The Dallas Cowboys and the Denver Broncos are putting in the work this offseason for sure.

Even in the midst of a global pandemic, the Dallas Cowboys and the Denver Broncos are leading the way when it comes to players working out on their own at their team facilities this offseason.

The NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reports Dallas is leading the way with 25 players, with Denver a close second at 22. While Pelissero added at least a dozen or so more teams have at least 15 players or more working out at their team facilities, five teams have officially announced they will not taking part in voluntary OTAs in the coming weeks, including the workout-warrior Broncos.

What kind of information can we really glean from Cowboys and Broncos players working out?

What this really means is that neither team was the least bit good a year ago. Everybody responds to failure in the same manner. People don’t want to be embarrassed and want to put in the work to be better so that they don’t make failure a repeated behavior. While this is good in some aspects for the Broncos and Cowboys organizations, it doesn’t mean as much as you would think.

The good news for the Cowboys is they play in a winnable division. Last year saw the sub-.500 Washington Football Team host a playoff game. Dallas is in great position to win the NFC East in 2021. As for Denver, Broncos fans might need to prepare themselves for another last-place finish in the same AFC West division that features the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Chargers.

Here is to all the work the Cowboys and Broncos put in at the team facility to work out for them.
