HOMECOMING: Kyle Bosworth childhood dream to be a Dallas Cowboy

America's Team - Every boy should love the Dallas Cowboys - The Boys Are Back blog 2012

IRVING – Kyle Bosworth grew up dreaming of playing for the Dallas Cowboys.

On Sunday, the linebacker’s dream was realized when the Cowboys claimed him off waivers from the New York Giants.

“I’m really excited to be here, really happy with how everything turned out, and I’m just ready to do everything I can for this team to make it a championship team,” Bosworth, a Plano West graduate who idolized Dat Nguyen as a youngster, said Monday.

Bosworth said being cut by the Giants on Saturday “was definitely a low.” But, thanks to the Cowboys, his sadness didn’t last long.

“I’ve never been released before, so it was definitely a low,” the fourth-year pro said. “I had a moment where it just wasn’t going right, and a couple of hours late I got a call from my agent saying the Cowboys picked me up off of waivers, and that turned it around.

“So, it was definitely a very, very low to high quick, like a lighting bolt.”

Bosworth got picked up mainly for his skills as a special teams performer, something he said he has no problem with.

“That’s what I’ve doing every year since I’ve been in the league,” he said. “I know I’m very good at special teams and I know I’m a really good backer…I can be utilized on special teams right away, no problem. And I absolutely have no problem with that, I love it. I’m definitely looking forward to it.”

Another reason Dallas signed Bosworth is he might be able to provide inside skinny on what New York is up to. Asked if quarterback Tony Romo has talked to him about what the Giants are planning for the season opener, Bosworth said, “Yeah, we’ve talked about it a little bit, but not too much. I’m sure that’s for later.”
