    There are no odds of TO being a ram. Literally zero.

    ramming speed to all

    If billy and Steve have any sense once so ever they will not even give TO as much aa a phone call. We do not need that non sense in this locker room in the least bit.

    Re: To cut!

    Dallas doesn't have a 1st rd. pick this year because they traded it to Detroit last year. So they basically have nothing to offer us for our #2 pick. They would have to throw in Jason Witten, Roy Williams, and Demarcus Ware, along with a 2nd round pick this year and a 1st round pick next year, to make me even think about trading our #2 pick this year.

    So basically No....I don't see Dallas trading up for a possible shot at Crabtree, because we would be crazy. Plus I am going to enjoy watching Dallas bottom out over the next couple of years

    Cowboys reportedly release Owens

    IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Terrell Owens' days in Dallas are done, according to ESPN.

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

    The team did not immediately have a comment. A spokesman for Owens said he hadn't heard the news, and that Owens was traveling and could not immediately be reached. His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, also did not immediately return a call.

    Just a few weeks ago, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones indicated that T.O. was staying when he said, "You and I both know that the one that you're asking about all the time, if I gave you the answer that you want to hear, then you would've already had it. So the fact you don't have it ought to tell you something. It really should."

    Jones seemed to enjoy the publicity Owens stirred up as much as the touchdowns he scored. However, there were several in-house issues involving Owens that may have ultimately prompted Jones to decide the receiver wasn't worth the trouble he caused.

    Owens 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.

    While Tony Romo also will be without the recipient of most his touchdown passes, he also will no longer have to make sure T.O. has enough passes his way to make him happy. Whether that was perception or reality will no longer matter either.

    The Cowboys went 31-17 in Owens' three seasons, but 0-2 in the playoffs.

    Jones essentially forced Owens on then-coach Bill Parcells, a relationship underscored by Parcells referring to Owens as "the player." Owens drew attention to himself during training camp by dressing up as a pro cyclist while riding a stationary bike, then had an accidental overdose early that season.

    Yet when Parcells turned to unproven Romo midway through that season, Owens sparkled. They kept it up the next season, leading the Cowboys to all sorts of club records on their way to a 13-3 season and a division title. The Cowboys lost their first playoff game, days after Romo and others went on a trip to Mexico, and Owens tearfully defended Romo, saying, "That's my quarterback."

    Owens got a new contract last summer, a four-year, $34 million deal that included a $12 million bonus.

    The best news for Owens would be if the cameras were rolling for the new reality TV show he has in the works when he got the news from the Cowboys.

    Where might he end up next? That's sure to be the next drama, and perhaps more great fodder for his TV show.

    He's not likely to return to San Francisco or Philadelphia, the other places he wore out his welcome. Then again, it seemed unlikely he would come to Dallas after having offended Cowboys fans by celebrating on the team's star logo while playing for the *****.

    Don't expect him in Miami, not as long as Parcells is in charge. And perhaps also count out Kansas City because new coach Todd Haley and Owens hardly got along when Haley was Dallas' offensive coordinator.

    The Cowboys should still have a potent passing game, at least if receiver Roy Williams can live up to his big contract and the two draft picks Dallas gave up to get him from Detroit. Romo also still has his favorite target, tight end Jason Witten.

    Over three years with the Cowboys, Owens caught 235 passes for 3,587 yards and 38 touchdowns in 47 games. He led the NFL with 13 TDs receiving in 2006, his first season in Dallas.

    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. He turned 35 in December, but remains a physical specimen.

    My prediction for his landing spot:
    1. Ravens
    2. Redskins
    3. Raiders ( I hope their his only option)

    Doubt it, they don't have a first round pick this year, unless they want to trade some of their players as well as future picks

    No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no


    Can you just imagine going to your doctor and having this conversation......

    You: Hey doc, I've been feeling a little down lately; no energy at all. Can you help me out?
    Doctor: Well, there is this form of cancer out there that will give you a little energy. But, of course, it's cancer so it will kill you eventually.
    You: That sounds great, doc. Inject me with cancer!

    No thanks, TO.

    Holt maybe...

    trading up for the second overall,they`d have to trade Demarcus Ware and the rest of their Draft to get our 2nd overall pick. (they have no 1st round picks nor 3rd round..)
    in other words nope.

    Re: Cowboys reportedly release Owens

    Wow he is one high dollar problem. I thought the Cowboys knew how to deal with difficult players, but he did not last long there.

    Is there a stat for the player who has been on the most teams? Maybe TO could aim for that.

    Re: Cowboys cut Owens.

    If I'm not mistaken he seriously is the only receiver to catch a touchdown against every team in the nfl. One of the perks of moving around so much I guess.

    A fine question, Utter. TO is surely a HOFer. One, because his production makes him a legitimate candidate. But, two, his personality makes him a sure thing; a "Namath" entry, if you will. So with that, the question becomes what HOFer has donned the most jerseys on the field. The answer is a little complicated. Here goes....

    6 teams - Jim Thorpe, Frtiz Pollard, & Joe Grunyon - However, they all played in the 20's when teams folded and moved around all the time; so maybe that's a little skewed. But in modern day NFL....

    5 teams - Tommy McDonald (Eagles, Cowboys, Rams, Falcons, Browns) & James Lofton (Packers, Raiders, Bills, Rams, Eagles) - both were Rams at a point in their career.

    4.5 teams - Warren Moon - He played for 5 teams total, but one (Edmonton Eskimos) was a CFL team.

    TO is sitting at 3. Assuming he doesn't sign with the whiners or Eagles, his next team will be the 4th.
