Todd Archer: Here are six Cowboys to put on your radar screen 05:02 PM CDT on Thursday, July 1, 2004 Todd Archer Inside the Game With training camp approaching, there are plenty of storylines and plenty of players who you want to look at on the field. It will be more than interesting at quarterback with the competition between Quincy Carter and Vinny Testaverde. Then there’s the addition of Keyshawn Johnson, the continued growth of Terence Newman and Roy Williams and the addition of Julius Jones at tailback. Those are the obvious ones. What about the under-the-radar players, those who could become vital pieces to a Cowboys team that is looking to make the playoffs in back-to-back years? Here’s a look at some of them: ReShard Lee – Offseasons are difficult to gauge because nothing is done at full speed, but any offseason that includes a hole-in-one is a good one. (Lee aced a 174-yard par-3 hole in May at Tour 18, a course outside Dallas.) But seriously, there is something there with the second-year running back. He was doing well during last year’s training camp until an injury forced his release because of numbers. He was brought back to the practice squad after some time in Miami, and the Cowboys are hoping they got a steal. He has added muscle to his frame. He has some power and he has wiggle, too. We’re not saying he’s the second coming, but he could develop into a nice back. As it stands, he figures to get the reps behind Julius Jones in training camp. Randal Williams – He has not caught a pass in three regular seasons with the Cowboys, but he was rewarded with a $350,000 signing bonus this offseason. He is the fastest player on the team now that Joey Galloway is gone. He has improved as a receiver, but his main strength remains as a special teams player. Like Lee, there’s something intriguing with Williams, and he must prove he can handle the fourth spot behind Keyshawn Johnson, Terry Glenn and Antonio Bryant. Stephen Peterman – He was a starter on a national championship team at LSU (OK, co-national champs to the Southern Cal fans), and he has the demeanor Parcells likes in linemen. There’s a mean streak. Peterman, a 6-4, 317-pound guard, may not look pretty while he’s doing the job, but he will get the job done. And he won’t quit. Andre Gurode should be wary of this rookie. Cowboys coach Bill Parcells is not afraid to put rookies on the field. Al Johnson – Parcells likes this kid’s demeanor, too. Parcells’ great teams have all had excellent centers. Bart Oates with the New York Giants. Dave Wohlabaugh in New England. Kevin Mawae with the Jets. Johnson’s rookie season was wiped out because of an injury to his right knee, but he has regained his strength and weight. He will go into camp as the starter, but he will have to take a few hits before all will be right with his world because he will be thinking of the injury. Bradie James – It’s difficult to imagine a player can come out of LSU and not be able to “lift a Kleenex,” as Parcells said earlier this offseason, but James has added bulk to his frame and will be given the chance to take a starting linebacker job from Dexter Coakley. James has the size and speed Parcells likes in linebackers. He will be in a position to make plays, but will it be enough to offset Coakley’s experience? Mat McBriar – He came in at the end of last season without much of a peep, even with Toby Gowin’s struggles punting. McBriar, an Australian, has a powerful leg, but he has not kicked in a regular-season game. Like fellow Aussie Darren Bennett, the Pro Bowler in San Diego now in Minnesota, McBriar is allegedly – again, we need to see it in a game – very good at pinning opponents deep in its own territory. He is a former Australian Rules footballer, so he’s tough. He might also have to be Billy Cundiff’s holder.
