Miles Austin still has not signed his tender with the Dallas Cowboys, and the Star Telegram reports today that the New York Jets are very happy about that.
Austin is meeting with Jets’ brass this week and a deal could be worked out then. Without Terrell Owens, the Cowboys planned to rely on Austin for a deep threat. He’s shown progress and he’s got great hands. The Cowboys offered Austin a second-round tender, so any team that wants Austin will have to give up a second round pick.
Sadly, I think the Cowboys would do this, and the problem is they may want to consider letting Patrick Crayton go instead, with his undeserved high salary and big mouth.
I am curious, though, if the Jets would give up a second rounder for a third wide receiver? Austin has until April 17 to sign with the Cowboys.
