The Dallas Cowboys picked up their $5 million option on veteran wide receiver Terry Glenn.
The Cowboys took the first step in retaining their two starting wide receivers for 2007 on Friday when the team picked up the $5 million roster bonus of Terry Glenn.
Terrell Owens, the other starting receiver, is due a $3 million roster bonus in June. Team officials have said they expect Owens to return.
Glenn, who will earn a base salary of $820,000 in 2007, was second on the team in receiving yards (1,047), catches (70) and touchdown receptions (six) last season. It was the second consecutive season that Glenn finished with over 1,000 receiving yards. He also was the first Cowboys receiver with consecutive 1,000 yard seasons since Michael Irvin did it in 1997 and 1998.
New receivers coach Ray Sherman worked with Glenn in Green Bay and is excited that he’s returning. “I’ve talked to Terry and he’s very excited,” Sherman said. “Terry is a tremendous player and he’s worked really hard to get himself physically bigger and keep his speed. He’s a great route runner with great hands and he’s an outstanding player. A big-time player who I’m looking forward to working with.”
Glenn has been one of the few free agent bright spots for the Cowboys in recent years, so keeping him was a no-brainer. Still, signing that $5 million check has to hurt.
