When Terrell Owens got himself into trouble with the Eagles, Jerry Jones was there to help him find a soft landing spot.
Now the Cowboys owner is putting himself out there to help out T.O. again. Jones said that he would be happy to help Owens, recently dropped by the IFL’s Allen Wranglers, in his effort to land another job in the NFL.
“He really can reach out to me at any time, because I consider him a friend,” Jones said, via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “I would feel good if he reached out. I think that he really, without having first-hand knowledge, of what kind of physical condition he is in, I know he has the right stuff and he could help someone. “I have actually looked at some of the things he did last year. He’s still got the ability to be quite a threat as a receiver. I would advise him if that he still has got the heart — and he does — to continue to try to get on with an NFL team.”
Jones’ team currently has Kevin Ogletree running as the third receiver, so perhaps they’d like to add a guy with the ability to be quite a threat as a receiver? That would be a no.
Jones says that the team has no plans to do anything different at receiver than they are doing right now, which raises the possibility of how much help Jones could offer with others once he has to explain why adding Owens to the Cowboys doesn’t appeal to him.
