The Cowboys could sign free-agent kicker Ola Kimrin as early as next week according to recent reports out of Valley Ranch.
Kimrin, a native of Sweden, has had visa problems but is expected to arrive Dallas this weekend to finalize his contract. Kimrin, who went to training camp with the Broncos last year, is expected to give incumbent kicker Billy Cundiff some competition in training camp.
Kimrin has spent significant time in NFL Europe with the Frankfurt Galaxy and also is a Texas native, attending college at the University of Texas-El Paso.
In 2001, he nailed 7-of-7 extra points and 10-of-13 field goals, with a long of 47 yards.
Cundiff made just 12-of-19 field goals last season for Dallas, and was largely ineffective with the game on the line. The rookie also struggled with his kickoffs, routinely allowing the opposing team to have outstanding field position.
"I haven't had a great game, but I don't think by any means I've had any bad games. I'm in the middle of the road," Cundiff said last season. "I am very disappointed I haven't made some field goals here and there that in my mind were gimmies. But I don't have those other kicks, like other kickers, to pad their stats."
Cundiff beat out veteran Tim Sedar last season after impressing former head coach Dave Campo with his strong leg during the preseason.
