T.O. Gets a New Gig

Published March 9, 2009

Say what you want about troubled, well-traveled wideout Terrell Owens, but the man knows how to get a gig.

Cut by the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday, Owens was snatched up by the Buffalo Bills and signed to a one-year, $6.5 million deal – $4 million of that is guaranteed.

Last year, Owens, 35, grabbed a respectable 69 passes for 1,052 yards and 10 touchdowns. However – as has been the case with the San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles – the Cowboys came to learn firsthand what a disruptive force Owens can be off the field.

The Cowboys were so willing to unload the Owens baggage that they lost the $12 million they gave him to sign and another $9 million to get out of town.

“I’m leaving America’s team (for) North America’s team,” Owens said at a news conference. “I must move on, and it’s another beginning for me,” Owens said.
