    There was a blurb from a DMN article about his agent calling the Cowboys. So it's possible he's coming in for a look-see.

    No. Just that his agent had called.

    I'm going thru DMN's C-plus to see if there's anything new on it. It's alot of articles in there right now, so if there's anything to it, it's buried.

    taken from another board:


    Raiders released T Lincoln Kennedy.
    The 35-year-old has been in talks with the Cowboys and is scheduled for a tryout on Monday. Kennedy has been out of football for two years.



    Released just a few hours ago. Cowboys have scheduled a tryout for him tomorrow morning. All this attention on the OL during training camp, first with Meadows and now with this guy, has me worried. BP must not be confident in the depth we have.

    Its early, but if you read that the right way it says 35 year old has been.........wish he could play center at least we wouldn't be getting pushed back like Al Johnson all the time...

    you could also read it as depth for an OL that does not have much......

    BP is just making sure that no stone is unturned. He will give anyone who has a record of being good a shot- you never know.

    Man, this could be a long year already. The Oline sucks so bad we are dredging up 35 yo guys to replace 25 YO's. Our center is still a turnstile it seems. I told everyone screw el dorado, we need O line. All I heard was 'we got el dorado, we win the superbowl'. Lets see el dorado block Osi or Freeny then. Arnt we still like 10 million under the cap? Oh yeah, thats right, there are no more Bentleys sitting on the shelves this late in the season. Oh well, we got el dorado alright! Personally I think it would have been more splashy to read about us winning our 6th SB next February then reading about signing el dorado last march. Is Jone's splash meter broken again or something? :lmao2:

    Well seen as Bentley is already out for the year with a torn up knee, we should be thanking our lucky stars we didn't break the bank trying to sign him.

    :banghead: Just because we take a look at Kennedy doesn't mean the OL sucks. Parcells has said himself that he leaves no stone unturned.

    This is the approach that got us Columbo who supposedly is looking good so far.

    Talk about overreaction. Step in off the ledge and repeat this slowly to yourself until it sinks in "Kennedy called us- we didn't call him". We haven't even yet indicated we'd give him a tryout, never mind a roster spot. Gheesh!

    I agree with you that people should wait for developments before reacting strongly but it's also strange that Kennedy would call in the first place. Maybe he's heard something from inside the organization? I doubt he just decided to come back & pulled Dallas' name randomly out of hat.

    OR maybe he thinks we have a shot at the SB and wants a ring?

    I think he would've contacted a few other teams first, IMO.

    It's hardly random. The man was working as an analyst last year. He knows about our problems at tackle and I'm sure he heard we were looking at Meadows. And who's to say he only called us?

    It's entirely possible that he shopped himself around but there are no reports to that as of yet. I would've thought that there would've been a few teams intrested in him & that fans would've heard some "rumor" stories.
