Source: Cowboys willing to deal Hurd
By Calvin Watkins
IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys will entertain offers for backup wide receiver Sam Hurd, a source said Thursday night.
Hurd, who led the Cowboys with 19 special teams tackles in 2009, hasn't developed as quickly as a receiver. Last season, he caught just seven passes for 121 yards with one touchdown.
As of now, the Cowboys' depth chart has Miles Austin, Roy Williams, Patrick Crayton, Kevin Ogletree, Manuel Johnson, Jesse Holley and Hurd.
The issue is that Hurd wants to play on offense more, and that might not happen with the Cowboys drafting Dez Bryant.
