The Cowboys will meet with New York Giants line coach Mike Solari, according to sources. While there was some interest in Tom Cable, it never got to a point where interview was set up before he joined Oakland's staff. Former Cincinnati line coach Paul Alexander met with the Cowboys in the middle of the week.

Jonathan Cooper, who started 13 games at left guard for the Cowboys in 2017, had knee surgery last week. He sprained the medial collateral ligament in the season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles. Cooper is set to be an unrestricted free agent but he should be ready for a part of an offseason program wherever he signs.

Cowboys' Martin (elbow) missing Pro Bowl

Cowboys right guard Zack Martin will miss the Pro Bowl in Orlando after his cleanup surgery on his right elbow. Teammate Tyron Smith is also likely to miss the all-star game with several injuries.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Pro Bowl right guard Zack Martin had cleanup surgery on his right elbow that will keep him out of the all-star game but not from the start of the offseason program. Defensive tackle Maliek Collins also had surgery on his left foot, which had bothered him for most of the season. He had a similar surgery on his right foot prior to his rookie season and rebounded without any issue.
