The Dallas Cowboys have signed center Phil Costa to a two-year contract, pulling off another deal to save salary cap space. Costa's agent, George Mavrikes, told The Associated Press on Saturday that Costa's $2.7 million, two-year deal includes a $450,000 signing bonus for $950,000 guaranteed this season. That will be a savings on the cap for the Cowboys since Costa could have made about $1.3 million as a free agent. Costa played in only three games last season, missing most of training camp with a back issue that he re-aggravated in the season opener. He played two games in October before needing season-ending ankle surgery. The move came only days after the Cowboys reworked the contracts of five starters, including DeMarcus Ware, Jason Witten and Miles Austin, to save salary cap space. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL

  • Here we go again. Costa is a good enough person but is her really worth the money when he can't seem to stay healthy??? The guy is damaged goods and will not hold up for a full season. Back problems = leg problems = carrying too much weight on a frame not meant to carry so many pounds. One more case of JJ putting himself in a crack.. the great talent evaluator.
