Don't forget about Brewster in Cowboys' OL plans

The Cowboys' offensive line is in motion with the release of OLT Flozell Adams and the likely promotion of Doug Free to take his place. The team also is in play for OL help in the draft and almost certainly will take one at some point, perhaps even high up. But don't take these as signs that the Cowboys are disappointed with Robert Brewster, one of their third-round picks from last season who spent the year on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle. The question now with Brewster is where he'll end up eventually. He played left tackle in college but also projects to guard, where he might be a long-term replacement for Leonard Davis or Kyle Kosier. But he also could figure in at tackle, and there's little pressure on Brewster to be ready to dominate next year. Remember, Free didn't get his chance until his third season. There's no reason to panic on Brewster's development; he could be more of a factor in 2011 than in '10 considering his lost rookie season.
