Undrafted Free Agent, 2011
No starts in NFL
Kevin Kowalski sat out the 2013 season after being cut by the Cowboys just prior the start of the season. He had suffered an ankle injury during 2012 that caused him to miss the entire season. On January 8, 2014, the Redskins signed Kowalski to a futures contract. That means that the Redskins control his rights in the offseason. He is allowed to participate in team workouts and practices during the offseason. However he is not guaranteed a spot on the 53-man roster. Good coaching should go a long way with this guy. His two-year absence from football is a big issue
Kowalski will probably be on the bubble. If he has a decent offseason, he has a good chance to make the team. At 6' 3" and 298 lbs, he has the size for the position. The only other offensive lineman listed at center is Kory Lichtensteiger. The offensive line needs as much depth as possible. Kowalski is the only other lineman on the 90-man roster listed at center. That should increase his chances to make the roster. Being out for two years is a big hurdle to overcome, however.
While at Toledo, Kevin started 47 straight games at either Right guard or center. His middle name is Victor. His parents are Joe and Pat Kowalski. Sounds like they are still married.
