Cowboys to part ways with Kris Brown
The Cowboys have informed the veteran kicker and Southlake native that he will be cut by Thursday. He was scheduled to earn $910,000 in 2011.
Brown was inactive for the season finale at Philadelphia but was viewed as a competitor to David Buehler for the kicking job. Brown made four of five field goal attempts in 2010 in three games with San Diego after he lost his job in Houston after spending eight seasons in Houston.
For his career Brown has made 256-of-331 attempts.
In his first season as the kicker Buehler made 24-of-32 attempts and had several costly misses, including a point after attempt at Arizona that ended up costing the Cowboys a possible win. He made game winners at Indianapolis in overtime and a 39-yarder vs. Washington with 50 seconds to play in December.
He is devastating on kickoffs with 51 in his first two seasons but has to become more consistent on field goals.
