Bringing Robinson Back a Priority, Not Likely



    The Dallas Cowboys lucked out in a couple of ways this season. Felix Jones got hurt and that brought on the starting debut of rookie running back DeMarco Murray, who showed tons of promise that he can be a feature back in the future.

    When Miles Austin and Dez Bryant both suffered injuries early in the season, the Cowboys took to the NFL scrap heap and found Laurent Robinson.

    Robinson was arguably the most reliable wide receiver for the Cowboys this season, catching 54 balls for 858 yards and 11 touchdowns.

    Wide receivers that catch 11 touchdown passes and go on the free agent market aren't a dime a dozen, and Robinson will command some pretty decent dollars from other NFL teams as a 26-year-old.

    Conventional wisdom would say it's a no-brainer, the Cowboys need to do all they can to bring back Robinson, but can you afford to pay the kind of money he'll command for a guy that ideally would be your No. 3 receiver? That's as much of a question as it is an indictment on what Dez Bryant and Miles Austin did this season.
