ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Cowboys cornerback Adam Jones put some spice into Dallas' visit to Denver this week by taking aim at Denver receiver Brandon Marshall. He has been often compared to Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens and he even came into the NFL with the nickname of "Baby T.O."

Jones, though, isn't buying it. "He's nowhere near T.O.," Jones said of Marshall.

But that was not all.

"First of all, T.O. is 10 times faster than Brandon Marshall," Jones said. "And 10 times stronger than Brandon Marshall. You can sometimes get your hand on 'B' at the line. T.O. has a good thing where he snatches and whips. I wouldn't say he's nowhere near T.O."

When told that Jones took some shots at his top receiver, Denver quarterback Jay Cutler said Jones could say whatever he liked. Then Cutler made a comment that he gets to face Denver star cornerback Champ Bailey every day in practice, a veiled shot at Jones.

Owens took the high road when asked about Marshall, saying he took Marshall's nickname as a compliment.
