Weekend Roundup: Cowboys Cut Kosier, Re-Sign Ogletree

The Dallas Cowboys continued making moves over the weekend



    The Dallas Cowboys continued making over their roster this weekend, though the pair of moves were less splashy than anything that happened during last week, which saw seven free agents--including cornerback Brandon Carr, safety Brodney Pool and guard Nate Livings--come into the fold.

    First, the team re-signed receiver Kevin Ogletree to a one-year deal worth $650,000. Ogletree, a native of New York, had visited the Giants last week but the World Champions passed on him--clearing the way for the young receiver to return to Dallas and compete for the no. 3 receiver spot left vacant by Laurent Robinson.

    Second, Dallas decided to part ways with veteran guard Kyle Kosier. The move was preceded by the team signing two guards last week in the aforementioned Livings and former Carolina Panther Mackenzy Bernadeau. The 2011 season was Kosier’s 10th in the NFL and his sixth as a member of the Cowboys.

    Kosier is just the latest casualty in the youth movement on the Cowboys’ line, which began last year with the release of Leonard Davis and center Andre Gurode.
