Cowboys sign Kris Brown; Buehler may only kick off

IRVING, Texas (AP)—David Buehler might not be kicking extra points and field goals for the Dallas Cowboys.

Six days after Buehler missed an extra point in the final minutes of a 28-27 loss to Arizona, the Cowboys signed veteran Kris Brown . He could be used Sunday for the season finale against Philadelphia.

Brown played three years for Pittsburgh and the last eight for Houston. He was released in September and played a few games for San Diego. He's made 77.3 percent of his field goals over his career.

Buehler remains valuable to the Cowboys as a kickoff specialist. He set a club record for touchbacks last season, although his boots have suffered this year with his added duties on PATs and field goals.

He is 24 of 31 on field goals, including three misses from the 30s.
