It sounds as though 49-year-old Terrell Owens is eyeing a comeback to an NFL, specifically with the Dallas Cowboys. At least, that is what it appeared to be happening before more information came out.
Owens and his agent have been campaigning for the 49-year-old Hall of Famer to receive a tryout with the Cowboys.
“We’ve been in constant communication with Jerry Jones’ office over the last few days about the possibility of him returning to the Cowboys,” Owens’ agent Gregory D.L Daniel, Esq. told Wilson. “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 (Jackson) and he looked great. He didn’t drop a pass.
Daniel told Wilson that Owens recently ran the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds.
