The Terrell Owens “Please Hire Me” tour continues, as the controversial wide receiver tries to get past his ill-fated stint with the Allen Wranglers.
In an interview with Yahoo.com (via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News), Owens expressed his admiration for Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. (The full video can be seen here).
“Jerry’s a great guy,” Owens said. “Obviously, he gave me an opportunity in 2006 and I had a great three years there with the Cowboys. That’s the type of guy Jerry is. It goes beyond just the football relationship. I think he’s done that not only with myself, he’s done that with a number of his players. You think about the Troy [Aikman]s, the Emmitt [Smith]s the Michael [Irvin]s, Charles Haley.
“These relationships continue to go on even when football stops. So I think that’s what’s most notable and admirable about Jerry.”
