According to an article posted by Pro Football Talk, a source claims the Dallas Cowboys have an interest in veteran wide receiver Kenny Britt. On some levels this move makes sense. The Cowboys have a couple of receivers who are free agents, one whom is a starter in Terrance Williams. Britt fits the mold of a big receiver that Dallas likes and he’s not much older than Dez Bryant. He’s been productive in his career and could flourish in an offense as strong as the Cowboys.

If the Cowboys lose Terrance Williams, they will need a replacement. But, as it almost always does, this will come down to money. Recently, Williams’ market value was pegged at between $6-$8 million.

Our own VAfan, in his series on the Cowboys offseason plan, included Britt in his potential free gents that Dallas could be interested in on offense. In that piece, Britt’s market value was around $6.7 million.

Kenny Britt. Estimated $6.7 million average annual value. 28 years old. 6’3” 215 lbs. Gained 1,002 yards last year. If he could be had for this price, the Cowboys should grab him.

Just recently, Jerry Jones made a point about the Cowboys need to improve in free agency or the draft at wide receiver. The Cowboys seem to believe that Williams is moving on; Britt would be an excellent replacement, but the money might not be in their price range.
