Cowboys Stay Mum On TO Rumors

Some have wondered if Dallas wouldn't consider bringing Terrell Owens back to fill the vacant no. 3 receiver spot

Earlier this offseason, Jerry Jones said that he believed Terrell Owens, who is once again jobless after being released by the Indoor Football League’s Allen Wranglers in May and still hoping that he might make an NFL comeback, could still play in the league.

That said, we sincerely doubt that the Dallas Cowboys would give any serious thought to bringing Owens back to possibly compete for the vacant no. 3 receiver spot, and judging by the remarks of a couple of current Cowboys, no one at Valley Ranch is crossing their fingers for a reunion between TO and “America’s Team.”

It would be indifferent for me,” Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I think it would be hard for me to make a comment on it really. I’m just out of that situation and let those guys handle that.”

Receiver Dez Bryant declined to go into much detail, either.

“From what I see, he’s a great guy,” Bryant said. “I don’t really want to speak too much on that.”

Of course, even if the Cowboys were keen on bringing in the 38-year-old receiver, Owens most likely burned that bridge--as he’s been known to do on occasion--when he more or less blamed Tony Romo for playing a part in his initial exit from Dallas.
