Cowboys looking for a WR

Moderator: Football Moderators

That surprises me the Cowboys are looking for another WR. I just read that some undrafted rookie is making a huge splash in camp and has biddied up to TO and so on. Parcells was even praising the kid in a press conference. Now they bring in the joke that is Fred-EX?????

I really hope the Niners sign Freddy just so I can heckle all of my buddies who are whiner fans here in Cali....

Ugh, Fresca might take the cake. There's always Squirt. But I'll save Squirt for Maurice Drew.

Haha... funny analogy there. Why would Canada be interested in him either though?

Kelley Washington is on the trading block/chopping block....I don't expect Squirrel Man to make the final cut....He doesn't play special teams and Tab Perry/Bennie Brazell/Antonio Chatman can more than make up for him as the 4th WR....

And it's not like Kelley isn't talented, he is, Cincy is just starved for roster spots and he is one-dimensional....I could see him starting on at least 5-6 teams, he'd be the #3 in Dallas though....

So does that mean C. Henry is the legitimate #3 receiver in Cinci? He's not sentenced to any prison time? yet?

He hasn't been to trial for any of them yet....I wouldn't be surprised to see him miss some time this year, not jail time, suspension....

The guy has more natural ability than Chad....Chad knows it, but he wouldn't admit it....Both he and Carson went and campaigned to Coach Lewis to give Henry another shot....If they're willing to do that, I suppose I could as well, but we'll see....For what it's worth, he looked outstanding in the intersquad scrimmage....

I was wondering how he is still on their squad with all of the legal problems and likely suspension. I guess if Johnson and Carson both lobbied for him that could explain a lot. So much for Lewis bringing discipline -- show that in the NFL - if you have talent you can basically get away with anything.

On another note - if the Boys traded for Kelley Washington - likely with one of the surplus LB that they have -- what role would he play since he doesn' t do ST -- he would be the WR#4/5 and Parcells likes those positions to play ST -- that is why Terrance Copper is still around

That's exactly why Dallas won't trade for him. If you're a backup in Parcells' system you play special teams, period.
