WR Laurent Robinson didn't sign with the Cowboys until Week Two, but he arguably became the team's most valuable and dependable playmaker down the stretch, finishing with 11 touchdowns. Although this was Robinson's breakout season, there's no question that he will get a lot of attention on the unrestricted free-agent market at age 26. Can the Cowboys afford to bring him back? Many have speculated that he should find offers in the same range as what Packers WR Jordy Nelson received prior to last season — around three years and $13 million. But Nelson has outplayed that contract already and it wouldn't be stunning to see another team offer more to be their No. 1 or 2 receiver. In Dallas, Robinson is no more than the de facto third wideout behind Dez Bryant and Miles Austin. So is he worth No. 2-type money? The Cowboys face a difficult decision here.
