The Dallas Cowboys enter Week 7 with an underwhelming 3-3 record, and are in serious need of some help. The offense has been fine, but it hasn't nearly played up to expectations, which of course has led many to suggest that the team consider pursuing outside options.
But, at least one of the more obvious options seems to be off of the table. Despite the rumors, Jerry Jones has insisted that the Cowboys do not plan on signing disgraced wide receiver Antonio Brown anytime soon.
"I'm not speaking to Antonio," said Jones on 105.3 The Fan. "I'm not speaking to anybody, but I believe we would go with the depth we have."
It was former Dallas Cowboy Michael Irvin who first suggested that the team pick him up, but his situation just wouldn't be worth the trouble for the team. Brown has been combative with every team that he's joined this year, dealt with frostbitten feet, and that's not even mentioning the looming sexual assault allegations against him.
He'd be more of a nuisance than he's worth. It would no doubt take time to integrate him into the offensive scheme, and considering the talent that's still on the roster, they'd be better off gambling on them to make a resurgence.
The Cowboys might be desperate for help on offense, but they're not that desperate.
Brown will just have to look elsewhere if he wants to find work, because Jones and the Cowboys won't be opening up their doors for him this year.
