Cowboys Talk to Prime UFA Prospect

This prospect out of the Big 12 may not be well-known, but he has quickly become a prime candidate to be signed by the Dallas Cowboys after the 2006 NFL Draft.

Looking for a prime candidate to be an undrafted free agent for the Dallas Cowboys later this year? Look no further than Boone Stutz, a long snapper/tight end prospect out of Texas A&M.

Stutz, who measured in at 6-6, 260 pounds at the NFL Combine, told Thursday that the Dallas Cowboys and Seattle Seahawks are the two teams that have showed the most interest in him thus far.

He also said that even though he's listed as a special teams player due to his long-snapping ability, teams are showing interest in him primarily as a tight end as well.

Stutz played two years with the Aggies after transferring from Alabama. During his career in the Big 12, he caught 10 passes for 168 yards and two touchdowns while also serving as a long snapper.

Undrafted free agents are players that are eligible for the NFL Draft but are not selected by an NFL team. Last year, the Cowboys had several UFAs make their regular season roster or the practice squad, including reserve running back Tyson Thompson.

Last year, the Cowboys signed former Maryland long snapper Jon Condo after the NFL Draft in hopes of having him replace veteran Jeff Robinson, who was scheduled to make $1 million.

After releasing Robinson, Condo's short stint in Dallas was unsuccessful and the Cowboys depended on L.P. Ladouceur to handle their long snapping needs.

This year, the Cowboys will look to sign at least one more long snapper, likely after the 2006 draft.
