The Dallas Cowboys’ loss of Tony Romo-favorite Laurent Robinson as their No. 3 wide receiver leaves an opening for Raymond Radway.
Will he jump through it?
The 2005 McKinney North graduate is recovering well from a season-ending injury in 2011. Cowboys wide receivers coach Jimmy Robinson told The Dallas Morning News in Sunday’s edition that Radway “kind of looks like he did before he got hurt,” saying he’s running well on the left leg that he broke last season.
Radway, 24, impressed many at Cowboys camp last summer. In fact, he scored the team’s first touchdown of 2011 in an Aug. 11 preseason game against the Denver Broncos. If you missed TSB’s posting that night, you can click here.
But then, as it often does in football, an injury derailed Radway’s big plans. The ex-football and track standout at North and, later, Abilene Christian suffered a broken leg in the final moments of the final preseason game. He spent the regular season on injured reserve for the Cowboys.
The Cowboys’ top two receivers are set with Miles Austin and Dez Bryant doing the honors. But Robinson opened eyes around the league with his 54-catch, 858-yard season, and he got a $32.5 million free agent contract from the Jacksonville Jaguars in the offseason.
Thus, the opening for a No. 3 receiver. Radyway certainly isn’t the only candidate. Joining him in the mix are guys like Danny Coale, Dwayne Harris, Andre Holmes and Kevin Ogletree.
