Former Dallas Cowboys placekicker David Buehler has signed with the New York Giants. The team announced the move Wednesday.
Today on New School, Choppy clued us in to an encounter he had with the former Dallas Cowboys kicker at training camp in San Antonio.
In memoriam: Terence Newman. After his nine-year career ended in Dallas with his release Tuesday, the cornerback’s career lay uncomfortably between a bust and underwhelming.
Buehler was primarily a kickoff specialist for the Cowboys, but missed most of last season with a groin injury. The move was announced Tuesday before free agency began.
“I’m very frustrated. It is his job to stay ready to play and prepare himself so those kinds of things for what he’s got to do don’t come up.”
The move was made Thursday, a day after Buehler re-aggravated the injury. The kickoff specialist had been back for only two games after missing the previous four.
Rayner arrived Tuesday, a day after being cut by the Detroit Lions. He joins a mix that includes incumbent David Buehler, recent arrival Shayne Graham and undrafted rookie Dan Bailey.
Only two teams were worse in accuracy on field goals last season, with the Cowboys making only three of every four attempts.
David Buehler made a 39-yard field goal with 50 seconds left, giving the Dallas Cowboys a 33-30 victory over the Washington Redskins that was a lot tougher than it had to be.
Peyton Manning had two interceptions returned for touchdowns Sunday and his fourth of the day set up David Buehler for a 38-yard field goal that gave Dallas a 38-35 victory in overtime.
Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints have recovered from blowing a 17-point lead by marching 89 yards for a go-ahead touchdown with 1:55 left to pull out a 30-27 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday.
At the time – April 30, 2009 – I called the Dallas Cowboys’ draft class of 2009 a “dirty dozen.” And, no, it was a compliment. Fast-forward to today and, unfortunately, it’s uglier than ever.
