NFC East: T.O. signing
Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley
As we discussed earlier, Terrell Owens' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, took a parting shot at the Cowboys in an interview on ESPN on Saturday night.
"[Owens] thanks the Cowboys organization for releasing him and adding to his bank account," said Rosenhaus.
The receiver was set to make $5.7 million in base salary and a roster bonus in '09 with the Cowboys. He'll make $6.5 million with the Bills. So Rosenhaus is accurate in saying T.O. will come out $800,000 ahead in '09, but as Todd Archer points out on DallasNews.com, the wide receiver was scheduled to make $7.5 million in 2010 and $7 million in 2011 with the Cowboys.
There's a good chance he'll never see another contract like that again. But in the event that T.O. scores 14 touchdowns and has 1,300 yards while leading the Bills to the playoffs, something tells me he'll get one more lucrative contract -- even at age 36.
