OXNARD, Calif. Barring injury, Terrance Williams and Dwayne Harris will likely battle for the Dallas Cowboys' No. 3 wide receiver spot. Harris looked to be the front-runner for that role in January. The 25-year-old closed the 2012 season by making 17 catches for 222 yards and a touchdown in the final seven games.
But the Cowboys selected Williams in the third round of April's draft.
Why does Harris think they drafted a receiver so early?
"Miles Austin is getting old and they want to bring in young guys," Harris said Monday. "Dez Bryant is still young, T-Will is young, I'm young, and Miles, we don't know how long he's going to be here or how long he's going to last. But we're hoping for the best with Williams. That's my guy. And you got to bring in young guys. That's what this league is about."
At 29, Austin is the second-oldest receiver on the camp roster. The other receivers likely to get regular season playing time are all 25 or younger.
Harris has become Dallas' No. 1 punt ...
