San Antonio, Texas (KLTV) - Terrell Owens and his popcorn are gone, so what guy can replace T.O?

There isn't one.

"There is not going to be a replacement," said wide receiver Patrick Crayton, "it is a whole new year, there is no need to replace, we really just need to keep it going from where we are at, and do it as a collective unit."

The collective unit of Patrick Crayton, Miles Austin and Sam Hurd have a combined for 22 career touchdowns, Terrell Owens had 38 in the past 3 years.

T.O. Made more big plays that anyone, but the cowboys believe that his loss, is addition by subtraction.

"We have to have a lot of people catching balls, and a lot of people making plays, not just one or two," said owner Jerry Jones.

"There are some hungry animals out there, it is like a sea of piranas at the wide receiver," said Sam Hurd, "everyone is trying to eat, so you know that everyday everybody has to come out with their thinking cap on so you don't have any mistakes."

Three hungry recievers could be better than one.

"I feel that I can do anything this year," said Miles Austin, "I just want to go out there and basically show the coaches that I can do that."

"It is an open competition, it is basically a free for all, got to go in there and just keep battling and getting better each day," added Crayton.

"That is why I love this competition at wide receiver, not even my job is safe at that number one spot," said Roy Williams, "I know that Patrick is coming and that Miles and Sam are coming, so it is going to be a battle."
