The Cowboys did not select a player in today’s supplemental draft.
They were not alone in their restraint.
Josh Gordon was the only player selected. The former Baylor receiver went in the second round to Cleveland. The other seven players eligible were all ignored and can now scramble to sign free agent contracts.
The Cowboys did have an interest in Gordon and would have been willing to try to pick him up in the middle of the draft. But with the Browns taking the wide receiver early in the second round _ the highest a player has gone in the supplemental draft in the last nine years _ the Cowboys would have had to expend a first round pick in order to obtain Gordon.
That price was too steep to consider.
