You heard it here first! TO has officially been released in a move that will both elate and break the hearts of many Cowboys fans. More will come in this article. You heard it here first!


From ESPN:


"The Dallas Cowboys have released controversial wide receiver Terrell Owens, sources told ESPN's Michael Smith late Wednesday.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones did not deny the team is discussing the possible release of Owens in late February.

"That Stephen and I were debating about Terrell, that's just misinformation," Jones said regarding his son, Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones at the time. "That's just not accurate. I don't know where that comes from. That's just total misinformation."

The Cowboys paid Owens a $12 million signing bonus just last year, included as part of a new four-year, $34 million deal."


My thoughts. This isn't unexpected. I don't like it personally, but he was a nuisance. Without him or Pacman, and with the addition of Keith Brooking, this will add stability to an otherwise tumultous locker room. T.O. played great for the Cowboys...but his antics got the best of him.


What's next? The Cowboys don't have a solid #2. I'm expecting them to chase after Marvin Harrison or some equally decent, yet declining receiver. They might look to the draft, but I think they need to get someone proven to add some more stability.
