According to ESPN Dallas, Cowboys Owner/GM Jerry Jones suggested that Andre Holmes has the inside track to be the Cowboys’ #3 receiver. Behind starters Dez Bryant and Miles Austin, the Cowboys lack any proven depth having lost Laurent Robinson in the offseason. Bryant and Austin have histories of injury problems, so that could be a problem.
Holmes is competing with Kevin Ogletree, who struggled last year when counted on, as well as 2011 6th round pick Dwayne Harris and 2012 5th round pick Danny Coale. Holmes was undrafted out of Hillsdale in 2011 and spent last year on the practice squad. He has ideal size at 6-5 223 and could remind some of Miles Austin, a 2006 undrafted free agent out of Monmouth who has become one of the league’s better receivers. Either way, the Cowboys shouldn’t be confident in their wide receiver depth.
