The Dallas Cowboys’ projected starting receiving tandem of Terrell Owens, 33, and Terry Glenn, 33, will be the NFL’s oldest this season.
Following the Cowboys in the top five: St. Louis, Torry Holt, 31, and Isaac Bruce, 34; N.Y. Giants, Plaxico Burress, 30, and Amani Toomer, 33; Indianapolis, Marvin Harrison, 35, and Reggie Wayne, 28; and Chicago, Bernard Berrian, 26, and Mushin Muhammad 34 (AP).
There’s no question Terrell Owens and Terry Glenn are star receivers, and one of the best tandems in the league, question is, how much longer can they hold up. I think Owens has a bit more tread to use than Glenn. Glenn has been bitten with the injury bug a bit more in recent years, particularly with his knees. Will we hit with the Stanback pick, or are we planning on targeting someone in next years draft? Probably a combo of the two. Owens and Glenn are hard to replace, they are just that good, so the Cowboys will need a solid contingency plan soon.
