On Friday, the Dallas Cowboys released wide receiver Danny Coale, a fifth round pick in the 2012 Draft. Thought of initially as a young receiver with a huge upside and a very real chance to make the team (and maybe even make a push for the team’s vacant No. 3 receiver job), Coale suffered a fractured foot on the first day of organized team activities (OTAs).
After that, according to owner and general manager Jerry Jones, the Virginia Tech product didn’t have the time to leave a lasting impression on the Dallas staff--particularly as part of a receiving corps that the team seems to think is pretty deep.
“He just hasn’t had enough time to really establish (himself) in a position that we really have numbers in,” Jones said of Coale today in an appearance on 1310 The Ticket, via ESPN Dallas. “We’ve got good numbers there. That has something to do with it. It has something to do with it that he just wasn’t able to really establish himself in any way because he’s had every few reps.”
As it stands, Dallas will go into the season with six receivers: Miles Austin, Dez Bryant, Kevin Ogletree, Cole Beasley, Dwayne Harris and Andre Holmes.
