T.O. gets contract offer from Allen Wranglers
By Calvin Watkins
Former Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens was offered a six-figure contract to play for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League.
Former Cowboys wide receiver Drew Pearson, the general manager of the Wranglers, said owner Jon Frankel made the offer to Owens.
Owens' agent Drew Rosenhaus did not return a call seeking comment. However after another arena football team, the Chicago Rush, extended a contract to Owens on Wednesday, Rosenhaus said his client would only play in the NFL.
Tony Romo, who played with Owens from 2006-09, was asked about his former teammate.
"I'm really not sure what's going on out there," Romo said with a smile before ending his news briefing with reporters on Thursday.
The Wranglers play their home games at the Allen Event Center, about an hour away from downtown Dallas.
