IRVING, Texas (AP) - Terrell Owens' days in Dallas are done,
according to ESPN.
ESPN cited sources tonight in saying that the Cowboys have
decided to cut the receiver, ridding them of a big locker-room
distraction but also absorbing a big hit on their salary cap.
The team did not immediately have a comment. A spokesman for
Owens said he hadn't heard the news, and that Owens was traveling
and could not immediately be reached.
Just a few weeks ago, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones indicated that
T.O. was staying.
Jones seemed to enjoy the publicity Owens stirred up as much as
the touchdowns he scored.
However, there were several in-house issues involving Owens that
may have ultimately prompted Jones to decide the receiver wasn't
worth the trouble he caused.
