Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has dismissed the rumors about Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens joining the Cowboys. Owens, a Hall of Fame wide receiver who hasn't played in the NFL since 2010, is 49 but reportedly attempting to make a comeback to the league.
This week, Owens' agent Gregory D.L. Daniel said Owens and Cowboys owner "have been in a constant communication." Owens played for the Cowboys between 2006 and 2008. "I've never talked to him or his agent and will not seriously consider it.
I've never talked to him," Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas.
What exactly Owens' agent said about his client and the Cowboys
A few months ago, Owens stated that he never announced his retirement from the NFL. However, Owens hasn't been in the league since 2010 and his stint with the Cincinnati Bengals.
But this week, Owens' agent made the comments that quickly made the headlines. "We've been in constant communication with Jerry Jones' office over the last few days about the possibility of him returning to the Cowboys. Terrell is ready to contribute and play any role, big or small.
He's in outstanding shape. He looks no different than he did years ago. I watched him running routes full-speed with DeSean [Jackson] and he looked great. He didn't drop a pass. He most recently ran a 4.5 40-yard dash, which was his warm-up.
He's a legend. We want to make history and see him break these records. If anybody can do it, it's him. His three Ds are desire, dedication and discipline. He embodies that every day, even running hills at 3 a.m. on Christmas morning," Daniel said this week.
Meanwhile, the Cowboys own a 12-4 record and are set to feature in the playoffs. The Cowboys haven't won a Super Bowl in nearly 30 years and team owner Jones isn't hiding that he wants his players to make a big postseason breakthrough this season.
