The Dallas Cowboys have had discussions on whether or not to trade wide receiver Sam Hurd. The team is weighing the decision and waiting to see what compensation would be available for one of the Cowboys special teams studs.

Hurd had a team leading 19 special teams tackles last season.

“It’s what I know. It would be tough to play somewhere else,” Hurd said after practice on Monday. “You know your role here, but they know I want to have a bigger role on the offense, and I hope that happens.”

The Cowboys could keep five wide receivers this season. Miles Austin, Dez Bryant, Roy Williams, Patrick Crayton, and Kevin Ogletree are the likely players to earn those spots.

When head coach Wade Phillips was asked about Hurd he said, “I think he does a lot of good things for us; that’s why he’s been with us. He’s a guy you can count on. He’s been injured some the last couple of years, but I think he’s been solid as a receiver and one of our best special teamers, and he’s done that this year.

“We got a lot of good receivers. A lot of good players. I think it’s a competition every year, and really at that position, where he is, it’s always going to be competitive. If he’s a starter, that’s a different thing. But right now he’s not.”
