OGLETREE GETS ANOTHER SHOT AT WIDE RECEIVER NO.3 IN DALLAS
Wed, 06 Jun 2012 12:58 PM EDT

There must be something the Dallas Cowboys like about wide receiver Kevin Ogletree. Football scores

He was placed to become the No. 3 WR last season till some guy named Laurent Robinson stole the show. Robinson finished with 54 catches for 854 yards and 11 touchdowns. He caught a touchdown in 5 sequential games. That’s 7 in 5 weeks.

When plays broke down, quarterback Tony Romo sought Robinson’s abilities to scramble away from defenders and get to open spots on the field to make plays.

In the offseason, Robinson agreed a 5-year $32.5 million agreement with the Jacksonville Jaguars with $13.8 million guaranteed. The Cowboys failed to make him a big offer mainly because they would not have been able to allot resources to the other needs on the team.

Robinson was thought of highly around Valley Ranch, and Coach Jason Garrett called him to intend him luck after he signed with Jacksonville.

Which brings us back to Ogletree.

He was on the free-agent market also, but with so few takers for his services, he’s back with the Cowboys trying to win a gig he lost last year.

Robinson caught more passes in 2011 than Ogletree had in his career (25).

But Ogletree has a second possibility.

The candidates for the No. 3 spot are Andre Holmes, Danny Coale, Dwayne Harris, Raymond Radway and Ogletree. Wide receivers coach Jimmy Robinson said if nobody emerges, then it’s going to be a committee to ascertain playing time.

Last year, there were no committees.

It was all Robinson as Ogletree watched. Ogletree finished the season with fifteen catches for 164 yards and no touchdowns. He has no touchdowns in his 3-year career. It needed to be humbling to observe the regular-season curtain call at the N.Y Giants as an active player and not play.

“It was very good for me and that was beneficial for our team at that time,” Ogletree expounded of Robinson’s play.” (It) just opened my eyes to a large amount of things. As far as using those moments, they’re valuable. No bad feelings in relation to that. I just understand how to do the job.”

Ogletree’s world flipped on him days after the season finished when his brother, Calvin Ogletree, was shot in the head in N.Y. Ogletree, a Queens’s local was on a flight home when it occurred.

His brother is still recovering and the investigation is ongoing.

Of course Ogletree realizes the significance of finding out who shot his brother, but recovery is nearly as important given the shock Calvin Ogletree experienced.

Kevin Ogletree’s career with the Cowboys has given fans few moments to recollect. His largest moment was against New Orleans in 2009, when he caught only 2 passes for 23 yards, all in the 2nd half. Although it was Jerry Jones’ pregame talk with Ogletree at midfield in the Superdome that night reminding everybody just how crucial some individuals in the organization think Ogletree is.

“It’s a chance,” Ogletree said of the No. 3 receiver position. “Something that’s in front of me and it’s going to be a great thing for me to take advantage of.”
