The Cowboys Pick Up A Receiver

More

From a reality show:

Ever since Michael Irvin retired, he's been hearing that the Dallas Cowboys could use another receiver like him.

Irvin believes he's delivering that guy to them.

Jesse Holley -- a tall, flamboyant receiver with a great smile and plenty of charisma -- was revealed Monday night as the winner of "4th and Long," the reality TV show on Spike that was organized and hosted by the Hall of Famer.

Holley's prize is the 80th spot on the Cowboys' training-camp roster and a standard rookie contract. However, with Terrell Owens gone and few proven receivers left, Irvin believes the 25-year-old Holley could be more than just a practice body.
