Cowboys Re-Sign Marc Colombo

The Dallas Cowboys re-signed right tackle Marc Colombo today to a four-year deal keeping him in Dallas until 2012. Colombo originally signed with the club on November 2, 2005 as a free agent following his release from the Chicago Bears.

After a rough start to his career injury wise, he has been a model of durability for the Cowboys - starting all 16 regular season games in 2006 and 2007 and every game thus far in 2008. For his career he has started 54-of-70 regular season games. He was a first round draft pick (29th overall) by the Bears in 2002, where he played in the first 11 weeks before landing on reserve/injured on November 26 with a dislocated left patella and femoral nerve damage.

He spent the entire 2003 season and the beginning of the 2004 season on reserve/PUP while rehabbing his knee. Colombo signed to the active roster in Week 10 of 2004 and finished out the season, before being released after the first game in 2005.
