Hail Mary: Cowboy Kevin Ogletree Paid His Debts, But Only After a Lawsuit's Filed

Dallas backup wide receiver Kevin Ogletree was planning on stiffing his housesitter for more than $16,000 in expenses incurred while he was out of town during the lockout, according to a lawsuit filed in Dallas County on December 30 by the son of longtime Cowboys strength and conditioning coach Joe Juraszek.

Well, Ogletree was until he got the summons. J.D. Juraszek's attorney, Michael Hindman, tells Unfair Park Ogletree had a change of heart and settled up, agreeing to pay for the exorbitant costs Juraszek incurred while moving Ogletree into his new Valley Ranch apartment in Irving and caring for his dog, Kluster.

The suit, first posted on Courthouse News, alleges that Ogletree, arrested last September in Coppell over some outstanding traffic-violation warrants, had asked Juraszek to move him and Kluster out of his apartment on Blackburn and into a place closer to the team's practice facility. He would be out of town for most of the summer because of the NFL lockout, so the two allegedly agreed that Juraszek would move in and maintain the apartment in his absence.

Meanwhile, says the suit, Juraszek paid more than $1,200 to movers and spent some $4,250 on household items, a new washer and dryer, two TV mounts, maid services and rent. He spent more than $700 on a new tire for Ogletree's BMW and spent roughly $300 shipping things like cleats and gloves to him. In May, he spent nearly $700 on vet bills for a "badly neglected" Kluster. In July, Juraszek bought Ogletree's cousin Tyronea a new iPhone. All of it, he claimed, Ogletree had agreed to repay.

While he house-sat, the complaint says Juraszek brought his new $1,400 bed, an $1,800 TV, two huge Lovesac beanbags valued at $1,900 and a $2,500 David Yurman necklace. When Juraszek asked to be reimbursed, the suit claims, Ogletree said he couldn't pay, because he'd just purchased a new "Roley." Juraszek pressed him, and he claims Ogletree threatened him with physical violence and refused to let him collect any of his personal items. He claims he also tossed Juraszek's mattress and bed into a Dumpster.

The Cowboys are aware of the situation, they said, but declined to comment.

When searching for Texas ranch land, consider the level of utility that you expect from it. If you plan to use the land for raising livestock, you should opt for lush grasslands with a proper water source and shady areas. In case you want to use the property for hunting purposes, forest land would be useful where the guests can find enough animals. You should also keep in mind the degree of ease with which you can access the property. You must also make sure that the boundaries of your potential Texas land for sale have been clearly defined.

You can take the boy out of the hood, but you can't take the hood out of the boy! Surprised Dez wasn't involved in this fracas, but they'll both be sporting TDC orange with Sam Hurd before long.

I suppose that's better than Sam Hurd, but what is it about wide receivers that requires them to be dumb as bricks?

Trying to determine here who's more spoiled...Ogletree or JD Juraszek.

As I'm quite sure all of you know now, really spare 4th string wideouts never have enough Roleys.  If'n it hadn't been Juraszek's baby boy, he would've skated.

He will not be with the Cowboys next year, not because of this, but because he isn't that good

Once again it is obvious these so-called sports stars need more than strength training.  Top priority should be life style training.

TRDP1, seeing as how you're a good strong SA-onian please head on over to CoA and make a ruling on Scruff's bold claim.  Og's is more spoiled, he's paid hundreds of thou a year to be a spoiled brat..JD is just living off his dad, like 2 out 3 dudes you'd see in Uptown everynight...changed my mind, Tie.
