Terrell Owens, the retired (for now) 49-year-old former wide receiver, wants to rejoin the Dallas Cowboys.
Owens’ agent, Gregory D.L Daniel, told Sports Illustrated:
“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 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.”
Owens is four years older than the current oldest player in the NFL, Tom Brady.
Jones has been open about his desire to add Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cowboys, though a deal has not come to fruition. The Dallas owner is notoriously loose-lipped with the media, so it will be fascinating to see if he comments on this.
Owens played for the Cowboys from 2006-08. His best season for the team was in 2007, when he caught 81 balls for 1,355 yards and 15 touchdowns.
This almost certainly won’t happen, but hey, it’s fun to think about for about two seconds.
