Phil Costa (born July 11, 1987) is an American football center and guard for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League (NFL). He was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Cowboys after he went undrafted in the 2010 NFL Draft.
Costa signed with the Dallas Cowboys after he was not drafted in the 2010 NFL Draft. He was the 4th string center, with Kyle Kosier and Travis Bright ahead of him, but when Kosier got hurt and Bright struggled, Costa became the primary backup center. He impressed the coaching staff and made the opening day 53-man roster.
He performed well during the 2011 training camp and preseason, before suffering a strained right posterior cruciate ligament on August 24, 2011. After contract restructuring negotiations fell through, five time Pro Bowl center Andre Gurode was cut before the fourth preseason game in 2011, and Costa became the starting center.
