Dallas Cowboys reportedly cut Terrell Owens from team

March 5, 2009

ESPN is reporting that the Dallas Cowboys are cutting highly talented, wide receiver Terrell Owens.

ESPN cited anonymous sources Wednesday night in saying that the Cowboys have decided to cut the receiver, ridding them of a big but locker-room distraction but also absorbing a big hit on their salary cap.

Owens, 35, got a new contract last summer, a four-year, $34 million deal that included a $12 million bonus,
and will count about $9 million against the cap. His absence means one less high-profile player to open the Cowboys’ new, $1.1 billion stadium, and fewer No. 81 jerseys to sell.

Over his 13-year career, he’s a five-time All-Pro and ranks second in career touchdowns, fifth in career yards receiving and sixth in career receptions.  The big question is which teams will still want Owens and where will he go next?

The Cowboys still have a dangerous wide receiver, at least if former Detroit Lions receiver Roy Williams can live up to his big contract.
