The Dallas Cowboys have had preliminary talks with Paxico Burress' agent about the possibility of signing Burress, who's a free agent, ESPNDallas.com reported Thursday. The Cowboys are considering adding a veteran wide receiver, so they contacted Drew Rosenhaus, Burress' agent, according to the report. Team executive vice president Stephen Jones did not dismiss the report, telling KTBB-FM in Tyler, Texas, on Thursday that the team "wouldn't totally rule out Plaxico at some point." Burress, 34, played in 17 games for the Jets last season, including 16 starts. He caught 45 passes for 612 yards and eight touchdowns. He did not play in 2009 and 2010 after being sentenced to two years in prison for violating gun laws in New York. He was released three months early for good behavior.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones wasn't holding back Friday morning. The interviews at training camp aren't always the most revealing but this was one of the exceptions.
Jones somewhat surprisingly admitted that he's disappointed with the team's top draft pick, Morris Claiborne, who has been sidelined with injuries for most of the offseason.
Here we go again with Kevin Ogletree. This guy seems to remain at the top spot for the number three receiver position every year for the past 4 seasons.
Why? In my opinion he has done nothing to prove he’s even worth remaining on the team, let alone earn the three spot. There’s a reason the Cowboys went and signed veteran Laurent Robinson last year, and there’s a reason...
According to receivers coach Jimmy Robinson, Kevin Ogletree is the leading candidate for the No. 3 receiver role in Dallas.Fantasy Spin:Given Miles Austin's injury-prone status, picking Ogletree could be a valuable late-round selection.
