    According to ESPNDallas.com, an unnamed source mentioned on Thursday night the the Dallas Cowboys will listen to offers for receiver and special teams ace Sam Hurd.

    Of course, Dallas traded up from the 27th selection to leapfrog the Baltimore Ravens and snag former Oklahoma State wide receiver Dez Bryant. The selection raised many questions concerning the Dallas receiving corps, and, with the addition of Bryant--a potentially premier receiver--it would seem that something has to give.

    That 'something' just may be Sam Hurd, whose development as a receiver has been slowed by injury and circumstance (the emergence of Miles Austin, etc). He is an adroit special teams player--recording a team-high 19 ST tackles in 2009--but, reportedly, would like to see his chances as a receiver increase.

    Given that he caught just seven passes for 121 yards and a touchdown last season--on a Cowboys team without a Dez Bryant--this seems doubtful.

    That is, the deal would make sense for Dallas.

    Currently, the Cowboys' receiving corps consists of Miles Austin, Roy Williams, Patrick Crayton, Kevin Ogletree and Hurd, as well as practice squad members Jesse Holley and Manuel Johnson.
