Keenan McCardell?

It seems like a long time ago when Keenan McCardell was the Jaguars No. 1 receiver. That year, 1996, he amassed 85 catches, 1,129 yards, 3 touchdowns, and earned himself a trip to the Pro Bowl. The Jaguars then snagged Jimmy Smith and McCardell became the No. 2 guy. They became known as "Thunder and Lightning."

McCardell's best season was in 2000, when he caught 94 passes for 1,207 yards and 5 touchdowns.
McCardell has a Super Bowl ring with the Buccaneers, where he was the No. 2 receiver next to Keyshawn Johnson.
Well, there's a rumor that McCardell, who was dropped by the Texans, may be picked up by Dallas because of the Terry Glenn injury.

McCardell is no slack. I have no idea why his productivity fell so much last year with the Chargers, or why he was dropped by the Texans. But, to play for a contender might be enough to get his sparkplugs roaring.

Here are is career stats:

I personally think a veteran fits best. McCardell has performed to Terry Glenn level in 2005. That wasn't long ago. Plus, he's been coached by Wade Phillips. I think it's a win-win for the Cowboys.

UPDATED: Grizz on says in his Podcast that Glenn, is in fact, out for the season. He cites a Dallas source.
