Could Miles Austin Return?

Jason Garrett won't close the door on the possibility



    According to head coach Jason Garrett and executive president Stephen Jones, the Dallas Cowboys haven’t closed the door on the possibility of bringing veteran wide receiver Miles Austin back.

    The oft-injured Austin was designated a post-June 1 cut by the team after eight seasons back in March, a move much-inspired by the team’s financial issues. He went to the Pro Bowl twice in his time with Dallas and still holds the team’s single-game receiving record with a 250-yard effort against the Chiefs (in his first career start) in 2009.

    We love Miles Austin,” Garrett said, per the Dallas Morning News. “We really do. ... Miles has been a really good player for us and the economics of his situation really factored into the decision we made with him coupled with his injuries.”

    Meanwhile, Jones says he’s somewhat surprised Austin hasn’t been picked up by another team yet. He, like Garrett, left the door open for a potential reunion.

    “Player acquisition is 365 days a year,” Jones said. “It never stops.”
