The Dallas Cowboys have just released wide receiver Terrell Owens. This controversial wide receiver had relationship issues with quarterback Tony Romo, tight end Jason Witten, and even offensive coordinator Jason Garrett.
Last month, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said, “There are several decisions on our roster we have to look at. This is the time of year we do that. I’m not trying to be trite, but as you all know we’re evaluating players in college, we’re evaluating free agents, and we’re evaluating our own roster. This is an ongoing thing, not any different than this time last year.”
The Cowboys paid Owens a $12 million signing bonus last year supplemented by a new four-year, $34 million deal. However, after a disappointing 9-7 season, the team had been considering cutting the wide receiver to improve morale in the locker room.
In three seasons with Dallas, Owens caught 38 touchdown passes, including 10 in 2008.
