ARLINGTON, Texas -- Jerry Jones made no promises about Sam Hurd’s job security after the preseason finale.
As was the case with Patrick Crayton, Jones said complimentary things about Hurd but basically acknowledged that both receivers are on the bubble and their seven-figure salaries could be a factor in the decision.
It wouldn’t be surprising if either receiver ended up in Miami if they’re cut by the Cowboys.
Dolphins coach Tony Sparano, a former Cowboys play-caller, made sure to mention Hurd when asked about Miami cornerback Sean Smith. Hurd beat Smith, a starter, for a 43-yard touchdown early in the second quarter.
“I know that receiver on the other side that caught the ball over Sean’s head,” Sparano said. “I know what he’s capable of. You would tell me he’s a backup, but I know what the guy’s about.”
