Just down the road from Big 12 Media Days in Irving, Texas, some unfortunate news came down that former Oklahoma wide receiver Travis Wilson has been released by the Dallas Cowboys.
Unfortunate for Wilson, who has had a trying year. Remember, Wilson’s younger brother, Oklahoma wide receiver Corey Wilson, was in a tragic car accident just before the start of spring drills that left him paralyzed from the waist down. Travis talked about Corey in a compelling story written by the Dallas Morning News not long after the accident.
Hopefully, Travis, who has also had brief stints with the Broncos and Browns, catches on somewhere and makes a roster. Just too bad it couldn’t have been in Dallas, nearby his family in Carrollton, Texas, or Corey in Norman as he rehabilitates. Because right now, they need Travis around.
