back on the field for the season opener against the Redskins on Nov. 8.

Martin was sidelined for six weeks in 2014 after fracturing his fibula.

The left tackle played in just six games in 2015 after breaking his foot in training camp.

Linehas said the club’s depth chart will be similar to what it has been the past few years.

The team also wants to see how the team performs on offense when it has a chance in OTAs.

Line had a difficult year with injuries to several players, but he said the focus is on finding the best players for each position.

That will be especially important with the Cowboys having only nine offensive linemen on the roster.

Lineha said the offensive line has worked hard in OTas, but they have to see the field more in the preseason to see whether the team can get more production out of the position as the regular season approaches.
