Cowboys and the FAA discuss use of drone over practice field

 The Federal Aviation Administration and the Dallas Cowboys are at odds over the use of a drone during the team's rookie mini camp last month.  The drone was used to video tape offensive and defensive sets during the mini camp.

 FAA spokesman Lynn Lunsford says the agency is not investigating the Cowboys drone use but, "The agency has contacted  the Dallas Cowboys organization to explain the proper procedure for obtaining the necessary exemption." Lunsford says the Cowboys are providing information to the FAA.

Lunsford says two other NFL teams have drawn FAA scrutiny for their use of drones, "The FAA will  look into the New York Giants' and New England Patriots' recent use of an unmanned aircraft system during team practices."
