Owens offered 25k to play 1 game for GLIFL Team

The flirtations ex-Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens had with the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs before signing with the Dallas Cowboys last weekend were well publicized.

But there was apparently one more offer that Owens received, and it emanated from the Lehigh Valley.

''I offered him $25,000 to play for us for one game,'' said Jim DePaul, owner of the start-up Lehigh Valley Outlawz of the Great Lakes Indoor Football League. ''We contacted [Owens' agent] Drew Rosenhaus, and said it's a chance for him to come back to Lehigh [where the Eagles hold training camp and where the Outlawz will play their games].

''I talked to Rosenhaus, and he put me in touch with Robert Bradley, who does [Owens'] business deals.''

Outlawz coach Bob Kohler, preparing for his team's debut season at Lehigh's Stabler Arena, shook his head when he learned of the offer.

''I just looked at [DePaul] and said, 'What?'Kohler said. ''I thought he was kidding. But Jim knows a lot of people, and then he showed me the letter [sent to Rosenhaus].

''It was worth a shot. I didn't know what kind of response [Owens] would get from the fans.''

The latter concern became moot when the Cowboys showed Rosenhaus and Owens the big money, including $10 million in bonus money.

''I'm sure [Dallas owner] Jerry Jones won't let him come up and play,'' Kohler said.

No word on if the Outlawz have contacted ex-Lakers dancer and current ''American Idol'' panelist Paula Abdul about joining their dance team for a one-game appearance.

Misleading title. 25k/game isn't 25k/season.

Still a bit of a pay cut. TO is earning 10 million this year in Dallas... and assuming he takes us to the Super Bowl, it's still more than 500,000 a year.

Hell, if he DOES take us to a SB, I won't complain a bit. ;-D

If you can suggest a better title (and keep in mind you are restricted to no more characters than are currently there) then I'm all ears!

Assuming he takes the Cowboys to the Super Bowl is a mighty big assumption. Winning the NFC East isn't even guaranteed with that jerk on the team.
