Cowboys Receivers Practice With Bags On Their Heads, Because Why Not? (Photos)

If recent practices are any indication, the Dallas Cowboys have another NFC East title in the bag.

Fresh off a 12-4 season, the Cowboys have their sights set on a deep playoff run. Apparently the team is doing everything it can to get better, as evidenced by a rather interesting training mechanism it employed on the wide receivers and tight ends during Tuesday’s training camp session.

Yes, that’s Jason Witten, and yes, he’s wearing a laundry bag — OK, a “vision-obscuring hood” — on his head.

We’d imagine this is a pretty effective drill, because if you can catch a football with a bag over your head, chances are you’ll do the same with a clear field of vision. A photo taken at last year’s camp suggests this isn’t the first time they’ve tried the drill, either.

We also have video proof of another fun exercise Dallas’ pass-catchers participated in earlier this summer. [tweet https://twitter.com/toddarcher/status/627276537750945792 align=’center’]

Gotta love training camp.
