Owens getting $3 million bonus, but among Cowboys vets missing practice

IRVING, Texas -- Terrell Owens will get his $3 million roster bonus from the Dallas Cowboys even though, like several other starters, he hasn't been practicing with the team.

Owens will get that bonus, plus a $5 million salary for the 2007 season, since he was still on the roster Friday, when he was again absent from voluntary organized team activities.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had repeatedly said since the end of last season that Owens, who had 85 catches for 1,180 yards and an NFL-high 13 touchdowns, would remain with the team. Jones wasn't made available for comment Friday.

Terry Glenn, the other starting receiver, has also missed organized team activities this week. Glenn got a $5 million roster bonus in March, but his salary will only be about $820,000.

Among other players who have missed OTAs the past two weeks are running back Julius Jones, Pro Bowl safety Roy Williams and linebacker DeMarcus Ware.

Owens took part in the mandatory minicamp two weeks ago while recovering from two operations this offseason to repair a torn tendon in his right ring finger. He caught passes and took part in offensive drills without any problems from the finger.

The Cowboys gave Owens a $25 million, three-year contract when they signed him in the spring of 2006.

That's nice, basically the 5 most notable players on the team missing OTAs. They better get their asses in gear, I will not settle for another highly disappointing, underachieving season.

Hope the Boys have fun with him. Jones says they need to get the ball in TO's hands. Have fun with that. Reminds me of the moss percentage a couple years ago. Wade is too big of a puss to stand up to anyone so they will force it to him and get beat. If a team wants to shut you down they will, especially when you are getting older and ending you career which TO is.

I agree. I think everything Cowboys is going to be over-hyped, over-sold, and over-bought and that will spill into fantasy as well. I see a troubled season lying in wait for the 'boys this season. TO is still one of the best, but he's not the dominant figure he once was. He's bound to get frustrated and implode...or explode at poor Romo.

I'll draft these guys, but I'm looking for value...I'm not buying the hype.

He also produces touchdowns. He's the textbook defintion of high risk/high reward. He may haul in a 70 yard TD bomb and get you 10 fantasy points in 5 seconds or drop the pass and get you squat.

Why would anyone be scared to start the best wideout in football? drop passes? Broke finger! The stats dont lie, he missed games and still out performed most WR.
