    Multiple teams around the league have inquired about veteran wide receiver Sam Hurd, Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning News reports.

    Hurd is a fairly talented veteran receiver and one of Dallas’s best special teams players, but he has expressed a desire to establish himself as a receiver--and considering the talent and depth of the Cowboys’ receiving corps as it stands now, this seems pretty unlikely. Which is to say, it's likely that Dallas will listen to any interested teams.

    He, as well as Patrick Crayton, asked for a trade this offseason shortly after the team selected Dez Bryant in the first round of April’s draft, but has since said that he wants to be in Dallas--but not necessarily if this means sacrificing a chance at seeing substantial time on offense.

    Archer named St. Louis--who recently lost their no. 1 receiver Donnie Avery to inury--and Kansas City, whose head coach, Todd Haley worked with Hurd in Dallas in 2006, as the team’s passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach, as possible destinations for Hurd.
