The Dallas Cowboys have won games in each of the last two weeks, but also suffered gigantic losses in each of the last two weeks. First, it was Dez Bryant with a broken bone in his foot. This past week, Tony Romo fractured his clavicle and is likely out for two months. Former Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens believes he knows how to stop the bleeding, and it’s by signing him.
Romo is likely out for eight weeks, and the team has Brandon Weeden in as the starter now. The Dallas Cowboys have looked at a couple free agent quarterbacks, such as Josh Johnson and Jason Campbell, for workouts.
Bryant? Well, he had surgery on his foot this past week and is likely going to be out at least another month, and the Cowboys really could use someone else is the wide receiving corps. Terrell Owens believes he is that someone.

As the Sporting News reported, Terrell Owens appeared on the Rich Eisen Show to talk about the injuries piling up for the Cowboys. The 41-year-old former NFL wide receiver had his agent reach out to the team to see about signing him.
Sure, he didn’t have the best relationship with the Cowboys back in 2006-2008 when he was with the team, but he knows he could help them now.
“We all know what happened when I was there, and there were some things said where it may have fractured the relationship between myself and Witten and Romo. You know, time has passed, and hopefully they know that I’ve moved on beyond that, and maybe hopefully they have. But for me, it’s all about giving myself an opportunity. That’s all I ever really wanted.”
Owens obviously acknowledged the problems he had with Tony Romo and tight end Jason Witten, but there is more there. T.O. is looking to still play in the NFL, and it’s apparent that he just doesn’t want his career to be done yet.
Less than a week ago, Owens was named as a first ballot nominee for the Pro Football Hall of Fame along with Brett Favre. ESPN reported that there are 93 nominees including 51 on offense, 33 on defense, nine from special teams, and 15 coaches.
The list will be trimmed to 25 semifinalists in November and then to 15 finalists in January, and then eventually down to four to eight members being elected.
With injuries to Tony Romo and Dez Bryant, the Cowboys also have Jason Witten with two sprained ankles. His status for Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons is also unknown so some help would certainly be appreciated, but is Terrell Owens the answer to their prayers?
