Cowboys to pay Owens' $3 million roster bonus; Glenn needs knee surgery
IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday he plans to pay Terrell Owens' $3 million roster bonus, which means the wide receiver will be back for the final season of his three-year, $25 million contract.
"Yes, we are going to have Terrell back," Jones told beat reporters at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala. Jones added that a contract extension for Owens is something he would consider "down the line."
Owens finished with 81 catches for 1,355 yards and a team-record 15 touchdown receptions.
The future of fellow wide receiver Terry Glenn appears uncertain, Jones said. Glenn missed 15 games after arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. He will need microfracture surgery on the knee, a procedure that typically requires a year of recovery time.
"That's something I will sit down over the days ahead to talk to him about," Jones said.
