T.O. Has Landed: Wide Receiver Suits Up For Minicamp

Terrell Owens once said he is a star among stars, and just like a super-star, the media was all over him at the start of Cowboys minicamp on Friday.

"It's something that comes with the territory," Owens said of the media attention.

T.O. had been quiet and out of sight since signing his three-year, $25 million deal in March, but no more.
The wide receiver faced the media and then put on a Cowboys uniform for the first time since signing.
It was also a more reserved Owens that what fans had normally seen.

"Philly (the Eagles) and last year, I just wash my hands of that," he said.

Owens' very public feuds and messy breakup with the Eagles and 49'ers still seemed to hang over his head like an invisible cloud. Over and over the same question: Could the same problems happen in Dallas?

"I've always felt like I'm part of a team despite what people might say," he explained. "I think anybody can be humbled."

This was the first time we saw T.O. with his new teammates although he said he's been with them all along. Everyone said he deserves another chance.

"I'm not going to worry about that because I don't see it happening here," said  guard Marco Rivera. "He's on this team, he's happy to be here I think and he's ready to play."

"I think we have to give him a clean slate," said tight end Jason Witten,  "because if you are worried about that you're always going to find something."

But the man tossing Owens the ball, had the greatest input.

"We've thrown just a couple of days," said quarterback Drew Bledsoe. "Just talked a little bit and he looks like what I expected him to look like. He's an explosive receiver that runs good routes, catches the ball well and I think he's going to be a great weapon for us."

Holding true to his promise not to discuss Terrell Owens, Coach Bill Parcells, who said he had his fill of T.O. questions a month ago.

"I talked about it 35 questions ago, what's new?" Parcells questioned.

 Owens said he has nothing but respect for his new coach and camaraderie with his teammates is already there, but he also said he's always played with a chip on his shoulder. There's only one thing changing that.

"It has a star on it now, how about that?" Owens said.
