Strong Side

Yesterday the Cowboys officially locked up left tackle Doug Free, this morning they have reportedly come to an agreement with Free’s partner and mentor Kyle Kosier. Kosier was an unrestricted free agent and has signed a three-year deal rumoured to be in the $9 million dollar range.

Bringing back Kosier ensures that the Cowboys left side of the offensive line stays intact and also largely signals the end of guard Leonard Davis on the other side. Cutting Davis frees up $6 million in cap space for the 2011 season. While the Cowboys will have to wait until Friday to officially announce any of their signings, they will be able to release players starting this afternoon.

While it is expected that Free, Kosier, Guorde, and first round pick, Tyron Smith, will anchor the offensive line, there still remain questions about who will play right guard. The most assumed person is veteran Montrae Holland. While Holland seems likely to take Davis’ place on the line there is a host of young guys also competing.

Training camp gets underway this morning with conditioning and testing. If the last couple of days are any indication, there will be plenty of story lines that will continue to roll out.
