Cowboys Hold Back On Naming No. 3 Receiver



    Unless the Cowboys intend on going out and landing a veteran in free agency, Kevin Ogletree will probably be Dallas’ no. 3 receiver in the regular season opener against the Jets in New York. But he’s not exactly running away with the title as of now, as evidenced by the coaches’ hesitance in naming him as such.

    "I don't think we're making any determinations or anointing anybody as anything yet beyond who our starters are,'' receivers coach Jimmy Robinson said, per the Dallas Morning News. "But I think Kevin is doing a good job and he's progressing. But there's a long way to go.''

    Ogletree was tied for a team high three catches in Sunday night’s loss to the San Diego Chargers, bringing his preseason numbers to five catches and 49 yards. A good showing thus far, but Robinson wasn’t gushing with praise when discussing the performance.

    "Kevin did okay,'' he said. "There were plenty of things he needs to improve on. He made a couple of plays, ran some routes where he got open, did a nice job on the quick throw he caught off the run action.''
