Doug Cosbie was born March 27, 1956 in Palo Alto, California and is a former professional football player in the National Football League who was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the third round of the 1979 NFL Draft. A 6'6", 236-lb. tight end from Santa Clara University, Cosbie played his entire NFL career for the Cowboys from 1979 to 1988. He was a three-time Pro Bowl selection from 1983 to 1985.

Cosbie was selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the third round of the 1979 NFL Draft. That year, the Cowboys were placed in the third round just ahead of the San Francisco 49ers. The Cowboys' draft strategy through that time was to take the highest-ranked player on their draft board, regardless of position. When the Cowboys' turn came up in the third round, the highest rated player on their board was Joe Montana. However, feeling that the quarterback position was in excellent shape with Roger Staubach and Danny White, and needing a tight end, the Cowboys went off their strategy and drafted Cosbie. The 49ers ended selecting Montana.

By his third season in Dallas, he was sharing the starting tight end spot with Billy Joe DuPree and eventually replaced him in 1982.

Although he was an effective blocker, he became more of a receiving threat than any previous Cowboys tight end. He caught over 60 passes in a season twice during his career, and set team records for a tight end with catches and yards per season and career, which have since been broken by Jay Novacek and Jason Witten. In 1988, he lost his starting job due to surgery on his Achilles Tendon.

Cosbie caught 300 passes for 3,728 yards and 30 touchdowns and also had 22 catches for 243 yards and 3 touchdowns in 7 playoff games. He still ranks seventh in franchise history in receptions. He made three straight Pro Bowls from 1983 to 1985. In 1985, he was named to the UPI All-Pro NFC team.

He is part of the Cowboys franchise's legacy of great tight ends that includes: Jim Doran, Lee Folkins, Pettis Norman, Mike Ditka, Billy Joe DuPree, Jackie Smith, Jay Novacek and Jason Witten.

In 1989, he was left unprotected by the Cowboys in Plan B free agency and signed with the Denver Broncos. He decided to retire during training camp that season, after playing for 10 years in the NFL and also in three NFC Championship games.
