Big News Today For Cowboys Fans

Lots of new developments came about at Valley Ranch today.  First was the announcement of a partial reinstatment of Adam “Pacman” Jones by Commissioner Roger Goodell and then the extension of Terrell Owens’ contract.  Both appear to be positives for the team as they now will most likely have Owens locked up for the remainder of his career and Jones can at least begin practicing with his new teammates.

The official press conference regarding Owens’ new contract will be sometime tomorrow, but all indications seem to be that it is a 3-year, $27 million deal that actually saved the Cowboys some on this year’s cap.  He is guaranteed about $13 million of that with only $5.7 million of it counting this year.  The deal is very similar to the one Randy Moss received from the Pats earlier this year.

As for Jones, he will be allowed to attend OTA’s, training camp and preseason games with a final ruling on his eligility to be made sometime prior to Sep. 1 just before the start of the regular season.  Of course, all of this depends on his continuing to toe the line and stay out of any trouble with the law between now and then.  If his recent attitude change holds up, the Cowboys just might be able to field one of the most talented secondarys in the game and possibly boost their anemic kick return stats as well.

Things are looking bright heading into TC with only a few minor issues still to be resolved, such as Chris Canty’s and Ken Hamlin’s contracts.  But these will also likely be resolved in the next month prior to July 15th.

Hold your heads high, Cowboys fans, we’ve certainly got lots of reasons to expect nothing but great things this season!
