Biggs: Cowboys kick tires on CFL star

That didn’t take long.

When Shaun Suisham picked up with the Dallas Cowboys where he left off with the Washington Redskins—missing field goals he should have been making—it was only a matter of time before the Cowboys would get in the hunt for a new kicker.

Their search led them north of the border, and the Dallas Morning News reported that Sandro DeAngelis, the most accurate kicker in CFL history, had a tryout on Friday. It was a tryout that even owner Jerry Jones attended.

The Cowboys figured to be set long-term with Nick Folk, a former Pro Bowl performer, as their kicker. But he missed 10 field goals before losing his job and the Cowboys moved on to Suisham, a former Cowboy, and it didn’t get any better as the team finished with a 64.5 percent field goal percentage, a woeful number.

DeAngelis is a five-time West Division all-star with the Calgary Stampeders.
