Cowboys' OTAs start; expect roster move
By Calvin Watkins
Today is the first day of the organized team activities, and the Cowboys will make a roster move at some point today, cutting backup offensive lineman Cory Procter.
Procter was the backup center last year and replaced Kyle Kosier in the starting lineup during the 2008 season when he suffered a foot injury.
Procter signed his free agent tender at $1.759 million, but the team is interested in Montrae Holland and Travis Bright as possible backup centers.
Also of note, it will be interesting to see how wide receiver Dez Bryant fares against Terence Newman and Mike Jenkins at corner.
We expect the wide receiver rotation to go Miles Austin, Roy Williams and Dez Bryant. No Patrick Crayton today -- he's sitting out this week.
Tony Romo has a tee time to qualify for the HP Byron Nelson Championship around 9:57 a.m., but it's doubtful he will make it. The OTAs start at 11 a.m. and Romo needs a rain delay to get him out on the course.
The weather people say theres' a 20 percent chance of rain in the forecast. We've got sunny skies right now.
