Gerry Fraley, Dallas Morning News The Cowboys must make one more acquisition before training camp begins: former collegiate and professional wrestler Brock Lesnar. He has given up wrestling for football, and agent Ed Hitchcock said the Cowboys are among several NFL teams that have expressed interest in attending a full-scale workout by Lesnar. He won the NCAA heavyweight wrestling title for Minnesota in 2000 and turned down an offer from then-coach Tony Dungy to sign with Tampa Bay, instead joining World Wrestling Entertainment. At 26, Lesnaris 6-3, 290 pounds with remarkable speed and agility but has not played football since high school in South Dakota. Don't laugh: Collegiate wrestlers have made it in the NFL. New England offensive lineman Stephen Neal, who beat Lesnar in the 1999 NCAA final, did not play football in college. Curly Culp, the prototypical nose tackle, won the title in 1967. Pro wrestlers have made it, too. Who can forget AFL standouts Ernie "Big Cat" Ladd and "Chief" Wahoo McDaniel? And "Dick the Bruiser" Afflis, who played with Green Bay? The sight of Lesnar leaping into his "shooting star press" move would unnerve any quarterback. Coach killers: One reason for the Cowboys' unexpected success last season was that no one played more teams that had given up the ghost. The Cowboys had an NFL-high seven games against teams that fired coaches during or after the season. Philadelphia had the second-highest total, with six. The Eagles went 6-0 in their games against endangered coaches and players who were quitting on them. The Cowboys were 6-1 in their games. Bigger is better: If Bradie James moves out Dexter Coakley at weakside linebacker with the Cowboys, it will be because coach Bill Parcells needs more big plays from the position. Coakley had only one sack and five tackles for losses last season. Undersized linebackers, such as Coakley, go as hard as they can to stay even. They do not overwhelm.
