Cowboys Set To Cut Costa



    It's been a rough few months for Dallas Cowboys reserve center Phil Costa. First off, the Cowboys drafted his replacement in Travis Frederick. Then, his engagement to Hulk Hogan's daughter, Brooke, was called off back in November, and now he appears to soon be jobless.

    Costa only appeared in three games for the Cowboys in 2013 and was inactive for many, and according to Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News, he has most likely played in his final game for the Cowboys. A source told the Morning News that Costa will be released by the team before the March 11 deadline to have him not applied to the 2014 salary cap.

    A year ago, the Cowboys gave Costa a two-year deal worth $2.7 million but he hasn't been the team's starter since the 2011 season. Frederick was the team's starting center in 2013 as a rookie out of Wisconsin and ended up making several all-rookie teams. He's given the Cowboys two of the best young offensive linemen in the game along with tackle Tyron Smith.
