SAN ANTONIO (AP) Kevin Ogletree is getting his chance in training camp to be the Dallas Cowboys’ third receiver.
Ogletree knows every play counts during camp, so he says he’s keeping his head down and working to ensure his spot.
Two years ago, Ogletree was the only undrafted rookie to make the Dallas roster. But he got overshadowed last season after Dez Bryant was selected in the first round of the draft and responded with a standout performance.
Ogletree got hurt the first game after Bryant broke his ankle in December. But with Roy Williams gone, Bryant is a starter with Miles Austin and Ogletree gets another chance to move up the depth chart.
Coach Jason Garrett says Ogletree has the ability to beat NFL cornerbacks when he’s covered but has to be more consistent.
