Just a few months ago, Montrae Holland was the supposed starter at left guard after the release of Leonard Davis. That didn’t exactly work out, as Holland spent most of training camp injured and rookie Bill Nagy won the job. Holland was cut after camp, but now, there’s a chance that he could return to Dallas.
The Cowboys lost Nagy to a fractured ankle in Sunday’s loss to the Patriots, and Holland, who spent a number of years in Dallas mostly as a swing guard, is one of three players the team will work out in order to shore up the line.
The other two potential options are Daniel Loper, a Texas Tech product who has spent time with the Titans, Lions and Raiders, and Mansfield Wrotto, a Georgia Tech guy who had stints with the Seattle Seahawks and Buffalo Bills.
Dallas is also hopeful that veteran Derrick Dockery will soon return from a sprained knee and hairline fracture, an injury that has kept him out of the team’s last three games.
