NEW YORK (CBS SPORTS) – The Dallas Cowboys have a ton of talent, and much of it is at wide receiver. There’s just one problem — a lot of their wideouts are not sure things. Dez Bryant has… issues. Miles Austin is currently dealing with a hamstring injury. So, perhaps Dallas will head out and take a look at a veteran wideout.

That wideout could end up being Plaxico Burress, if the ‘Boys can’t develop enough depth behind Austin and Bryant before the season begins.

“We’ve got some guys,” Stephen Jones said. “When all is said and done, we may not need anybody. But at some point, a veteran receiver is someone we might want to look at, a slot type receiver as well. Plaxico has some really great highlights in his career. With a guy like him, it would mean you move Miles into the slot when you go with three.”

“I wouldn’t totally rule out Plaxico at some point if he’s still there when we work through our evaluation process with the guys here,” Jones added.

The Cowboys are aren’t in dire straits — yet — when it comes to wideout help, but a very talented position could suddenly turn into a weakness if Bryant struggles, Austin is hurt and Laurent Robinson is not walking through that door.
