In John Clayton's latest mailbag
, a reader asks him whether the Dallas Cowboys
need to be looking for a veteran wide receiver due to Dez Bryant
's recent arrest. This is John's answer:
The answer is yes but they don't have to move quickly. If Bryant is suspended, the Cowboys would be devastated at wide receiver. It's the same thing if Austin suffers an injury. They have only two legitimate wide receivers unless you believe totally in Kevin Ogletree. That said, I think they will be wide receiver shopping during camp. Laurent Robinson was the perfect No. 3 wide receiver, but he snagged more than $6 million a year from the Jaguars this offseason. The Cowboys need to find another Laurent Robinson.
I think John has it right. Just because Bryant is a question mark due to potential suspension doesn't change the fact that the Cowboys shouldn't have outbid the Jaguars for Robinson. They plucked Robinson off the wide receiver scrap heap last summer, and he became one of the surprise stories of the year.
