Cowboys re-sign WR Kevin Ogletree
By Calvin Watkins
The Dallas Cowboys re-signed wide receiver Kevin Ogletree on Friday.
Ogletree, a New York native, visited the New York Giants on Wednesday.
It's a surprise in some ways considering Ogletree lost the No. 3 receiver spot to Laurent Robinson last year and didn't play in the regular-season finale despite being active.
Ogletree will compete with Dwayne Harris, Andre Holmes and Raymond Radway for the No. 3 receiver spot.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett was asked about the receiving corps during a conference call with reporters on Wednesday and spoke about Ogletree challenging the younger receivers if he made the roster in 2012.
Ogletree finished the 2011 season with just 15 catches for 164 yards and no touchdowns. He also returned two punts for 35 yards and fielded six kick returns for 114 yards.
The Cowboys most likely will include Ogletree in the return game rotation in 2012 as another way for him to make the team.
