FRISCO, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys' offseason program comes to an end Thursday, but Dak Prescott and the receivers are planning some work of their own before the team flies to Oxnard, California, for the start of training camp on July 22.

The specifics of where and when still need to be worked out, but they plan to hold their own kind of quarterback camp on the side, either at The Star in Frisco, Texas, or elsewhere.

"I'm sure when we're all in town or a couple of us are in town or even one receiver is in town, when I'm here we'll get some work in," Prescott said. "I don't care if it's we're both out in [Los Angeles] and we accidentally run into each other, we'll probably get some work in that next day or something. It's just communicating and knowing where we're at and to get a time together where we're all there."

Other quarterbacks have organized workouts with their skill players before the official start of the offseason program. That Prescott and the receivers will use their final down time before the training camp grind beings is telling.

"Mostly just running routes and throwing with him and him getting comfortable with throwing me the ball," Cole Beasley said. "Work on the things maybe we didn't do very good last year and still work on the stuff that we do good at and continuing to get better."

Beasley has not been able to take part in the organized team activities and minicamp because of a hamstring strain. Lucky Whitehead has been out since the first OTA with a hamstring strain. Prescott has gotten a lot of work with Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams, Brice Butler and Ryan Switzer.

"I'll be here anyway working with [associate athletic trainer Britt Brown] and the trainers and stuff, so we'll get some work in in here, but the other wideouts will be involved too," Beasley said. "Just got to get ahead of it and stay in sync."
