David Buehler K NYG Jan 30 '12
Escalators have pushed Cowboys K David Buehler's 2012 salary from $565,000 to $1.26 million.
It's a lot to pay a kickoff specialist coming off hip surgery. Buehler has been a Jerry Jones favorite since Dallas drafted him in the 2009 fifth round, but he's become expendable after Dan Bailey nailed 32-of-37 field goal tries as a rookie in 2011. Buehler seems likely to be waived before the season.
