Report: Cowboys shopping a wide receiver
Roy Williams’ place in Dallas is secure after the Cowboys traded up to draft Dez Bryant on Thursday night.
That doesn’t mean there will not be some turnover at the position. Sam Hurd can be had. Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas reports that the Cowboys put the versatile performer on the market Thursday night and they will entertain offers. He’s a restricted free agent who already signed his tender offer with the club.
Hurd has been a standout player on special teams but would like a more prominent role on offense. That is not going to happen now, not with Williams, Bryant, Miles Austin, Patrick Crayton and Kevin Ogletree ahead of him, among others.
Maybe the Cowboys can make a minor deal with the Kansas City Chiefs. After all, coach Todd Haley is familiar with Hurd from his time in Dallas. The Chiefs certainly have needs at receiver and every team can use a boost on special teams.
