The Cowboys could sign Pro Bowl return specialist Allen Rossum as soon as Wednesday, according to an ESPNDallas.com report. Rossum ranks second in league history with 14,987 return yards. If the deal gets done, the 33-year-old Rossum would immediately take over both kick and punt returns for the Cowboys.

Rossum grew up and attended high school in Dallas, so this would be a great place for him to end his career. It's been more than a decade since the Cowboys have had a reliable return man. I'm trying to track down Rossum as we speak.

He was a third-round draft pick by the Eagles in 1998 as a return specialist/defensive back.
