Cowboys will let Ogletree hit the market

Redskins' Atogwe breaks up a pass in the end zone intended for Cowboys' Ogletree in the second half of their NFL football game in Arlington Reuters

A year ago, the Cowboys were eyeballing receiver Kevin Ogletree as a potential slot receiver.  And that’s precisely what may have happened, until Laurent Robinson arrived on a one-year, bargain-basement deal and developed into Tony Romo’s favorite target.  (Other than, of course, a golf cup.)

Now, the Cowboys are prepared to let Ogletree walk away.  Per a league source, Ogletree has been informed that he won’t receive a restricted free agency tender.  Which means he’ll hit the market without limitation on March 13 at 4:00 p.m.

Ogletree joined the team as an undrafted free agent in 2009.  He appeared in 14 games with one start in 2011.  For the season, he caught 15 passes for 164 yards.

The move suggests that the Cowboys plan to keep Robinson, who will have to hit the market with Ogletree before he can re-sign.

    Lions should sign him and cut Burleson. Nate’s contract is overwhelming and keeping them from improving the rest of their roster. Either that or restructure it. Aka pay cut.

    It’s about time to let Tree go. Maybe he will work hard and make something of himself with another team. If Robinson can stay healthy we are really going to be balanced with Smith on the left and a good guard with him. Go Boys!!

    You would have thought being undrafted would have prompted this guy to work his butt off. He’s always had this arrogant sense of entitlement and never came close to developing into a reliable player. I would say best of luck I. The future… But really you’re an arrogant sloth who is a cancer to young players.

    Why does FA start at 4 pm? It can’t just start at 12:01 am?

    Hey, you leave Colt Brennan out of this!!!!! There’s a reason why he has a try-out coming up as a QB in the Lingerie Football League. Hail….

    Tree is garbage anyway. I’d rather they give his reps to Holmes, Radway, or Harris. Hopefully Ball gets the same message. CB or S…doesn’t matter, he needs to go.

    Every “backup” should be making the effort to be a starter. As soon as you see someone comfortable being a backup you should start looking for the replacement.

    That said, backups don’t need to make problems and complain about not being a starter. They just need to be making the effort to be a starter. Ogletree was content to be a backup.

    the remark of the favorite receiver or golf cup, was unnecessary.. people like Fioro makes me sick, they find a way to put some negative about a simple note. Hey Fioro, just accept the fact that you don’t like Romo, or maybe that you NEED to use this type of thing so people read your notes… you stink

    Tried of watching this guy not know the plays. When we played the skins at home he costed us a td by running the wrong route. Your a pro know the dam playbook. Sign Robinson again. We have such a talented team. Have faith in your quaterback cowboy fans, he’s better then you give him credit for. The guy is a winner just needs a little more time in the pocket, dont worry he’s going to bring us to the promised land.
