Cowboys rewarded for European participation

Bergen Record


"The Giants are checking out the two veteran offensive tackles released Wednesday, Marcus Spears (Kansas City) and Greg Randall (San Francisco). Spears, 32, an 11-year veteran, may prove to be more valuable because he has played every spot along the offensive line but center."
