Phillips:Right tackle Marc Colombo, in terms of breaking the bank. Once labeled an injury risk, Colombo has shored up what used to be a problematic position for the Cowboys by starting all 32 games over the past two years. But he needs another strong season to earn a long-term deal and fend off the team's young tackles.
Phillips: With or without Terry Glenn, the Cowboys need their young wide receivers to step up. Sam Hurd, Miles Austin and Isaiah Stanback all are battling for more reps this season, which should produce some exciting practices in Oxnard.
