Report: T.O. has 'trust' issues with Jerry Jones

On the same day that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones called Terrell Owens a "credible" source, the receiver took a few parting shots at his former boss. T.O.'s been on a barnstorming tour promoting his football camp on Dallas radio stations, but he saved his strongest comments for AOL Fanhouse's Calvin Watkins. T.O. told Watkins that he was disappointed that he'd been assured twice that he wouldn't be released.

"I'd say it hurt," Owens said. "I was very disappointed, especially when you established a lot of trust gained for three years that I was there, and when somebody blatantly tells you you're not going anywhere on two different occasions, and you've established that bond. If you don't have a man's word, and it doesn't stand for anything, there's really nothing left and there's not a whole lot of trust."

And since T.O. will basically spend the entire season airing his grievances against the Cowboys organization, we'll pull the plug on him at some point. How does now sound?
