Professional career[edit]

Dallas Cowboys[edit]

Kowalski was signed by the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent on July 26, after not being selected in the 2011 NFL Draft.[3] On September 18, he replaced an injured Phil Costa in the fourth quarter against the San Francisco 49ers, contributing to an overtime win. On October 16, he replaced an injured Bill Nagy against the New England Patriots. On December 11, against the New York Giants, he replaced an injured Phil Costa in the second quarter. On January 1, he replaced an injured Kyle Kosier against the New York Giants.

He started the 2012 season on the Cowboys' physically unable to perform list with an ankle injury.[4] He was placed on the active roster on November 17 and was dressed for three games, but also declared inactive in three others.[5]

In the 2013 training camp, he was tried at offensive guard and fullback, but a bruised knee limited his playing time before being waived on August 31.

Washington Redskins[edit]

On January 8, 2014, the Washington Redskins signed Kowalski to a futures contract.[6] He was released during final cuts on August 29.[7]
