The Dallas Cowboys have released controversial wide receiver Terrell Owens, sources told ESPN's Michael Smith late Wednesday.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones did not deny the team is discussing the possible release of Owens in late February.

"That Stephen and I were debating about Terrell, that's just misinformation," Jones said regarding his son, Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones at the time. "That's just not accurate. I don't know where that comes from. That's just total misinformation."

The Cowboys paid Owens a $12 million signing bonus just last year, included as part of a new four-year, $34 million deal.

Owens caught 69 passes for 1,052 yards and 10 touchdowns this season.

Cowboys extended his contract last season to 4 years and now take a $9M cap hit for the release.  Jerry Jones is a friggin' genius!

OK fine I'll say it...

T.O. to the Steelers, now here me out.

Veteran team
SB champs
Running game ranked 23rd last year
We lost our Home Run threat when Washington left


However are we now a passing team versus a running team
Are there enough balls to go around


And the FINAL most important question....
Could he behave knowing that the team he is on has a legitmate chance to win the SB, and secondly could he realize that if he screws up, just this much, he'll be flying a cargo plane full of rubber dog shit out of Hong Kong!

Now that being said...it would take a miracle for that to happen  iamwithstupid

Go back to sleep, Brinkman, no one wants TO here.

Was just thinking this morning, as ESPN was showing the story and rolling clips from TO's blowup after the loss to the Steelers: that was when he was bitching about Witten getting all the passes, and when he was dropping shit right and left, but if the Steelers winning tilted ownership's opinion of TO being a team guy... Then the Steelers have gotten TO fired twice.  Once, after we creamed the living shit out of the then-undefeated Iggles (2004), and now after coming back from 13-3 to win 20-13 (2008). 

Seems like we get his ass fired regularly, and also win the SB within one season of doing so.  That being the case, I would hereby like to see TO go to the Ravens, Browns, and Bungles, please.  In any order.

No there isn't...TOe needs a pair.  You won't find any willing donors either.

That said, one thing I would love to see if TOe were a Steeler, is the entire Heinz field booing him as soon as he starts his primadonna dance in the EZ.

Wouldn't you love to see a duo of TO and Johnson at the Bengals!  LMFAO, could there be a more dysfunctional duo in the entire universe?  But the TO to Ravens scenario wouldn't surprise a bit.  It would stunt Fucco's development for the foreseeable future.  BAM!

I've advocated the signing of T.O. in the past, but I tend to be more of a gambler than most.  The last time I did, it was back after he made that comeback to play in the SB against NE.  The year they lost Burress to FA.  Whazzat, 5 years ago already?  Man...

That was then, this is now though.  At this point in his career, I think he'd do much more harm than good to basically any team he goes to; even one as "solid" as Pittsburgh's in the locker room.  I seem to remember that Philly group being a pretty tight unit before he got there too.

About the only way I would think about it...think about it, would be if there were like, zero guarantees in the contract and they could cut him at a moments notice with no ramifications.  Obviously, that'll never happen so it's moot.

I will admit that I'd be at least a little curious to see if Tomlin could get this guy to fly straight.  If there's a coach out there that could, I'd bet he'd be the guy.  It's a morbid curiosity, I know.  Admit it though, when you see that nasty wreck on the Interstate, you look too.

I'll fess up, it would be interesting to see.  Give the guy 1 million, load the contract with TEAM-based incentives, 1-year deal to see how he behaves.  Put him on a Bob Knight contract, no tolerance, and see if he holds up.  I'd like to see him challenge James Harrison the way that he did Trotter or Douglas or whoever it was in Philly.  TO would be KOed.

Honestly, it's odd to think how good Philly might have been had TO not let himself get Rosen-hosed.  At this point I really can't even guess who would take a chance on him.  He's different to me than Randy Moss.  Moss was like the HS QB who just thought he could do whatever he wanted and get away with it.  When he got around people who challenged him to grow up, he did.

TO isn't that simple.  I think the guy has serious emotional and mental issues, some kind of attachment disorder or worse.  And I think all his self-love is a cover for a severe inferiority complex.

I would like the Steelers to sign the doucher, just to prevent the pastries from doing so.  then let him rot on the bench and use him as a punchline in the locker room.

instead of being in Tomlin's news, it would be, haha, Holmes just got TO'd for smoking the cheeba.

Three times teams have tried it, three times they've failed.  Sorry, I don't care what team it is, there is no need for a fourth try.  Tomlin is a great coach, but there's nothing in his limited history to prove he can handle that bigt a headache.  If he could run Parcells out of town, it's not worth thinking about.

Just to further play devil's advocate, everyone said that the same thing would happen in NE when they singed Moss.  I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'...

Moss and TO ain't nothin' the same...although Moss has done some dumb ass stuff too.

I'd have no problem with Moss on my team. He can catch.

TO is a plague. And dude drops shit all the time.
