Knee Surgery For LB Kevin Burnett

My Dawg Kevin Burnett will have left knee surgery.  That just stinks for the Cowboys.  Burnett is one of their better linebackers in pass coverage.

I’ll say it again, that just stinks.

His Cowboys career has been marred with injuries.    The Morning News reports he will have surgery on Friday and be out 4 weeks.  This is his 5th surgery since being drafted by the Cowboys in 2005.

This is the final year of his contract.  Not good news for a guy who told me he was ready to make a big payday after the season.

Well, Bobby Carpenter, you’re the next man up.  Good thing they didn’t trade him to Miami in the offseason.  I said all along they shouldn’t trade Bobby for a bag of beans because they may need him.

Rick Gosselin’s Final Mock Draft

Newdawg blog readers know I’m a big time fan of Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News. 

Goose is a tremendous writer and he talks to all the teams.  One day I had him on NBC 5 and he had spoken to five NFL GM’s that day.

He’s got the Cowboys taking a running back and a corner in the first round.   Click for the entire mock draft.
