The Cowboys had one less OTA day than originally allotted this offseason and lost one as a penalty for 2021’s organized team activity that got too physical.

The second verse is the same as the first.

Head coach Mike McCarthy was fined again and the team suspended the OTA in 2023 after the league determined the practice violated contactless rules for the second year in a row, according to multiple reports Thursday night.

Last yearMcCarthy was fined $50,000 when a video of a practice session in late May showed that “the intensity and pace of the club’s inside line and passing coverage during 11-on-11 practice were at levels where the players were clearly in physical competition.”

The coach said then: “We are doing it right. There is no doubt about it. Our players try to do it right… I think there were seven to nine games that we considered as a group, and to be honest, most of them were younger players, so it’s a rewarding experience for me. I think, like everything in life, if you get punished for trying to do too much right rather than not doing enough right, I think it’s a rewarding experience to learn from.”

Details of this latest incident, which resulted in punishment, have not been released. But McCarthy’s fine was doubled from last year to $100,000.

Although the team lost an entire day during this year’s voluntary OTAs, the team closed their mandatory mini-camp on Thursday after canceling the last two of three practices. McCarthy cited having “crossed the finish linewith material that he and the coaching staff wanted to cover.

Now, their 2023 OTA schedule has also gotten a bit lighter.

Not to mention McCarthy’s wallet.
