Dallas Cowboys: Willie Colon

Flozell Adams: 'I'm a Steeler'

January, 27, 2011
PITTSBURGH -- Offensive tackle Flozell Adams spent the majority of his career with the Dallas Cowboys. But that was the last team he cared to talk about on Wednesday.

"I'm a Steeler," Adams said, dodging any questions in the locker room about Dallas. "So that's how we roll."

After a dozen years with the Cowboys, Adams is the starting right tackle for the AFC champion Pittsburgh Steelers, who will play the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XLV at Cowboys Stadium.

"It would mean just as much, if not more, for me to win it for Flozell," Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said. "To go back to Dallas and he's never had a chance to go to a Super Bowl. To get to play in one, and it's in Dallas, I want to win one for him as much as I do myself."

Steelers reach out to Flozell Adams

June, 29, 2010
Jordan Woy, the agent for former Cowboys left tackle Flozell Adams, said his client is visiting the Steelers today.

The Steelers just lost right tackle Willie Colon for potentially the season with an Achilles injury.

Adams hasn't played right tackle since his rookie year, 1998, but he might move to the right side if needed in this case.

The Cowboys cut Adams to go younger at the left tackle position, giving it to Doug Free, who is 26. Adams is 35.

When veterans get released, there is a chance they don't get picked up right away, and that was the case with Adams. When someone gets hurt, another free agent player is looked at.

Adams played well last season, but he did give up a team-high eight sacks and committed 12 penalties, tops on the offensive line.

In the playoff loss to the Vikings, Adams was knocked out of that game with a strained right calf in the second quarter and didn't return. It was the last time Adams would play for the Cowboys. He was the longest tendured players on the team, drafted in the second round in 1998.

Stephen Bowen upset about Hofstra

December, 3, 2009
IRVING -- It was revealed today that Hofstra University is dropping its football program, citing financial and a lack of interest on campus.

Hofstra, a private school, is located in Hempstead, Long Island.

The school has produced several NFL players including Wayne Chrebet, Willie Colon, Marques Colston and the Cowboys' Stephen Bowen, who was a two-year starter.

"I didn't see it coming at all," Bowen said. "All the money our school has, a private school, it just doesn't make sense to me. I don't know what to say. It kind of hurt me a little bit. It's terrible. It makes me not even want to go back there. It's like I didn't play there."

School officials said it wasn't an easy decision. After a two-year review of how the school spent its money on athletics, it was determined a cut was needed.

"I just don't get it, it just doesnt make sense to me, it just hurts, man," Bowen said. "The athletic director [Jack Hayes] he can reach out to me if he's trying to keep the program but if hes not trying to do anything like that I have nothing to say to him."
