Terrell Owens Says Two Cornerbacks Shine

Terrell Owens has a Q&A at the Dallas Cowboys main Web site you can find here.

Unfortunately, the questions are a bit weak, but there are some interesting parts I wanted to show here.

Which defensive backs have impressed you?

Owens: Well, obviously the ones we drafted. [Mike] Jenkins looks good and the guy really standing out is Evan Oglesby. He’s been making plays throughout camp. It just shows you the film-work he has put in – obviously not playing a lot (last year), but really learning from the other guys. When guys aren’t on the field due to injuries, those are the opportunities he’s taken advantage of. For me, he shows up on the film.

Evan Oglesby has apparently made strides this year. He has impressed a few people watching the camps this year. That’s terrific news for the Cowboys.

What have you seen out of Danny Amendola?

Owens: He reminds me of (Wes Welker) over in New England. He’s short, quick feet, gets in and out of breaks real fast like a waterbug. He’s shown that he can stretch the field and can obviously make some plays. It’s all about who makes the most plays during these training camp days, so he’s definitely shown that he can play at this level.

Several football gurus have already compared Danny Amendola to Wes Welker. But one issue will be how many wide receivers the Cowboys end up keeping. If anyone is going to get dropped, I think it should be Isaiah Stanback, who remains quiet in practices this year. I believe Amendola is a player the Cowboys need to hold onto and see if the kid is truly the next Wes Walker.
