Position: Wide receiver
Summary: Ogletree posted career highs in catches (32), yards (436) and touchdowns (four), but he did himself no favors with some untimely misplays and was never able to come close to replicating his Week 1 performance vs. the New York Giants where he had eight catches for 114 yards and two touchdowns. While his final numbers are in line with what a No. 3 receiver in this offense should put up, Ogletree became an easy target for what didn't happen on offense in 2012.
Why keep him: The Cowboys have invested four years in him and finally saw some fruit in their patience. He is talented, if enigmatic, and can play all three wide receiver roles.
Why let him go: The development of Dwayne Harris as the year went on makes Ogletree expendable. He does not contribute to special teams, so his usefulness is limited to a specific role.
