The last of the unemployed, over-the-hill, objects-in-rear-view-mirror-are-farther-away-than-they-appear receivers could be moving closer to getting a job.
Steve Wyche of NFL Network reported Thursday that the Cowboys have had “preliminary discussions” with agent Drew Rosenhaus regarding receiver Plaxico Burress. Wyche characterizes the talks as “exploratory,” with no signing imminent.
A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the Cowboys have Burress “high on their list” in the event of an injury.
In other words, the only way anything would happen is if Miles Austin or Dez Bryant or whoever emerges as the No. 3 receiver get injured. (Then again, Austin already is.)
Of course, it’s also possible that a need will arise if Dez Bryant gets in trouble again — and if owner Jerry Jones meant what he said when he said last week on The Dan Patrick Show that the team will move on if Dez doesn’t step up off the field.
