Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is supporting former employee Terrell Owens, who was recently cut by his IFL team Allen Wranglers. Terrell Owens is also going through financial troubles and appeared on Dr. Phil’s show with the mothers of his children, who claim he is behind on his child supports.
“First of all, he really can reach out to me at any time, because I consider him a friend,” Jones said Tuesday at the Cowboys’ minicamp. “We 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 could help someone.”
TO’s last season in the NFL was in 2010 with the Cincinnati Bengals when he caught 72 passes for 983 yards and 9 touchdowns.
“I have actually looked at some of the things he did last year,” Jones said. “He has 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.”
But Jones cleared any notion of the Cowboys, who are looking for a #3 receiver, were interested in Owens.
“Again, we are not planning on doing anything at receiver,” Jones said.
