Why Dallas Will Not Look To Re-sign Terrell Owens
Terrell Owens is now a UFA which means unrestricted free agent. Anyone can pick him up for however much money he and his agent agree to.
He is an example of the joys of free agency which give hope to struggling teams looking to improve their team by going after experienced players for lucrative contracts.
According to Sports Illustrated, Cowboys wide receiver, Patrick Crayton, has stated that he would welcome the return of Terrell Owens should he come back to the Dallas Cowboys.
However, I don’t think the Cowboys will go after Terrell due to a few reasons.
A: He’s a year older and we don’t know if he’ll keep up his previous production of the past.
B: Terrell has publicly stated many unflattering comments about former teammates like how if he had had quarterbacks like Joe Montana and Steve Young throwing to him for his career, he would have numbers like Jerry Rice.
That is a subtle way of saying, ‘My QBs are not good enough to realize how open I am at all times.’
He even posted things on his twitter page, which I thought was fake at the time, but sadly, it was confirmed to be true.
His exact words when responding to a fan that had stated he was unhappy that T.O. was no longer in Dallas were: “Neither ws i, blame the OC & romo!! but i’m happy 2 b where i am but i miss the other guys tht were & r true teammates!!”
The “OC” is offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, who calls all the plays for the Cowboys. We all know who Romo is.
So, how can Dallas just welcome back a guy who has insulted the two guys that are responsible for Owens getting the ball at all?
C: We already have an accomplished receiving corp. Roy Williams is going to start next year as said by Jerry Jones, the owner and general manager of the Dallas Cowboys, and the Cowboys are paying him starting money already with a six-year contract of $54 million and along with $26 million of that guaranteed.
Throw in the fact that Miles Austin will get a new contract soon, and he is the number one guy who will get a lot of money. Throw in the fact that the Cowboys love to run the ball just as much as they do pass it, so we can’t expect this team to be Air Coryell and play with three wide receivers every down.
Despite Roy Williams’ disappointments this year, I believe that he can improve and become that big-play wide receiver we need alongside Miles Austin.
The two guys we have now are much younger, much quieter, are more of team players, and will not have reality shows in the offseason.
I love T.O. But, we can’t have him now. We’d be wasting money on an unhappy player. Dallas is a family now. Keith Brooking is the daddy on defense and Tony is taking charge on offense, and Tony doesn’t need Terrell demanding the ball every other down.
What else is there?
Terrell Owens is not coming to Dallas. The Cowboys are going to use the receivers they have now and look to a Super Bowl win next year.
