Former Giants LB Kyle Bosworth to Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys, the Giants week one opponent, have claimed LB Kyle Bosworth off the waiver wire.  It is unclear whether the Giants thought he would clear waivers and be eligible for the practice squad, but it doesn’t matter now.  Dallas would exploit the young man for all the information he might have on the Giants offense and defense, including signals and calls made on the field.  Kyle, the nephew of “The Boz”, is not an every down LBer, and although a good special teams player, he was not projected as a starter.  As a matter of fact if you look at the Cowboys depth chart he will be the 10th LB on the team.  Looks to me as if this is a ploy played by the Cowboys to short change the Giants on a player they may have wanted to have hang around the team, and to help them gather some information on a team they can’t beat in their own building.

Stay tuned for more practice squad and waiver wire news as it becomes available.

    Why with the LB signings? Yes our special teams sucks but our guard and DT situation is much more urgent. Those picks aren’t helping us now

    I thought the Bosworth cut was easily the most surprising. He looked fantastic in the pre-season and brought some much needed grit to the linebacking group. He also wasn’t practice squad eligible, so by letting him go they knew he was a goner. While I could see the theory that Dallas is pulling a move like the Redskins did with Andre Woodson a couple of a years ago, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him stick. They actually only kept 5 linebackers, like the Giants, so they had room to add one.
