For the second time in 2010, Dallas Cowboys' receiver Miles Austin has made the cover of Sports Illustrated.
A sign of stardom? Or a jinx waiting to strike?
Austin is on this week's cover curiously wearing a No. 2 jersey (as a Yankees fan, he was honoring Derek Jeter during a minicamp practice)--part of SI's training camp kick-off coverage. He also appeared on the cover back in January before the NFL playoffs.

In Dallas' two playoff games he bagged 11 catches for 116 yards and a touchdown.
