Dallas Cowboys Win for Losing Kevin Ogletree
Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Kevin Ogletree has signed a two-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the entire Cowboys fan base should be doing back flips. The signing reunites him with Cowboys offensive coach John Garrett, who left for Tamp Bay a few weeks ago.
Finally the Cowboys have seen something positive in free agency and it has nothing to do with signing a player. The Cowboys are the big winners for losing Ogletree, who never developed like the team had hoped. The longer Ogletree stuck around, the better the chances were that the Cowboys might have re-signed him, so thankfully the Buccaneers struck first.
The Cowboys had believed in Ogletree for four seasons but he never rewarded them for their faith. In four years with the Cowboys Ogletree tallied just 57 catches, for 730 yards and four touchdowns, all of which came last season. Those numbers are not good enough to be a third wide receiver in the NFL and the Cowboys should be happy to get rid of Ogletree’s “potential.”
There have been plans for the past two seasons to make Ogletree the third receiver for the Cowboys but he never played consistent enough football to be trusted. The Cowboys have much better options in Dwayne Harris, who came on late in the season, and Cole Beasley, so there is no need to slow their growth by keeping Ogletree around. Dallas also drafted Danny Coale in the fifth round last year and like his potential.
Kevin Ogletree’s time in Dallas is finally up and the Cowboys have rid themselves of a player who never worked out the way they thought. Jason Garrett has the ‘next man up’ philosophy and Cowboys fans everywhere should be rejoicing at their options.
