Source: Cowboys cutting Phil Costa

The Dallas Cowboys are cutting veteran center Phil Costa today, according to a league source.

Costa was cut rather than accept a cut in pay.

Costa is a 6-foot-3, 302-pounder from Maryland.

He has started 20 of 26 career game, but started no games last season after the Cowboys drafted center Travis Frederick in the first round.

Costa started every game during the 2011 season.
