Glenn Changes Tune, Wants To Remain A Cowboy

It seems WR Terry Glenn has reversed his position from earlier this month when he requested a trade from Dallas and was adamant about not signing an injury waiver requested by the Cowboys and agreed upon by his former agent.  Since then, he has fired his agent, hired a new one and been prevented from working out with his teammates.

According to new reports in the Dallas Morning-News, Glenn is now renewing efforts to remain in Dallas, “… what I want is to remain a Cowboy. I’ve been here for five years and I’ve made Dallas my home, and I would love nothing more than to be a Dallas Cowboy.”

Jerry Jones, in response, stated that he has “a lot of interest” in Terry Glenn, and he has had talks with Glenn and his new agent, James Gould.  He believes that something can be worked out between them as it was last year.  Glenn received most of his salary last season although he only played in four downs for the Cowboys with only 2 receptions in the playoff game against the Giants.

Earlier rumors had stated that Dallas and Jones had an interest in possibly signing Atlanta’s Joe Horn, who has voiced his unhappiness there, but Jones squashed those rumors on Saturday saying that he hasn’t shown any interest or evaluated Horn at all and there isn’t any truth to his coming to Dallas to replace Glenn.

So it appears Terry Glenn still has the inside track to stay on the Cowboys, for now, and all that is left for him to do is to get medically cleared to play and sign some type of injury waiver to appease the fears of Jerry Jones and company.   What’s the problem!  Just sign the waiver and you’re home-free, Glenn.  Oh, and don’t reinjure your knee this year and you’ll get your $1.7 million salary.  Easy enough, right?

“I want Jerry to understand that I know he has the ultimate power in everything that goes on with the Cowboys, and I’m not trying to challenge him in any way, shape or form,” Glenn told ESPN earlier this month.
