Jets, Cowboys fighting for WR Austin

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones recently said that he felt comfortable releasing WR Terrell Owens because he had confidence in WR Miles Austin. Turns out the Jets have a lot of confidence in Austin, too, and have started to court the young receiver, according to The Dallas Morning News.

The Jets are scheduled to meet with Austin on Thursday and Friday.

Austin is a restricted free agent with the Cowboys, who gave him a $1.545 million tender offer, meaning Dallas would receive a second-round draft pick if it refused to match another team’s offer. The Cowboys would have a week to match any offer, and many believe the team would.

The deadline for signing restricted free agents is April 17.
