Two former Dallas Cowboys players are making headlines this week.
It started with NFL Hall of Famer Terrell Owens, who played for Dallas from 2006-08, and has reportedly been in “constant communication” with the Cowboys regarding a possible return, according to Sports Illustrated. If Owens comes back, he’d be the oldest player in NFL history, which would surpass the late George Blanda, who was under center for the Oakland Raiders at age 48 in 1975.
“Terrell is ready to contribute and play any role, big or small,” Gregory D.L. Daniel told Sports Illustrated. “He’s in outstanding shape. He looks no different than he did years ago. I watched him running routes full-speed with DeSean [Jackson] and he looked great. He didn’t drop a pass.”
Shortly after the news, former Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant took to Twitter and stated how he would also like to come back, but for a playoff team.

“If T.O coming back… sign me up to a playoff team… seriously! LFG”
Bryant last played in 2020. That year, he played six games with the Baltimore Ravens, collecting only six receptions for 47 yards. Many believe the receiver’s career is over, but he clearly thinks otherwise.
After passing on Beckham and signing T.Y. Hilton recently to go alongside CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup, it doesn’t seem like the Cowboys are in the receiver market — let alone trying to get two former players of the team that haven’t played in quite some time.
Owens ranks third all-time in receiving touchdowns behind Jerry Rice and Randy Moss, while his 15,934 receiving yards trail those of Rice and Larry Fitzgerald. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2018.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
