Tony Romo likes the current wide receivers

4/21/2010

There are rumors swirling that the Cowboys want to draft a wide receiver.

Well, quarterback Tony Romo likes what the team already has at the position. And Jerry Jones, the owner/general manager, said its doubtful the team will pick one.

"I've been saying it for a few years now, we're pretty deep at the receiver positon," Romo said after a round of golf on Tuesday. "Say what you want about 1,2,3,4, whoever makes our team I'm very comfortable with going one-to-five."

Of course, Romo is relaxed with Miles Austin, the leading receiver of the team, but there is Roy E. Williams, who has struggled to catch on with the quarterback.

Romo said he and Williams are developing chemistry at a faster rate than last year.

Patrick Crayton, who sometimes gets forgotten about around here, is valued around Valley Ranch to the point where some teams have called about a trade, but Dallas declines to trade him.

Also, Sam Hurd, who enters his fifth season, is getting pushed by Kevin Ogletree on the depth chart. Then there's Manuel Johnson and Jesse Holley, who served practice squad time last year.

Romo said he's very comforable with Hurd, who is improving.

At the same time, the Cowboys could be in the market for a wideout in the draft. Dez Bryant is rumored to be falling down to No. 27 and if that's the case, the Cowboys have a decision to make. However, Dallas could move up in the first round and get a safety, a position of need.

Jones was asked if the Cowboys would make a move for a Bryant or another highly rated wide receiver.

"That's unlikely because I like where we are at receiver and so ... unlikely," he said. "And I'm not defining whether it's unlikely one that would slip is unlikely to slip, or whether I'm likely to do it if he slips. Seriously, I'm having a play with words here, but I don't think that's likely, in my opinion."
