Tight end Jason Witten finally discussed the Cowboys decision to part ways with petulant receiver Terrell Owens.
Appearing at a charity event for the March of Dimes along with Nascar's Denny Hamlin, Witten initally feigned ignorance about the Cowboys making any notable roster changes.
"We made roster changes?" he joked. "I didn't hear about that."
But Witten, who has avoided media inquiries on the subject since Owens was released last month, got serious. He said he was disappointed his name got dragged into the muck last season when stories were written about infighting between him, Owens and Romo.
He said Owens was a great player for the Cowboys and wished him luck in Buffalo. But he said the Cowboys' main focus now was putting last year in the past and moving forward as a team.
Regarding all the talk of change this offseason from the roster to coach Wade Phillips changing his ways, Witten said the biggest change the Cowboys need is more wins after last season's embarrassing 9-7 finish.
Are you better without T.O.?
"I don't know about that. Terrell was a great player. I think I was a better player because of him and what he brought to the team. His track record speaks for itself. He has been good wherever he has been. He is going to help Buffalo a lot. But we have to move on from that. I have benefitted tremendously from having him outside. I will be the first to say that I was a better player because of him. But decisions were made and we have to move on."
