Vanderjagt Visits Dallas

Former Colts kicker Mike Vanderjagt visited with the Cowboys today as the team tries to solve their question mark at the kicker spot.

Mike Vanderjagt spent a full day visiting with the Cowboys on Wednesday, touring the facilities and taking a physical according to one published report at the team's website.

Dallas' choices are becoming more limited with Vanderjagt, Paul Edinger and Seattle's Josh Brown -- a restricted free agent -- the best options remaining. However, Miami has made some rumblings that they may release Olindo Mare. And Vanderjagt has already had a visit with the Dolphins as a potential replacement. If Dallas would opt to sign Seattle's Brown to an offer sheet instead, they'd also have to give up a 7th-round pick to secure him if Seattle didn't match their offer.

Vanderjagt hit 23 of his 25 field goal attempts last year with Indianapolis, but missed a crucial kick with the Colts trailing the Steelers by three points in their playoff game in January.

One potential problem for Vanderjagt is that head coach Bill Parcells reportedly isn't fond of devoting two roster spots to the kicker position. So Vanderjagt would have to prove that he's a viable option to handle both kickoffs and field goals -- a point he wasn't able to prove to the Colts' satisfaction over the past few seasons.
