Cowboys not interested in contacting Antonio Brown, regardless of injuries at receiver
The way Jones sees it, the risk is not remotely worth the reward, especially considering neither Cooper nor Cobb have longterm injuries. What can Brown do for you? Well, nothing, if you're name is Jerry Jones.

Of course, all of this is only half the battle for Brown, because the NFL has also warned all 32 clubs he may be placed on the commissioner's exempt list if any team opts to take the risk and give him a contract. There are three teams in the league you can definitively eliminate from a potential go at Brown, those being the Steelers, Raiders and Patriots, but go ahead and pencil the Cowboys in as the fourth who wants no part of what Brown would bring to town.

Sources: Seahawks did due diligence on Antonio Brown before claiming Josh Gordon
NFL teams appear to be waiting for the league's findings before signing Brown. While the investigation continues, Brown waits for employment. The NFL's investigation into accusations that Brown sexually assaulted multiple women. As of Sunday, the NFL hasn't interviewed Brown about the accusations, which would suggest that the league is not close to making a decision at this time. The Seahawks' acquisition of Gordon doesn't mean they can't revisit signing Brown if and when the investigation is over.
