Dallas Cowboys Rumors: Plaxico Burress Talks With Team?

With the Cowboys a bit hobbled and uncertain about who Tony Romo is supposed to throw the ball to this season, Plaxico Burress' name has come up as a possible free agent pickup.

The former Super Bowl champion is without a job this season, so preliminary discussions with his agent Drew Rosenhaus and the Cowboys have already taken place, according to Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas.

Team executive vice president Stephen Jones told KTBB-FM in Tyler, Texas on Thursday, that the team "wouldn't totally rule out Plaxico at some point." But there are conflicting reports, as Jerry Jones also told Watkins that he's happy with his backup wide receivers.

Burress could fill in a number of roles for the Cowboys, who could use an upgrade at No. 3 wide receiver after losing Laurent Robinson to the Jaguars over the offseason. With Miles Austin suffering with hamstring issues, and Dez Bryant being Dez, it wouldn't hurt Dallas to look into this.

Then, of course, the team has to decide if they want a wide receiving core of Bryant, Burress and a one-legged Miles Austin.
