Ok, the on-going issue with Cowboys veteran receiver Terry Glenn hangs over this team until training camp begins July 25. The questions remain. ...Will TG sign the $500,000 waiver and bank that his knee will hold up?
Or will the Cowboys cut Glenn even if he signs and opt to bank on what they have -- Patrick Crayton as the No. 2 with Sam Hurd, Miles Austin and Isaiah Stanback as the WR depth along with help from TE Jason Witten and RB Felix Jones? An injury to Terrell Owens has the Cowboys looking at Crayton and Hurd as their starters.
Or will they still try to trade for another WR? That's if they can find a willing team.
Forget the media speculation about the Cowboys' showing interest in Falcons disgruntled wide receiver Joe Horn.
It was never a consideration at the team's Valley Ranch headquarters. Horn's agent called to see if there was interest. The Cowboys took 30 seconds to say, hell no. They believe Horn is washed up as a player.
They also believe Horn would be a bad fit in the lockerroom. So the Cowboys never had any interest in Horn.
That's why we at the Star-Telegram never reported it because there was never anything to it.
It was a non story. It takes two sides to show interest, not one.
In a quick follow to the story that ran in the June 26 edition of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram - http://www.star-telegram.com/sports/story/723884.html - the mother of Cole Ashworth said this past weekend was a major first for her son: "As you see in the photograph he has on shorts and that was because of Jason. He has never worn shorts out in the public before that day," said Cole's mother, Sheila, in an e-mail.
Cowboys Pro Bowl cornerback Terence Newman takes his personality to the ESPN airwaves this week. Newman will appear on NFL Live Thursday and Friday. He will be making the rounds while at ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Conn. as a guest on various shows and ESPN Radio. He will also do a live chat on ESPN.com Thursday. Any chance he will get to talk about anything besides Adam Jones and Pacman Jones?
Note to producer: No Roy Williams questions for Newman.
The Cowboys have canceled their final minicamp practice scheduled for 1:30 today. It was only going to be a one-hour final session to wrap up the three days. The Cowboys are instead conducting a family day for players and coaches with their families having lunch and hanging out.
Looks like Wade Phillips is keeping that family atmosphere around the team. Plus, the heat was pretty brutal on the players during yesterday's afternoon practice.
Cowboys guard Leonard Davis was forced to leave the afternoon practice after about 40 minutes due to cramps. He left to receive an IV in the training room and did not return. Nose tackle Tank Johnson left the practice early because of cramping to also receive an IV. Johnson returned to the field.
''Hot weather, you know,'' Wade Phillips said after practice.
