Cowboys work out former SMU punter

IRVING, Texas -- In Dan Bailey, the Dallas Cowboys believe they have one of the best kickers in the NFL. Punter Chris Jones earned the team’s special teams’ player of the week honor from the 31-7 win against the St. Louis Rams.

But the evaluation process never ends.

The Cowboys worked out former SMU kicker and punter Matt Szymanski on Thursday.

He spent time with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2012. In two years at SMU, Szymanski averaged a little more than 41 yards per punt, made 18 of 28 field goal attempts and had 20 touchbacks.
