It once looked like OLG Kyle Kosier's return to the Cowboys was unlikely this offseason. But the longer the lockout has lingered, the greater the chances have become of him returning. That becomes especially true if the salary cap is lower than expected — say $120 million or south of there — because it will increase the likelihood of Leonard Davis and his massive contract being cut. The Cowboys already know that rookie ORT Tyron Smith has been affected negatively by the lockout, and they still have to face re-signing OLT Doug Free, last season's best lineman. So keeping as much continuity on the offensive line will be at a premium. Although getting a new deal for Free will be the tougher chore, finding enough money to bring back Kosier appears a higher priority. The fallback option would be giving Montrae Holland the first crack at starting at left guard, but that is not the most attractive option in the coaches' minds.
