The Dallas Cowboy's Cut Terrell Owens

Matt ReaganCorrespondent IMarch 5, 2009

The Dallas Cowboys have severed their ties with troubled wide receiver Terrell Owens and cut him late Wednesday night. Owens signed a four year 34 million dollar contract last year with the Cowboys, but will now be looking for work with a new team.

Included in that contract was a guaranteed 12 million dollar signing bonus. This is now the third team that Owens has left under bad terms.

Owens came into the league in 1996 with the San Francisco 49ers and played his first eight seasons there before being traded to the Philadelphia Eagles. Owens had a short two year stay in Philadelphia where he constantly feuded with teammates in particularly QB Donovan McNabb.

He signed with Dallas and has played for the Cowboys for the last three seasons before wearing out his welcome. Owens has caught 951 passes for 14,122 yards and 139 touchdowns during his thirteen seasons in the NFL.
