After the Dallas Cowboys used this year’s first round pick on center Travis Frederick, Phil Costa is ready to fight for his job.
“I look at it that it’s the NFL and every year there’s going to be competition, and competition brings out the best in anyone,” Costa said, per ESPNDallas.com. “I met Travis and he seems like a great guy who’s a good player and can help our team, help our offense get better. So I’m looking forward to it.”
Costa edned up signing a two-year extension back in March.
“I wanted to stay with Dallas,” Costa said. “Everything they do is a first-class organization. Being with Bill Callahan as the offensive coordinator/offensive line coach is huge because I think he’s one of the best in the league and I feel like I can get that much better being with him. We have a great group of guys in Dallas, a lot of selfless guys and I feel like we have a great chance to win here, as well.”
Even though Costa signed an extension, this might be his final year as a starter, unless he loses his starting job in training camp.
