IRVING, Texas --With an Anthony Spencer decision looming and the possibility of pursuing top cornerback help, it'll be interesting when and if the Cowboys address unrestricted free agent Laurent Robinson.
Robinson is their most important decision after Spencer, and this stat shows just how consistent he was as the No. 3 receiver last season: He was one of six players in Cowboys history to catch a touchdown in at least five straight games.
Frank Clarke, 7, 1961-62
Bob Hayes, 7, 1965-66
Terrell Owens, 7, 2007
Frank Clarke, 6, 1963
Bob Hayes, 6, 1966-67
Michael Irvin, 6, 1995
Jason Witten, 5, 2010
Laurent Robinson, 5, 2011
When Robinson signed a minimum salary benefit contract in September, he had four touchdown catches in four seasons with Atlanta and St. Louis. He had 11 in 2011.
Due to the nature of Robinson's contract, the Cowboys can speak with Robinson's camp now but can't finalize a deal until March 13. His market value could rise a little with several top free agent wideouts unlikely to hit the market. DeSean Jackson got the franchise tag Thursday, and Wes Welker, Dwayne Bowe, Stevie Johnson and Vincent Jackson could all be next.
The Cowboys don't have a clear replacement for Robinson, though, unless you agree with Jerry Jones' suggestion last week that undrafted receiver Andre Holmes could step up in 2012.
