Two of the NFL’s most insightful rumor sources believe that Terrell Owens‘ days in Dallas are over.
Would this really be a surprise? It most likely is one of the major makeovers the Dallas Cowboys are planning to improve team chemistry and change the whole leadership of the team after a disappointing season and more than a dozen years without a playoff win. It hurts to even say that.
If the Cowboys can trade Owens, maybe a draft day trade, it would be an amazing move for the team, but it is almost certain that teams will just let the Cowboys release the player before anyone honors a trade for his high salary. It means a hefty cap hit, but the Cowboys don’t need a whole lot on this team to win.
It is very possible, as I told some buddies last night during my birthday bash, that the Cowboys may trade away most, if not all, of their 2009 draft picks and just not do much in free agency or the draft to save cash flow. The first priority is signing DeMarcus Ware and cleaning up the locker room.
Also, expect Greg Ellis to be released or traded. He once again is doing his annual whining about his playing time and it’s just getting old. The Cowboys may not be too happy with Anthony Spencer, either, but he’s the obvious replacement for Ellis and there are teams who would love to take on Ellis, who still performs at a pretty high level. As I mentioned before, would the Cowboys be interested in Julius Peppers?
And personally, I think Ray Lewis would love to play for the Dallas Cowboys, and I don’t care what any Baltimore native says.
