NFL Free Agency 2012: Kyle Kosier To Be Released, According To Report

The Dallas Cowboys will reportedly release 10-year veteran Kyle Kosier after he was made expendable by the signings of Mackenzy Bernadeau and Nate Livings. The Cowboys will earn $1.5 million in savings against the salary cap by cutting Kosier.

Kosier's departure will complete a transformation of the Dallas offensive line that began prior to the 2011 season.

Kosier's expected departure completes a massive overhaul of the offensive line which began before the 2011 season when the Cowboys released guard Leonard Davis, center Andre Gurode and tackle Marc Colombo. They had parted ways with tackle Flozell Adams the off-season prior.

Kosier played in all 16 games for the Cowboys in 2011. During his career he has also played for the San Francisco 49ers and the Detroit Lions.
