Remember when the Bears lost out on an OTA practice two weeks ago and the whole Bears social media went crazy? Yes, that's what I thought.

Well, it happened again today. Adam Schefter reported that Dallas' HC Mike McCarthy was fined $100,000, and the Cowboys were docked an organized team activity for 2023 for holding practices that were deemed too physical by the NFL.
The reason the fine is so hefty is that this is not the first offence for this staff. A year ago, McCarthy was fined $50,000 and the Cowboys were fined $100,000 and had an OTA taken away this offseason for the same reason.
"I think the biggest thing is you have a starting line and finish line and I just felt like we crossed the finish line, particularly with the veterans," McCarthy said when asked why he cut the minicamp short. "And really today's focus was just really spending final time with the rookies. I think they had their opportunity to get their final lift in for this week, spend a bunch of individual time with the coordinators and assistant coaches and really frankly focus on the five-week plan that's in front of them. Everything we wanted to accomplish in the offseason was completed, and really the focus turns to their individual five-week plan."

Under the CBA agreement, all teams must film their OTA practices to allow the league to review and enforce the non-contact rule for voluntary sessions.
OTAs with live contact are banned by the collective bargaining agreement.
The Cowboys are now done with their spring workouts and will return to work in July for their training camp in Oxnard, California.
