McBriar joined the Cowboys' practice squad in 2003 and was the team's full-time punter from 2004-11. He is the franchise's leader in gross (45.3) and net averages (38.1) as well as most punts inside the opponents' 20 (175). He averaged 43.8 yards per punt in 14 games in 2011 but was hampered for most of the year with a nerve issue that affected his left foot. He had surgery in February to remove a cyst below his left knee and has been punting for the last six weeks in San Diego. McBriar started punting six weeks ago in San Diego and believed he would be at his best when the season began.
