Report: Cowboys joining pursuit of WR Kenny Britt

By Jesse Reed

The Dallas Cowboys are reportedly jumping into the Kenny Britt sweepstakes as the NFL tampering period kicks into high gear.

Britt is reportedly being pursued by the Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins as well. The list of suitors interested in signing Britt is only going to increase in the coming days.

A player who always had immense potential, he finally broke out last year in his eighth season in the NFL. Playing with the Los Angeles Rams, who really had one of the worst quarterback situations in the league, Britt hauled in 68 passes for 1,002 yards and five touchdowns.

Throw him into a lineup with Dez Bryant, Jason Witten and Cole Beasley and the Cowboys would be unbelievably dangerous as a passing offense. But landing him won’t come cheap.

It’s going to be fascinating to see what kind of contract the big-play receiver hauls in when free agency is all said and done.
