Linebacker Kyle Bosworth, one of the more surprising cuts by the Giants on Saturday, will get a chance to face his former team on Opening Night after he was claimed off waivers on Sunday by the Dallas Cowboys.

Bosworth, nephew of “The Boz” (Brian Bosworth), excelled on special teams for the Giants over the summer and was in a battle with veteran Aaron Curry for the sixth linebacker spot. In the end, though, the Giants elected to go with only five linebackers on their 53-man roster.

The position that we are in, that makes me want to be out there… If there was anything less than what we got a chance of, I would have went ahead and got surgery.

If it weren’t for the whole beating his mom thing, I’d say, that’s one classy guy.

“This is a mediocre team with some talented pieces that’s trying its best to stay relevant through December.”
During the bye week, the Cowboys have started the process of trying to fill their open roster spot by working out former SMU cornerback Bryan McCann on Thursday. (via Cowboys work out former SMU DB Bryan McCann - Dallas Cowboys Blog - ESPN Dallas)

Maybe they should be working out Stephen McGee instead…
