Southlake's Brown returns home

The Cowboys were obviously sending a message to kicker David Buehler by signing veteran Kris Brown -- who went to Southlake Carroll -- to a two-year contract.

Brown, 34, is a 12-year veteran who has kicked for three teams. He has made 77.3 percent of his field-goal attempts, but his worst season came in 2009 when he made only 21 of 32 tries (65.6) for the Texans. That’s when his eight-year career in Houston ended.

Brown played in only three games this season, making 4-of-5 attempts for the Chargers when Nate Kaeding was injured.

Brown has been working out at Rice while waiting for a call.

“I’m excited,” Brown said. “I’m from this area. Growing up here most of my life and following the team and this organization. I’m excited as you can be.”
