Owens acknowledges that his age — he’s 41 — might get in the way of a team offering him a job, but said he thought Tony Romo’s injury was partially a product of a receiver missing a check and that a more experienced wideout could have kept that from happening:
“I’m not sure what the situation is,” Owens said. “My name may have come up in discussion as far as bringing me in. But again, a lot of people are going to factor in my age as far as why I can’t play.”
“We all know what happened when I was there, and there were some things said where it kind of maybe fractured the relationship between myself and Witten and Romo,” Owens said. “Time has passed, and hopefully, they know that I’ve moved on beyond that.
Maybe, hopefully, they have. But for me, it’s all about giving myself an opportunity. That’s all I ever really wanted.”
