Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Terrell Owens(notes) was not going to be a dominant part of the team's offense and he had to be let go so younger players — like Sam Hurd(notes), Miles Austin(notes) and veteran Roy Williams — could find comfortable roles in the Dallas offensive scheme.
Jones told the Dallas Morning News: "Frankly, the most basic reason that I changed my mind regarding Terrell Owens was the ability to maximize the potential of Roy Williams, Miles Austin, Sam Hurd, the running backs and our tight ends. That was the most fundamental thing.
"We wanted to take advantage of where we are with the talent we have on offense. You shouldn't have Terrell unless he's a dominant part of your offense or you're trying to put him in that kind of role in your offense.
"If for any reason you want to come off of that and spread it around or use different parts of your offense, then you shouldn't have him because that's not the best use of having Terrell Owens on your team.''
