Shortly after the Dallas Cowboys released G / C Cory Procter, many pointed out that this type of lineman being available at this time of year is a rarity. Judging by the rate at which the former Cowboy's dance card has filled up since his release Monday, it is indeed a position in high demand.
Procter visited the Denver Broncos on Tuesday and the New England Patriots on Wednesday of this week. He then headed to Miami, to visit with the Dolphins yesterday--whose vice president, Bill Parcells, pilfered Procter from the Lions' practice squad back in 2005, while serving as the head coach for Dallas.
As of now, the Broncos seem the most likely destination for Procter, though this is a little more speculative than we'd like to admit.
However, the Broncos are in need of some experience at the center position.
Veteran Casey Wiegman, who started all 16 games in 2009 at center, was released by the team in February. Back-up Dustin Fry last saw live action in four games in 2007, while with the St. Louis Rams. The other candidate to replace Wiegman is a rookie, J.D. Walton, who was selected in the third round of this year's draft out of Baylor University.
At any rate, it seems that Procter won't have to wait long to find a new team, whoever it may be.
