Former Buff Andre Gurode Released By Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys released center Andre Gurode on Monday after they were unable to rework his contract over the weekend. Gurode had made the last five Pro Bowls as a center for the Cowboys, but now the Lonestar helmets will no longer have him anchoring the center of the line.

Gurode is coming off knee surgery, which has limited him, and he is playing 2011 as a 33-year-old. However, the Denver Broncos might do themselves good by signing Gurode. J.D. Walton is the starter, but there are enough ways to say that he isn't a rock solid option there as Tom Nalen had been in the past. Plus, the Broncos do need depth at center. The backups there are currently second-stringer Manny Ramirez and third-stringer Jeff Byers.

And let's not forget that Gurode would be returning to Colorado since he had a standout career as part of the Colorado Buffaloes football team. He was the anchor of that offensive line that went to the 2002 Rose Bowl. The Cowboys then nabbed him in the second round of the 2002 NFL Draft with the 37th overall pick.
