OXNARD, Calif. -- Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said he's pleased with the club's backup wide receivers, even though executive vice president Stephen Jones told a radio station the team wouldn't rule out adding free agent Plaxico Burress.
The Cowboys have young, inexperienced receivers contending for the No. 3 position and are considering adding a veteran if no one emerges.
"We haven't even discussed that internally at all," Jerry Jones said regarding Burress. "It's not been discussed at any level in our organization one way or the other."
Jones said he hasn't spoken to Burress' agent, Drew Rosenhaus. Earlier Thursday, a source said the Cowboys were involved in preliminary discussions with the agent.
