  After the Dallas Cowboys used this year’s first round pick on center Travis Frederick, Phil Costa is ready to fight for his job. “I look at it that it’s the NFL and every year there’s going to be competition, and competition brings out the best in anyone,” Costa said, per ESPNDallas.com. “I met Travis and he seems like a great guy who’s a good player and can help our team, help our offense get better. So I’m looking forward to it.” Costa edned up signing a two-year extension back in March. “I wanted to stay with Dallas,” Costa said. “Everything they do is a first-class organization. Being with Bill Callahan as the offensive coordinator/offensive line coach is huge because I think he’s one of the best in the league and I feel like I can get that much better being with him. We have a great group of guys in Dallas, a lot of selfless guys and I feel like we have a great chance to win here, as well.” Even though Costa signed an extension, this might be his final year as a starter, unless he loses his starting job in training camp.   Need NFL Tickets?

Paycut should serve as motivation for Cowboys' Free

No one questioned the Dallas Cowboys for giving offensive tackle Doug Free a lucrative, long-term contract in 2011. The former fourth-round pick had been the club's most consistent linemen and other teams were poised to sign him in free agency.

Dez Bryant Replies To Twitter Troll By Saying He Had Sex With The Fan’s GF

I talked to the Board of Dollarnaires and we have decided to allow this response from Dez Bryant to the trolling Cowboys hater. Probably should have just ignored it, but don’t throw a punch if you are a fan, if you are scared to get hit with the counter punch. Too many Twitter and keyboard gangsters out here, so I have no problem with Dez’s comeback, it was pretty good. Very...

Tyron Smith family man: Black sheep or fleeced by the familial flock?

Awww! Smile everyone. Cha-ching! I doubt there are many moments in a football player’s life to compare to that moment the commissioner of the NFL calls your name−especially if you are taken in the top ten. Tyron Smith was a right tackle out of USC, highly touted, highly coveted, highly talented, and after the Cowbooys took him number ten in the 2011 draft, highly paid...
