The Dallas Cowboys and head coach Mike McCarthy are now engaged in required offseason training in order to be ready for the 2024–25 NFL season, which is scheduled to start in September. The Cowboys enjoyed an overall good regular season in 2023–2024; but, their epic collapse against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC playoffs Wild Card round left some supporters with a bad taste in their mouths and sparked calls for McCarthy to be placed under formal investigation.

Star cornerback Trevon Diggs was among the Cowboys players who missed the majority of the previous season due to an ACL tear he sustained during a workout a few weeks into the season.

But if the most recent stories are to be believed, Diggs appears to be making good progress toward a full comeback in the coming year.

“CB Trevon Diggs ‘looks great,'” according to Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy, following his recovery from an ACL tear. Although there’s a strong chance Diggs will begin training camp on the PUP list, NFL insider Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News stated on his X account—a social media network that was once known as Twitter—that “he’s in a good spot.”

Naturally, PUP stands for “Physically unable to perform.” Training camp is scheduled to commence later in the summer.

McCarthy wasn’t the only Cowboys employee who was optimistic about Diggs’ potential comeback recently.

Al Harris, the defensive backs coach and associate head coach, recently discussed the importance of having both Diggs and DaRon Bland, who led the league in interceptions the previous season, available on the field when they are well.

According to CBS Sports’ Garrett Podell, Harris declared, “I’m fired up.” “I apologize, dude. I’m genuinely revved up. All I can want for as a coach is to be able to show my work on tape and to have guys that I have developed, guided, and mentored. “Look, I know your work is difficult, but I need you to do this.” I’m excited to see those guys out there together because you just go out and do it.

Over the past several seasons, the Cowboys have seen greater success during the regular season than in the past, but they haven’t been able to convert that success into any meaningful postseason runs. In the 2022–2023 playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers, starting quarterback Dak Prescott’s subpar performance proved to be the team’s undoing.

The Cowboys’ loss to the Packers in the previous postseason wasn’t much better for Prescott, but the real story of that game was the defense—or rather, the lack thereof—that the team played. Green Bay starting quarterback Jordan Love shredded the Cowboys’ defense, and it’s safe to say that the team could have used a player like Diggs on the field.

Regardless, Dallas doesn’t seem to get a better shot than they will have this year to finally break through and win the Lombardi Trophy, with Diggs getting closer to a return and the rest of the Cowboys looking healthy.
