IRVING, Texas -- Even on the day the Dallas Cowboys make Terrell Owens happy, they're still facing drama surrounding a receiver.

This time, it's Terry Glenn.

After a new conference announcing Owens' contract extension, team owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday that Glenn failed a physical after the season and still hasn't passed it because of problems with the right knee that was operated on twice last season.

Jones wants Glenn to agree to accept a $500,000 injury settlement if he can't play this season. His base salary is $1.74 million.

"It would surprise me if everything doesn't get worked out," Jones said.

Glenn played only in the regular-season finale last season, but didn't catch any passes. He had two catches in Dallas' only playoff game.

"I paid him $5 million last year and we got four plays," Jones said.
