NFL.com reports the Cowboys have agreed to a five year $15 million deal with OL Kyle Kosier. The deal contains a $5 million signing bonus.
Contrary to what I wrote before, that's starter's money. Kosier has played all OL positions except center in his four year career, so the question is whether he's the new right tackle or whether he might be a replacement for LG Larry Allen?
Dallas has re-signed C/G Andre Gurode to a one-year deal
Update: The Ranch Report claims Jaguars LB Akin Ayodele will visit Valley Ranch today.
Update II: A flood of afternoon signings to report:
1. The Cardinals have signed DT Kendrick Clancy, formerly of the Giants;
2. The Rams have signed S Corey Chavous;
3. The Panthers have signed DT Ma'ake Kemoeatu from the Ravens.
4. The Redskins are channeling the ghost of George Allen again. Washington is ready to send its 3rd rounder this year and a 2007 4th rounder to the 49ers for WR Brandon Lloyd. The move would leave Washington with just one first day draft pick, since its 1st rounder belongs to Denver, courtesy of last year's Jason Campbell trade.
The Kemoeatu signing could affect the Cowboys second round -- if the Browns take either Haloti Ngata or Brodrick Bunkley in the first round. The Panthers biggest need entering the offseason was a big DT, with Brentson Buckner being cut and Kris Jenkins missing extensive time in '04 and '05 with injuries.
Many mock drafts have gifted Gabe Watson to Carolina. If the Browns fill their NT needs there is the change Watson, whom Dallas scouted intensely at the Senior Bowl, could drop to the mid second round.
