  • Austin did make the trip.

    Miles Austin-WR- Cowboys Apr. 10 - 8:41 pm et
    The Newark Star-Ledger reports that restricted free agent WR Miles Austin did in fact meet with the Jets on Friday, contrary to an earlier New York Daily News report.
    The Jets have not yet signed Austin to an offer sheet, but they informed him that an offer is forthcoming. The Cowboys were reportedly "preparing a plan" to ensure that they don't lose Austin, so they would likely match the Jets' offer.

    I personally think it'd be great to get a 2nd rounder for Austin and then turn around and sign Holt.

    Also I am not sold on drafting Delmas either.

      Awesome! Thanks for posting this news.

        Wow really? I want no part of Moore, and everything from Delmas was very positive in the Senior Bowl. They said he stepped in with guys from those big schools and was the leader instantly on that defense, lining guys up, offers what Moore does in run support and can cover twice as good.


        It's just my personal opinion, but I think we are going to cross off any safety that has questionable coverage skills, I don't know if we want a true centerfield type, but I think we will want a guy who can cover out of the slot, and I think that rules out Moore and Chung as well.

          New York Jets visit with Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin

          The Jets can sign Miles Austin, above right, to an offer sheet any time before April 17.

          Dallas Cowboys restricted free agent wide receiver Miles Austin visited the Jets Friday contrary to an earlier report.

          The Jets didn't sign Austin, a former Monmouth University star, to an offer sheet but the meeting went well and the Jets told Austin that they plan to put together one in the coming days, according to a person with knowledge of the talks.

          If the Cowboys doesn't match the offer, they would receive a second-round pick from the Jets as compensation. Dallas has extended a one-year, $1.54 million tender offer to Austin.

          Although the restricted free agent signing period ends on April 17th, the Jets can sign Austin to an offer sheet anytime before then and the Cowboys will then have seven days from that point to match the offer.

          While the Jets clearly like Austin, they are said to be hesitant about parting with a second-round pick, which would be 52nd overall. Austin, however, appears to be as good or better than any receiver the Jets could get in the second round.

          It'll be interesting to see if Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum dreams up a creative offer sheet, one that may include a diabolical ``poison pill,'' a clause designed to make it virtually impossible for a team to match.

          Last season, Austin, 6-foot-3, 216 pounds, had 13 catches for 278 yards (21.4-yard average) and three touchdowns. The fourth-year pro also averaged 21.5 yards on 29 kickoff returns.

          It's unclear if Austin, a Garfield High grad, left the area. The New Jersey native may visit with his family over the holiday weekend.

Yes Minnesota is not a WR friendly place but stil he has done nothing spectacular in his career... of course the jury is still out but I don't see anything special in him right now... he, imo, has the same value of Austin...

            • I sure hope there is a poison pill that doesn't allow Dallas to match the Jets offer.

              If we can't field a productive offense with the weapons we have not including Austin then we don't deserve to win.

              We would be getting a 2nd rounder for a guy who for the most part hasn't proven anything yet.

                He caught 31 from Tarvaris Jackson his rookie year then got hurt last year ...... but more importantly he is a different receiver than Austin and we could have had him while keeping the 2nd/3rd we sent to Philly for Spencer.

                  Exactly. The offense has more weapons than receivers. Witten already was going to be the number 2 option, Bennett will get open too, and Felix and Barber are good options in the passing game as well. This team doesn't need a Cardinals style receiving core to be successful.

                    You need speed at the WR spot to stretch the field.

                    Bennett, Witten, Crayton, Hurd, Felix, MBIII are not effective if the field is shortened due to a lack of a deep presence.

                    What makes Austin important is he can fly by even the better Safeties so they need to ris-pet. Not sure Williams can do that. TO could but needed a clean release given his age. Maybe Stanback can.

                      Roy Williams is plenty athletic enough to keep a safeties attention.

                      We easily have the offensive players to pound the rock with Barber, Jones, and Choice. Once you suck up the safeties you go deep with Roy, or hit Witten/Bennett going down a seam.

                            I think Austin has successfully created a mirage in people's minds that he has deep speed. He does not have raw speed that makes him some special player that fits a unique role. If anything, he was simply the # called to run that deep route. Fortunately for him, his number was called and to his credit, he connected on some of them. Let me emphasize.... he connected on SOME of them. He was never consistent at it. But his timing got better.

                            The 2 things needed for a deep speed guy:

                            1. Raw speed.
                            2. Timing with the QB.
                            3. Have your number called to run that route.

                            Austin had 2 of the 3. The last 2. ...and he didn't have #2 until last year.

                            He's not the most difficult guy to replace on the team by any stretch of the imagination. He ran a 4.52 40 at the combine for crying out loud.

                              I just don't see why we now go and scrap the years worth of grooming we've done with Austin. Not to mention the fact that he and Romo have started to develop some chemistry and timing. Outside of Witten and Crayton, Romo has no solidified chemistry with any of our other receivers.

                                I have completely been against Garrett, but guess what he loves to do? Go deep, so he will find ways to get the receivers deep just like I originally stated.
