Kosier not concerned about 'big shoes to fill'
By MAC ENGEL

IRVING - Of all the new players the Cowboys acquired in the off-season, Kyle Kosier is in the least enviable spot.
A free agent signed away from the Lions, Kosier was ostensibly signed to replace left guard Larry Allen, a future Hall of Famer who was released.
"They are big shoes to fill, but I have confidence I will get it done," Kosier said. "I'll play anywhere they tell me."
The Cowboys signed Kosier because of his versatility; he says he's comfortable playing anywhere along the offensive line. But it appears the left guard spot is his to lose.
Cowboys coach Bill Parcells said some young players could push for the spot.
"I am not saying it's wide open because Kosier has more experience than the other guys," Parcells said.
"If someone showed up big, you would have to [consider] that."
After spending the first three years of his NFL career with the 49ers and the last with the Lions, Kosier sounds thrilled to be in a place where expectations are high.
"There is a [higher] standard here," he said. "They expect more of me here. I like it that way."
Tight end Jason Witten can be a free agent at season's end, but the Cowboys have said they would like to prevent that from happening.
Witten said the two sides have had preliminary discussions about an extension. Witten said if they are going to do a contract extension, he would like to have it completed before the start of the season. If not, then he'd like to wait until the season is over.
Receiver Terrell Owens is torn regarding the NBA Finals. He's a friend of Mavs guard Jason Terry, as well as Heat center Shaquille O' Neal.
So when asked to pick a Mavs-Heat winner, Owens put on his dancing shoes.
"I'm going to be neutral," said Owens, who plans to attend the games. "I may have a Heat jersey with a Mavs hat on. I just like the great ones....The Mavs are a great team. [It's] great for the city."
Those clamoring to see what backup quarterback Tony Romo can do might finally get their wish.
Bill Parcells said he hopes Romo "shows enough to be confident to play him."
Parcells did not say, however, the quarterback position was open.
Romo has yet to throw a regular-season pass in three NFL seasons.
"I think had he been thrown to the wolves, so to speak, he probably would be looked upon a little differently than he is now," Parcells said. "So we'll see; I'm hoping to play him quite a bit in preseason."
Why do you think ?
Terrell Owens offered up a theory about why Bill Parcells isn't fielding any questions about Owens until training camp.
"I'm pretty sure he's probably sick of hearing T.O.," the wide receiver said.
Another reason why there has been so little talk about Owens from Parcells or Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones:
The two have a little bet on who can say the least about the receiver.
