The Dallas Cowboys have released controversial wide receiver Terrell Owens, sources told ESPN’s Michael Smith late Wednesday.
In late February, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones did not deny the team was discussing the possible release of Owens. Owens’ future was brought up again in meetings at Valley Ranch on Wednesday, but Jones had not made a final decision when most people left the building, a source told ESPN.com’s Matt Mosley.
“There are several decisions on our roster we have to look at,” Jones said in February. “This is the time of year we do that. I’m not trying to be trite, but as you all know we’re evaluating players in college, we’re evaluating free agents and we’re evaluating our own roster. This is an ongoing thing, not any different than this time last year.”
