BIG ONE... Owens released... Signs With Buffalo

Postby bungle613 » Thu Mar 05, 2009 12:25 am

PER ROTOWORLD

Citing "two sources," ESPN's Michael Smith reports that the Cowboys have released Terrell Owens.

If so, they're getting the move out of the way early. Owens' $3.1M roster bonus wasn't due until June. The move results in a small cap hit, but saves Jerry Jones $5.77 million in cash. Owens still has a lot left -- he averaged 18.9 yards per catch and scored five touchdowns in the Cowboys' last eight games -- and may draw interest from the Raiders, Redskins, Jets, and Broncos. Receiver-needy teams not expected to pursue him include Chicago, Philadelphia, and Miami.

Just heard it on sports radio.

Report: Cowboys release WR Owens

BRISTOL, CONNECTICUT (TICKER) —Terrell Owens’ tumultuous tenure with the Dallas Cowboys appears to be over.

ESPN reported late Wednesday night that the Cowboys have decided to cut ties with their talented lightning rod of a wide receiver. The news comes after a heated 2008 campaign in which Owens was caught up in several controversies and the Cowboys - thought to be Super Bowl contenders - missed the playoffs.

In three seasons in Dallas, Owens caught 245 passes for 3,587 yards and 38 touchdown receptions.



I think he was getting to be too much of a pain in the arse. The only reason that team didn't go deep into the playoffs is Chemestry. Owens was a huge problem with too many demands. I think the team will be better with out him but we will see.

Tough production to replace but he is an ass, that part you can certainly do without. Now, if you can reign in your QB and owner, all will be good in big D.

Probably would have made more sense to do this while there were still some left in FA. I mean they can build around Roy Williams, but going after Housh or Coles might have been a good idea.

I realize this is a bit of a tangent here, but when he gains entry to the Pro Football Hall of Fame (and he will get in someday), what team will he go in with? Seriously! The Niners and Eagles won't touch him and he only played in Dallas for three years. :-B

In any case, Dallas will be less of a zoo without him. Perhaps Daniel Snyder is interested in him. God knows he overpays for crappy has beens and never will be's all the time.

How studly would he look across from Moss with Welker in the slot? Even if Brady can throw 50 TD passes again I don't think you could keep everyone happy. :-b

I thought of that but probably around Week 4 he'd stumble across this video and start insinuating that Brady was gay.

Where does he go? I could see SD being a fit if they had the cap room.

Maybe to the Oakland Raiders? would the Jets or the Giants dare to catch a locker-room virus? B-)

Could Terrell Owens, Vick land with the Raiders?With Dallas Cowboys controversial wide receiver Terrell Owens reportedly on thin ice in Valley Ranch, the NFL rumor mill is swirling about where Owens might wind up if Cowboys owner Jerry Jones ultimately decides to cut ties.

And the Oakland Raiders, who could use a deep threat for quarterback JaMarcus Russell, could be a potential destination for Owens if he's looking for a new employer, according to the Contra Costa Times.

"Of course it's a possibility," Times beat writer Steve Corkran said Tuesday during a live chat with Raiders fans. "Terrell Owens has Raider written all over him, and Al Davis is the kind of owner who would allow Owens to be the person he is as long as he produces in games."

Yeah, I was actually wondering myself if Owens would just say "**** it* and sign with the Pats at reduced pay to finally get that ring and stick it to the rest of the league. There are only so many places he'd probably consider, as they'd have to be a playoff contender, with an owner willing to spend, spend, spend. This situation actually has Redskins written all over it (with the Jets coming in a close second), but I hope he goes elsewhere. I'd love to see him play for Indy, New England, Minnesota, Tennessee, or any NFC South team other than Tampa Bay. Oakland would be absolutely terrible, that team is trash and almost destroyed Randy Moss' career. Not only would Owens be on a losing team, but his stats would be horrible (which you know will affect him personally), not to mention the amount of drama that franchise has already gone through recently. Oakland may actually be the worst possible scenario for him.
