IRVING, Texas – As much as the Cowboys liked Laurent Robinson's team- and career-high 11 touchdowns last season, they weren't going to pay $6-plus million per year for their No. 3 receiver – often their *fourth *option in the passing game when factoring in tight end Jason Witten.
So, what now?
Behind starters Miles Austin and Dez Bryant – who both missed time with injuries in 2011 – the Cowboys have unproven but talented wideouts Dwayne Harris, Andre Holmes and Raymond Radway. They did not offer an exclusive rights contract to Jesse Holley, nor Kevin Ogletree, who reportedly visited the Giants on Thursday but did not sign. Thursday morning, Garrett said Ogletree still was "in the conversation."
Whether or not he returns, executive vice president Stephen Jones indicated the Cowboys would continue to look at the free agent landscape and perhaps the draft.
"You never rule out getting better," Jones said. "I will say this: We're very comfortable with the young players we have coming. Andre Holmes, Radway, Harris, those are guys who have a bright future with us. Yet, we still have other ways we can acquire talent.
"We're always looking to better ourselves, if that opportunity presents itself at any position. Things will continue to present themselves in terms of the opportunities that may exist out there."
