    In his introduction to the Indoor Football League’s Allen Wranglers on Wednesday, Terrell Owens said he wasn’t bitter about the circumstances surrounding his departure from Dallas back in 2009, but he certainly hasn’t forgotten about that semi-famous meeting between he and Jerry Jones, where Jones used a pen and a tablecloth to break the news to no. 81.

    "It was very disappointing," Owens said of his exit from Dallas, per the Dallas Morning News. "It was one of those things where again it's a lot of lip service -- people saying they're going to do one thing and do another. I've learned a lot within the last three to five years about life in general and even people in general. My grandmother, who passed just the beginning of the year, I remember her telling me not to trust anybody because God is the only person you can trust.

    "Man can change their mind at any given time, and it's sad and its unfortunate. But other than that I have to really take what she has taught me and move forward."

    Less than a year before that meeting with Jones, Owens had signed an extension worth more than $30 million, that would have kept him in Dallas for four more seasons--but the Cowboys opted to open the 2009 season, and Cowboys Stadium, without him.

    Asked about his relationship with Jones on Wednesday, Owens simply responded, “It is what it is.”
