Earlier this week, former Dallas Cowboys star wide receiver Michael Irvin suggested the team should sign Antonio Brown.

His comments came after star wide-out Amari Cooper suffered a quad injury. After Cooper missed time with the injury, Irvin said the team needs to bolster its depth at wide receiver by adding the former New England Patriot.

In a radio appearance on Friday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones addressed the possibility of adding Brown.

Hint: it's not going to happen.

Here's what he had to say, via Pro Football Talk.

"Again, I don’t want to be talking about any player. I like our depth. We’ve got guys that we haven’t seen, 81 [Jon’Vea Johnson, who is on injured reserve]. We’ve got some players out there that I think give us as good a depth at receiver that we have on the squad — let me real clear about that — as I’ve seen us have in years. So, I’m not speaking to Antonio. I’m not speaking to anybody, but I believe we would go with the depth we have."

It looks like the Cowboys won't be adding a star wide receiver like last year.

Dallas has a huge divisional contest against Philadelphia on tap this weekend. The winner of Sunday's game will take first place in the NFC East.
