Cowboys VP: Receiver Not a Pressing Need

Stephen Jones is confident in the Cowboys receiving corps as it stands now



    With Miles Austin gone and Terrance Williams stepping into the No. 2 spot, some have wondered whether the Cowboys need to go out and get some receiver help either in free agency or the mid- to late-rounds of the draft in May.

    Executive vice president Stephen Jones says this isn’t necessarily the case.

    "We were very pleased with Terrance. As you know, Miles--his play time was limited last year once again, because of injuries. I thought, this time, guys stepped up," Jones told the team's official website. "We played solid offensive football. Guys like Terrance Williams, (Gavin) Escobar and Cole Beasley are only going to get better. So I don't see that as big an issue as a lot of people might think it is for us."

    In his rookie season, Williams had 44 catches for 736 yards and five touchdowns, his emergence making the team’s decision on Austin a lot easier than it might have been otherwise.
