Cowboys Could Be On Lookout for O-Linemen



    Right now, the Dallas Cowboys offensive line is looking pretty shaky.

    True, there's up-and-comer Doug Free and the solid rock of the Cowboys line over the last couple of years, Kyle Kosier.

    But after that, it's unproven, and not very deep.

    The Cowboys will start No. 1 draft pick Tyron Smith at right tackle, and moved Kosier to right guard to get Smith some experienced help.

    With Montrae Holland battling a back injury, and really being a shaky option at best, the Cowboys will most certainly be looking for a veteran guard to bring into camp at some point before the season starts.

    If Holland doesn't get healthy, or good, the Cowboys will have two rookie starting offensive linemen, in Smith and fourth-round pick David Arkin, who looks to be a starting guard for the Cowboys if things don't shape up quickly.

    One of the top options there has to be Big Leonard Davis, who was cut loose in the free agency frenzy that took place after the labor agreement was reached. He was cut loose to free up money under the Cowboys' cap, which was absolutely necessary considering his 7-year, $49.6 million deal.

    Davis wouldn't be a bad option to come back, and judging by the rapid pace that teams are picking up free agents and he remains unsigned points to the fact that he could be had at a lower price.
