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.
