Terrell Owens still manages to make news in Dallas, even though he hasn’t played for the Cowboys since 2008.

His latest shots came a couple of days ago in an interview where he blamed Tony Romo for his release. No surprises there. In light of this “news,” and a part of the Dallas Cowboys history in quotes series, here are some quotes featuring the former Dallas receiver.
