Play of the Day: Kevin Ogletree's catch
By Tim MacMahon
SAN ANTONIO – Kevin Ogletree has had a slight case of the dropsies recently, but he made a clean catch of a Jon Kitna deep ball during Thursday’s practice.
Ogletree read the coverage to determine that he would run a corner route instead of a post, and Kitna put the ball on the money, probably his best throw of camp so far. Safety Danny McCray had no chance to catch Ogletree, who raced into the end zone for the touchdown.
The play offered a reminder of Ogletree’s big-play potential. He’s the Cowboys’ fastest receiver with 4.36 speed, and coach Wade Phillips said his route-running ability reminds him of ex-Cowboy Terry Glenn.
“I told him to stay consistent,” receivers coach Ray Sherman said. “You don’t want to be a guy who does something well then get a couple plays then you are doing something else, you want to be consistent.”
