Dallas Cowboys Offseason 2012: Wide Receivers Are Battling For No. 3 Spot

Training camp for the Dallas Cowboys will likely decide who fills in the No. 3 wide receiver spot behind Miles Austin and Dez Bryant. There's Kevin Ogletree, Andre Holmes, Raymond Radway, Danny Coale and Dwayne Harris are all vying for the remaining wide receiver roles.

Three undrafted rookies will also further the competition in training camp; Donavon Kemp, Tim Benford and Saalim Hakim. Last week during the Boys' final minicamp practice session, Harris seemed to be embracing the challenge:

"It's going to be tough," he said. "Everybody wants a roster spot. Everybody wants to show the coaches what they can do. I wouldn't expect anybody to come out here and not give their all. It's going to be tough. It's going to be fun."

Harris didn't catch a single pass last season, but he says he's gained a much better knowledge of the playbook. So he's hoping to contribute more than 15 punt returns and eight kickoff returns in 2012.
