The Cowboys are continuing to check the market for pass catchers, and one receiver that they may some interest in is Falcons WR Joe Horn, who is not happy with the Falcons. NFL Network’s Adam Schefter threw out the report that the team is keeping an eye on the situation with Horn and the Falcons.
Schefter says Horn has become “plan 1A” for Dallas if Terry Glenn doesn’t sign his injury waiver and the Cowboys could send Atlanta a late-round pick. Last season in 12 games for the Falcons Horn caught just 27 passes for 243 yards and one score. He was expected to come in and be a big influence in the locker room, but after he was told that he was not going to get much playing time in 2009, he reportedly told the team he wanted out.
Horn does not have much gas left in the tank at 36, and is a far cry from even the receiver he was 2-3 years ago when he was making plays with the Saints. His best season with New Orleans came in 2004 when in 16 games he caught 94 passes for 1399 yards and 11 scores. The Cowboys will keep their options with both Glenn and possibly Horn open as training camp gets going.
