Martellus Bennett and Laurent Robinson are visiting elsewhere

Tight end Martellus Bennett is expected to find a new home, and receiver Laurent Robinson could be following.
Bennett's days as a Cowboys are all but over. He began a free-agent tour with the Giants on Tuesday. He also has drawn interest from the Bears, Raiders and Bucs.
Bennett said in a radio interview recently that he considers himself a "60-catch" tight end and wants to go somewhere where he can be the starter. With the Cowboys, he is relegated to the second tight end behind Jason Witten. Bennett has 85 catches for 846 yards and four touchdowns since the Cowboys made him a second-round pick in 2008 out of A&M. He has not caught a touchdown pass since his rookie season.
He was the team's best blocking tight end and the Cowboys will have to find a replacement.
Robinson visited the Jacksonville Jaguars and also is being courted by the Arizona Cardinals. Robinson caught 54 passes for 858 yards and 11 touchdowns in 14 games for the Cowboys last season. Owner Jerry Jones recently praised Andre Holmes and said Holmes, though unproven, is ready to ascend to the No. 3 receiver role.

Robinson does make the offence better.You have to remember who's getting double teamed. So he can get them balls passed to him. You have to remember it's a teame game.He could be used, but cost to much! Like to have him. In case someone go's down. We have receivers.A really good back, would help the passing game. We need a back. Like we had in the days. Murray, look like he may pull it off. If he stays healthy. Jones, well what can I say? he's really not impressed me. Other, then spurts here and there. Get her done, Cowboys!!!!!!!!!

With Bennett and Buehler and Newman gone they have the money to sign Robinson.

Thats right i agree if Cowboys let go of Robinson it will be a big mistake he has made a difference in the recieving core no other reciever for dallas stood out last year why trade him i dont understand.

If Dallas lets Robinson go they are stupid. He makes ythe passing game complete.
