The Dallas Cowboys are expected to release Miles Austin and his worn down hamstrings this offseason, leaving a void on the roster for a veteran wide receiver (not including Dez Bryant).
Terrence Williams is expected to start opposite Bryant with Austin likely out of the way, the Cowboys will need some depth.
Perhaps there’s a chance he comes back at a lower rate, but I can see the Cowboys drafting a receiver or going after a low-paid veteran in free agency on a short-term deal. The guy I have in mind is Robert Meachem.
It’s doubtful Meachem, who most recently played for the New Orleans Saints, would rank any higher than fourth on the Cowboys depth chart and his deal would likely be non-guaranteed. Still, the Cowboys could do worse than the 29-year-old who, in limited playing time hauled in 16 catches and two touchdowns this past season.
