Terry Glenn’s refusal to sign a $500,000 injury waiver is a slap in the face to a team that paid him $5 million this past season for four plays. His refusal to sign the agreement shows he’s out for greed. And the Cowboys ought to just let him go from the team because he’s now becoming a bad apple among a tree of ripe fruit.
Glenn told ESPN’s Ed Werder that he is not going to sign the waiver and if the Dallas Cowboys don’t want him to practice, they ought to just let him move on. According to ESPN, Glenn two doctors believe his surgically repaired knee will not cause problems for him this season. Fine. So sign the damn waiver. But Glenn is insistent and is asking for the Cowboys to let him go find a new team.
“I want who I’m playing for to want me to be playing for them. .. I will get my freedom and play for someone who didn’t talk me into postponing surgery last season and then hold it over my head the next,” Glenn told Werder.
Of course, in the same article here ESPN makes a huge deal out of nothing. Terrell Owens had a family emergency and missed the opening of minicamp. So did Ken Hamlin. But Owens’ absence is huge news for ESPN, the Dallas Cowboys hating network. This is what sucks about ESPN. We Cowboys fans have to endure this crap all year long, the network sensationalizing nothing stories into huge, front page trouble.
