Cowboys Waive Glenn, Hit Practice Field

It was the first day of practice for the Cowboys at training camp on Friday.

It was also the last day as a Cowboy for Terry Glenn.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Friday afternoon the team will waive the wide receiver. Jones made the decision after weeks of dispute over Glenn signing an injury waiver. Glenn played just one game last year after having two knee surgeries.

Glenn told ESPN Friday he was ready to sign a split-salary agreement, but Jerry Jones was not so sure. Jones spoke to the media about his decision. 

"With our situation, we wanted to create the incentive for the receivers we've got and create an opportunity for them," Jones said. "See if they've got the opportunity to get the job done here with all of that weighed into it."

Terry Glenn's story shifted the focus from the first day of practice.

The team hit the practice field in helmets and shirts. More than 5,000 turned out to great the team. Los Lonely Boys sang the National Anthem before practice.  Jerry Jones made a presentation to the mayor of Oxnard.

California is excited to have the Cowboys back and the players are excited to be back.

"I'm enjoying it," cornerback Adam Jones said. "When we get the new stadium it's going to be 20 times worse than this. I enjoy it. Actually, I play better with the people behind me."

"This is good to see it, just because it seems like one of the biggest crowds I've been out here with," tight end Jason Witten said. "This is my third time coming. It's neat to be out here and be a part of this and to see the support you have here."
