The Cowboys have just released Terrell Owens. Wow, I’m a bit surprised by this move. The wide receivers corps just took a major hit; in addition, we’re not going to see the Owens/Williams one-two punch as many had hoped after a full training camp together. The Cowboys as of right now, will enter murkey waters, and we’re now in a “let’s see what happens” mode going into 2009. The questions will swirl.
How confident are you in these guys, our most current starters:
1. Roy Williams
2. Patrick Crayton
3. Miles Austin
4. Sam Hurd
That’s it right now, man, I just don’t know. I’m hoping the Cowboys are working on some sort of trade for an additional player, perhaps Boldin; otherwise, its gonna be lets see what happens season. This move will be picked apart, in and out the rest of 2009. Lets hope we made the right move here.
From DMN Blog:
The Dallas Cowboys released wide receiver Terrell Owens on Wednesday night according to a source.
Owens was informed of the decision by team officials, who said the team had decided to go in a different direction.
Over the last few weeks, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was asked about the status of Owens by reporters.
Jones refused to say whether Owens would get cut but hinted two weeks ago he might keep the receiver.
Multiple sources said team officials were talking about releasing Owens for the last several days but as of Wednesday afternoon no final decision was made.
The Cowboys will take roughly a $9 million cap hit with the release of Owens.
Owens did not return a call seeking comment, nor did his agent Drew Rosenhaus.
