TO Thought He'd Retire As A Cowboy

Terrell Owens was released by the Cowboys back in 2009



    Since being welcomed back to North Texas on Wednesday, this time as a member of the Indoor Football League’s Allen Wranglers, Terrell Owens has spent a good deal of time in town reflecting on his stint with the team about 30 miles south of Allen, the Dallas Cowboys.

    Owens maintains that he’s not bitter about the way he was let go, told by Jerry Jones that he was being released less than a year after signing a four-year contract extension, but his comments make clear that he is still trying to make sense of the way his time in Dallas came to an end.

    In the most recent interview, with ESPN Radio 103.3’s “Galloway & Company”, Owens said that for a time, he thought he would retire a Cowboy.

    All I can do is just wish them the best,” Owens said, via ESPN Dallas. “I still have friends on the team and I'm pretty sure they're scratching their head and trying to figure things out just as well as the city of Dallas is. Again, it's very unfortunate that my stint here was kind of cut short. I definitely thought that I probably would have retired a Cowboy but that didn't happen, and you know things happen in life and you just got to move on.”
