As many as five players are planning visits this week to Dallas. Fullback Richie Anderson and tackle Ryan Young, both of whom played under new head coach Bill Parcells when he coached the New York Jets, are expected to make free-agent visits early this week.
Anderson has played in the National Football League for 10 seasons and would provided some much needed insurance at fullback with rookie Jamar Martin coming off a torn ACL and the release of Robert Thomas.
New Orleans quarterback Jake Delhomme, New Orleans punter Toby Gowin, and New York Giants tight end Dan Campbell are also expected to be in Valley Ranch as well.
Campbell, who continues to have unsuccessful negotiations with the Giants and is stuck behind Pro Bowl performer Jeremy Shockey as the #2 tight end, could be an option for the Cowboys this offseason.
Campbell has seen his production increase in each of the last 3 seasons and has 43 catches for 369 yards and 5 touchdowns in his 4-year NFL career.
Toby Gowin was orginally with the Cowboys during his first three years in the league, and he's never averaged below 41.1 yards per punt in any of his 5 seasons. His chances of signing with Dallas appear to be strong after the massive struggles on special teams in recent years.
Delhomme has been one of the more popular names mentioned around the league at quarterback this offseason however, getting him out of New Orleans may be difficult.
He's a New Orleans native that would like to stay in his hometown, even if it means backing up Aaron Brooks for the next 5 years.
Chicago, Dallas, and even the Washington Redskins have been rumored to be interested in his services.
Delhomme, who played his college ball at Louisiana-Lafayette, has completed 50-of-86 passes for 3 touchdowns and 5 interceptions in his 5-year NFL career.
