Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones knows what it is like to have Terrell Owens as part of your team. He remembers the good times on the field, as well as the controversy he brings along with him at all times. Jones says that he is still a big supporter and fan of Owens’ and hopes that he can make a return to the NFL.
It just won’t happen in Dallas.
Owens is hoping for similar fortunes as former Cincinnati Bengals teammate, Chad Ochocinco, who just signed with the Miami Dolphins after being released by the New England Patriots last week. But Owens is 38-years-old and has not played in the NFL since the end of the 2010 NFL season.
It is also worth noting he was released from the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League, a team in which he was part owner.
Call me crazy, but that does not bode all that well for an NFL comeback.
Either way, you can seemingly cross off the Cowboys from a list of teams who may be interested in signing T.O.
“First of all, he really can reach out to me at any time, because I consider him a friend,” Jones said Tuesday at Dallas’ minicamp. “We would feel good if he reached out. I think that he really, without having first-hand knowledge of what kind of physical condition he is in, I know he has the right stuff and could help someone.”
Not you, though, right Jerry?
“I have actually looked at some of the things he did last year,” Jones said. “He has the ability to be quite a threat as a receiver. I would advise him if that he still has got the heart — and he does — to continue to try to get on with an NFL team.”
Any team except for America’s Team. No need applying here, fella.
“Again, we are not planning on doing anything at receiver,” Jones said.
The Cowboys already have Miles Austin and Dez Bryant along with Jason Witten as weapons for Tony Romo. Owens would not be a good fit in Dallas, and may very well not catch on with any other team.
Not any NFL team, at least.
