Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terry Glenn cannot even pass a physical, let alone start a game this season. The weeklong development is interesting only because Cowboys brass were quoted earlier in the year saying they believed Glenn would contribute this year. Right now, all he contributes to is dead salary.
Jerry Jones has asked Glenn to sign the $500,000 clause because he is a financial risk. If he doesn’t play, Glenn gets $500,000, a pretty nice payday for sitting on a couch all year. Glenn’s base salary is $1.74 million. The quotes from Jones in this article are pretty telling:
“I paid him $5 million last year and we got four plays,” Jones said “It would surprise me if we didn’t get something worked out.”
In other Cowboys news,
Adam “Pacman” Jones is impressing coaches and his teammates in workouts already. On the final play of the day, Jones intercepted a pass during a two-minute drill and returned it for a touchdown.
This is what Pacman does. He is a defensive playmaker. Anyone who saw the play must have felt the blood pump faster in the veins. Don’t get too excited, tight end Jason Witten pointed out to him: that was the third string offense.
You gotta love it when a columnist in Philadelphia says Dallas is the team to beat. One did it here.
“I’m allowed to believe what I want to believe right now. And what I believe is that the best team in football is the Dallas Cowboys,” wrote Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Daily News.
Finally, a realistic Philly resident. I am sure Ian at insidetheiggles.com will come here saying Domowitch is inane but the guy makes sense.
We’re not perfect, but the additions we made is likely enough to boost the team to playoff success.
“The offseason additions of cornerbacks Pacman Jones and first-rounder Mike Jenkins – assuming Jones gets his suspension lifted by Roger Goodell – improve a secondary that gave up just 19 touchdown passes last year.”
