Cowboys owner Jerry Jones held a news conference Tuesday to announce that country music legend George Strait is headlining the first major event at his new stadium in June. Afterwards, he was asked about the status of wide receiver Terrell Owens.

"You and I both know that the one you're asking about all the time, if I gave you the answer that you want to hear, then you would have already had it," he said. "So the fact you don't have it ought to tell you something."

You know I'm never one to read into things, but that statement certainly makes it seem like T.O. will return. I'm also told that Jones became very testy when he was asked about the Cowboys' locker-room chemistry. He thinks that particular angle is completely overrated and that's why he's doing very little to change the culture at Valley Ranch.

In other news, head coach Wade Phillips officially named himself defensive coordinator. That's right folks. The Cowboys will not fill Brian Stewart's position with another body. To my knowledge, the Cowboys will be the only team in the league with a head coach-defensive coordinator.

Update: Lovie Smith doesn't have a defensive coordinator in Chicago.

Qadry Ismail thinks it is time for the Cowboys and Terrell Owens to part ways.
