I was listening to the Ferrall show on Sirius sattelite radio last night and one of Ferrall’s guests was cbssports.com’s Jamey Eisenberg.
Eisenberg was taking calls from listeners about their fantasy football teams, and one of the listeners brought up Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Sam Hurd.
Eisenberg told the caller that Hurd had been placed on IR and then said something along these lines:
“I think his career is over. The Cowboys have Terrell Owens and Patrick Crayton on long-term deals, they made the move for Roy Williams and Miles Austin should beat Hurd out for the fourth spot. I can’t see him coming back for them.”
I’ve been a fan of Hurd ever since he came into the league, but I think Eisenberg is right. Hurd might be the odd man out in the Dallas receiving corps. Isaiah Stanback’s career could also be in jeopardy, but he offers more than Hurd because he’s a kick returner, too (also a former quarterback, so if he ever gets healthy, the coaching staff could add a few trick plays to the playbook). He’s banged up all the time, but he offers more than Hurd. So, as Eisenberg said, Hurd’s time with the Cowboys could be over.
I also can’t think of many teams off the top of my head that would make a move for Hurd. The Vikings? The Seahawks? The Rams?
