Dallas Cowboys No. 3 wide receiver Kevin Ogletree was a breakout star early in the 2012 NFL season, but he cooled off as the season progressed and is now headed for free agency.
While the Cowboys need to find a reliable slot receiver, the team is not expected to make an effort to bring Ogletree back next season.
According to Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News:
The Cowboys are still looking for a consistent option at the No. 3 receiver position. Ogletree is a free agent and the Cowboys aren’t expected to make much effort to keep him. Jones likes Harris, who should have an expanded role in the offense next season.
The Harris that Sabin references is Dwayne Harris, who also contributes in the return game. There has been the belief that Dallas will look to get Harris more involved in the passing game since last offseason, so this could be the year that Harris emerges as a serious threat as the team’s slot receiver.
Harris has very reliable hands and is a crisp route runner that will fit the role perfectly.
Another player that the team is very high on is Cole Beasley. It would not be a shock to see him fight for the No. 3 spot in camp.
