I reported the possibility first and now it seems like the press is catching on. The Dallas Cowboys, according to several media reports, are strongly considering releasing embattled wide receiver Terrell Owens.
The talent and production on the field may not be worth the attention the media gives him that can, and has, lead to team destruction. But it may be even worse than we originally thought.
Offensive coordinator Jason Garrett has apparently told Jerry Jones and other team brass that he’s looking for other jobs and will take one if he’s not made head coach and Terrell Owens is not released. Apparently, according to the press, Garrett is after Wade Phillips‘ job, and he might just get it.
The big signings Jerry committed to this offseason could even strap him from signing the Cowboys best player, DeMarcus Ware. Can this really be happening?
Owens is due a roster bonus of $3 million in June and his salary is about $9 million. The cap hit either way is high. But the Cowboys could afford it—this year.
