Cowboys ink Owens to 4-year deal


DALLAS — The Dallas Cowboys and star wide receiver Terrell Owens agreed to terms on a four-year contract yesterday, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Citing sources, the newspaper said the contract was worth $34 million for Owens, who will turn 35 in December and is entering his third season with the Cowboys.

Owens was in the third and final season of a $25-million year contract with the Cowboys.

He has lived up to his end of the deal in his first two campaigns, hauling in 186 receptions and scoring 28 touchdowns while going over 1,000 yards both times.

The new deal will run through the 2011 season and give Owens the security that he lacked and led to messy departures with both the San Francisco 49ers and Philadelph­ia Eagles over contract demands.

Owens has 882 receptions - ninth in NFL history — in 11 seasons with the 49ers, Eagles and Cowboys.
