Texas-Sized Ego Lands In Dallas

The Dallas Morning News reports, “Sources: Cowboys, Owens have deal in principle”.

The article doesn’t yet list the terms of the deal; if it’s for one year, fine: Terrell Owens will be on his best behavior this coming season (as he was–more or less–his first year in Philly), wanting to prove that he isn’t as bad as his self-inflicted auto-da-fe last year made him out to be. But beyond that, he’s a sure bet to crash and burn again. And it’s Super Bowl or bust this season for the Cowboys, given Parcell’s age and this deal. But I’m not sure if they have the supporting talent to pull it off, even with Drew Bledsoe pitching to Owens and Terry Glenn as his wide receivers.

It will be interesting to see how Owens is accepted by the Cowboys’ hometown fans, after his infamous incident dancing on the Cowboys’ star logo on the Texas Stadium turf during when the ‘Niners played the ‘Boys in 2000.
