The Dallas Cowboys are such an integral force in the NFL that even calling your city home to their practices can be quite an honor. That's an honor that Valley Ranch could be in danger of losing amid reports that after 28 years the Cowboys are looking for a new place to call home for their practices, according to the Dallas Morning News' David Moore.
Despite the fact that Dallas is one of the best draws in the league, Valley Ranch has been referred to as "outdated" and behind the curve of some other practice facilities in the NFL, so it appears that they could look to build a new facility somewhere else.
The Cowboys will continue to practice at Valley Ranch for the 2013 season, but Moore's sources say that they could be in discussions with Frisco, Arlington, or keeping the team in Irving, where Valley Ranch is located.
Valley Ranch is approximately 110,000 square feet on 30 acres, but reportedly around three-quarters of the NFL has built a new practice facility since it was officially opened in August 1985. It still lacks certain amenities, such as a full-service dining hall, and for Jerry Jones and the Cowboys it would seem that they would like to have all the luxuries of any other professional sports team.
It appears that as of right now, they're starting to look for a place to break ground on the next one, even if it remains in Valley Ranch.
