IRVING (105.3 THE FAN) – Ronald Leary, the disgruntled holdout offensive lineman, tells me he’ll end his holdout just in time to attend this week’s mandatory Dallas Cowboys minicamp.
“Nah,’’ Leary said Monday, “I’ll be there.’’
Leary has requested a trade from Dallas and has been a no-show for the volunteer OTAs in the last three weeks. The Cowboys have allowed him to explore trade possibilities in light of having handed the starting left guard job to promising youngster La’el Collins.
Leary has handled himself professionally here — including serving as a mentor to Collins — and is considered a starting-caliber lineman and a bargain after having signed his restricted free agent tender worth $2.553 million just before the draft.
