Watching shaky i-phone video clips of training camp and hearing various media outlets sing the praises of the young Dallas Cowboys wide receiver core may cause you to believe Owner Jerry Jones, the front office, and the coaching staff are all satisfied with staying “in-house” when it comes to finding that coveted third wideout. I believe nothing could be further from the truth.
Don’t believe me? Here’s the real mental test for that theory. Say starting receiver Dez Bryant is suspended for his alleged domestic violence incident. (which could still happen) And let’s just say the other starting receiver, Miles Austin, tweaks a hamstring (which has already happened). And now you have to fill two vacancies, not for the third wideout slot, but for both starters.
