The Cowboys' receiver averaged 78.3 receptions, 1,189 yards, and 12.7 touchdown receptions in his tenure there. He made the Pro Bowl in 2007 and was selected to the All-Pro first team that same season.
Similar to his previous teams, he had his share of drama in Texas.
Whether it be having “$25 million reasons to live”, “that's my quarterback”, or “my quarterback likes Jason Witten more than he likes me,” there was never a dull moment in Dallas with Owens in the fold.
This is a very good move for the Cowboys. Owens is going to be 36 this December. The Cowboys traded a first-round pick for WR Roy Williams last year. They had problems involving everyone on offense last year as well.
Roy Williams is only 27 and has a lot of potential. Give the fighting that was going on between TO, Jason Witten, Tony Romo, and offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, somebody had to go.
Releasing TO was the easiest way to resolve this situation.
