Costa Open to Move to Guard

Dallas drafted center Travis Frederick in the first round of last month's draft



    First round draft pick Travis Frederick will almost certainly begin the 2013 season as the Dallas Cowboys’ starting center, which leaves Phil Costa searching for a spot. This could be found as Frederick’s backup or at guard, a position to which Costa said he was open to moving this week.

    “I mean, I’ve played guard before,” Costa said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I’ve played center. I guess wherever the best fit is.”

    Costa went down for the season last year after playing in only three games, the final blow coming on October 21 when he dislocated his right ankle. But Costa says he’s pretty much healthy now, and may even be ready for organized team activities.

    “It was supposed to be a four- to six-month recovery and I was pretty much 100 percent right on the four-month mark, maybe a little before,” Costa said. “But it’s healed well.”
