Jerry Jones happy to help T.O. get back in NFL, but not with Cowboys

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.

    The Bills should sign him to the minimum amt with a clause if he opens his big mouth he can get cut!

    Romo and Owens put up some ridiculous numbers when he was a Cowboy, I’m not opposed to signing him as a #3 receiver. He would certainly help us spread the field when we get into the red zone. Miles, Dez, Owens, Witten,…those are some pretty decent options to go to within an opponents 10 yard line. And let’s be real, Ogletree has had three years to learn the dang playbook, Owens is a huge upgrade over him.

    All the authors here have to do is type the words “Terrell Owens” (or “Jeffrey Kessler”, or “PacMan Jones”) and everyone gets all in an uproar. Definitely a neat trick.

    I can see him as a Raiders or Bucs training camp pickup.

    Years T.O. played for Cowboys 3. Playoff wins-ZERO.

    Perhaps the Giants should take him. That way the Giants would be less of a threat to my Cowboys!.. All T O does is run his mouth on the field and in the locker room and bring down moral… I don’t care who takes him as long as the Cowboys don’t!.

    Kevin Ogletree might “currently” be running as the #3, but I don’t expect that to last. Dwayne Harris was a 6th rd pick last year. Danny Coale was a 5th rounder this year. They had Andre Holmes on the prac. squad, and Raymond Radway on IR.

    Last year, KO was given a chance to start one game when MAustin and Dez were hurt. Year THREE in the offense, and the dude didn’t even know the formations. Laurent Robinson was signed, bypassed KO on the depth chart, and had a career year. This is the end of the line for Captain Bubblescreen.

    Jerry should reconsider. They haven’t been a SB threat since cutting him.

    I’m Johnson’s biggest critic, but in all fairness not every team wants to bring on a receiver with just a year or two left in his career… You can’t do that AND develop your own folks. I’m surprised he’d even talk about TO since obviously he doesn’t have to.

    This is no big deal!!!

    Andy Reid endorsed McNabb, but has not brought him back to Philly!!!

    Jim Mora, Jr. endorsed Mike Vick, but didn’t tell or summon the Seahawks to sign him!!!

    Why is there no big deal about those two situations????

    I’ll say it again….go back and look at what TO really did his last season with the Cowboys. Take a look at once teams figure out that all you had to do was use press coverage on him. He couldn’t get open.

    The one team that decided not to use press coverage was the 49ers…what did he do? Go for 200+ yds. All the other teams figured it out.

    He doesn’t have it anymore, he won’t admit it to himself…..what’s new? Good riddance!

    “I’d be more than happy to put in a good word for you with the Eagles.”

    T.O, it’s not that anyone doubts your talent. You may even have a little gas left in the tank to help a team out. What they don’t want is your loud mouth, overbearing egotistical, me first, arrogant attitude, spewing from the sidelines and locker room disrupting the players,coaches and game plan as drawn. If after all this time, through all the teams you have played for, all the stories written about you. Did you ever stop and think , maybe your the problem ?

    Not exactly a ringing endorsement from Jerruh.

    I like how this dude imagines that he’s actually conversing with Terrell Owens.

    The same Ego that T.O. Has is the same Ego that drove him to be a great player and at the same time this ego causes others to not like him and think he is selfish, which he may be but that is also Ego driven. Many of the most successful players have giant Egos, Deion Sanders has a large ego for example and was very successful on the field, so did Randy Moss, Micheal Irvin and other players…the same Ego comes with personality flaws. Terrell Owens would be statistically better than many players in the position he plays, his personality is just not wanted by many coahes in their locker rooms and many wonder if they can win with him with his derisive nature.

    @ who said, number of years T.O. Played 3 with zero playoff wins, well, Tony Romo has been quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys for how many years and how many playoff wins does he have?

    The Browns should sign him to a PROVE IT 1 year deal.

    Weeden to T.O.

    Um….a PROVE WHAT deal?

    Like every 38 year old WR coming off a torn ACL, Owens is done. Has nothing to do with his “mouth”, “attitude”, etc.

    No drama in this. Owens got too old like they all do, except way later.

    “I like how this dude imagines that he’s actually conversing with Terrell Owens.”……..If TO can read, he probably IS !…..But….the fact remains !

    TO has made his bed !….and now must sleep in it ! .And……it does NOT pass inspection.
