Cowboys Looking at G Kyle Kosier and TE Ryan Hannam

DMN’s Todd Archer reports that the Cowboys are considering two less touted players as their first free agent signings this season.

The Cowboys are poised to make their first splash into the free-agent pool with free-agent guard Kyle Kosier. Kosier is in the process of being evaluated medically and meeting with coaches and members of the organization. His agent, Ken Zuckerman, said a deal could be done shortly. In his four years, Kosier, 27, has started 43 games, including 11 last year in Detroit at left guard. He spent his first three seasons in San Francisco and played every position but center. His versatility is considered a big plus and coach Bill Parcells loves players who can play more than one position.

If or when Kosier signs, it could bring questions about Larry Allen’s future. He is scheduled to count $7.5 million against the 2006 salary cap and is due a $2 million roster bonus on April 1.

The Cowboys are also in the process of setting up a visit with tight end Ryan Hannam, who caught a game-tying touchdown against Dallas last season with Seattle, to possibly fill Dan Campbell’s role. Campbell could receive interest from New Orleans, where he would be reunited with Sean Payton, the New York Jets and Washington.

Relatively cheap and young beat relatively expensive and old. Beyond that, I know little about these players.
