NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Owens, Giants

Terrell Owens will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this year, but he announced on Thursday that he won’t be attending his own induction ceremony. Not one to follow convention, Owens also insists that he can still play in the NFL at the age of 44. In an appearance on FS1, Owens said that he could be a contributor for the Cowboys this year, if called upon.

Yeah,” Owens said when asked if he could catch 30-40 passes for Dallas (transcription via the Dallas News). “And put them in a situation to get into the playoffs and the opportunity to win a championship? Absolutely.”

Ten years ago, the Cowboys rewarded Owens with a four-year, $34MM extension. It’s unlikely that Dallas will give him a call this offseason, though questions persist about their wide receiver group following the departure of Dez Bryant.

Here’s more from the NFC East:

  • The Redskins‘ wide receiver is very fluid behind starters Josh Doctson, Jamison Crowder, and Paul Richardson, as Rich Tandler of NBC Sports Washington writes. Maurice Harris, rookie Trey Quinn, Robert Davis, or Brian Quick could end up as the team’s No. 4 receiver and none of them are assured a place on the final 53-man roster. The Redskins are expected to keep six wide receivers in total, so at least one of those players will miss the cut on Sept. 1.
  • There’s a chance the Redskins will employ a fullback this season, coach Jay Gruden says (Twitter link via John Keim of ESPN.com). So far in practice, Elijah Wellman has been operating as the team’s top FB. Niles Paul previously saw reps at fullback, but he is now with the Jaguars.
  • The Giants have hired Mark Koncz as their director of player personnel, a source tells Darin Gantt of PFT. Koncz, who previously served as the pro personnel director in Carolina under Dave Gettleman, was hired on a temporary basis earlier this year. Now, he has a permanent role in the front office.

    As a cowboys fan I say let TO try! I mean I’m sure he’ll suck and be cut right away but bring him in. He could even play te a little.

      This team has enough distractions throughout the year, and he’s not one you want to add to that list.

        What are you talking about, distractions? We have enough guys on the roster not playing due to suspension. Bring him in, make training camp interesting. This season is going to suck anyway.

          I think you’re wrong. This season is going to be a playoff season

    Skins should just use Perine at FB. Then you have him and guice on the field at the same time. Good thunder and lightning combo.

    Lmao!! TO was just trashing Garret as a coach saying he’s w does he still have his job and now he wants to play for him! It will never happen but it’d be hilarious to see TO run from those comments and start kissing butt..

    TO is just trash, hes a cry baby and a drama queen! Hes just like Dez, has to have everything his way an if he doesnt throws a fit about it. So hes not going to the ceremony in canton, screw em! At that point i believe they should strip his HOF from him! Im positive there are a bunch of other players who would love to take his spot.
