Glenn Says Dallas Wants Injury Settlement
Dallas wide receiver Terry Glenn claims that the Cowboys want an injury settlement, according to a report on ESPN.com. The team reportedly asked Glenn to sign a $500,000 injury settlement, which would free Dallas of having to pay him his full salary if he's not able to play this season because of a lingering knee injury. "I should have seen this coming," Glenn told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram by text message.
Pacman Met With Goodell
Suspended cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell about his possible reinstatement last week, according to a report on ESPN.com.

Cowboys' WR Glenn Expected To Miss Workouts
Cowboys' wide receiver Terry Glenn is expected to miss the team's workouts this week, according to The Dallas Morning News. Jerry Jones doesn't want to push Glenn at this point in the offseason, instead hoping that he'll heal over the long run. "I just want to play football," said Glenn, who will attend meetings if he doesn't practice. "I'm frustrated, but I agree with what Jerry said in the meeting." Glenn had two surgeries on his knee last year, one to remove a cyst and another to repair loose cartilage. He'll need micro-fracture surgery in the future. At 33, there are severe doubts as to whether Glenn can comeback from the injury.

T.O. Said No To 'Dancing With The Stars'
Terrell Owens turned down a gig on the wildly popular television show 'Dancing With The Stars' recently, according to a report on Yahoo.com. He was reportedly offered a slot on the recent run of the show, where Miami defensive end Jason Taylor placed second. "They asked me to do that last year and I graciously declined," Owens said. "I don?t need to get on national TV to show people I can dance. I do that 16, 17 weeks out of the year. I?ve been doing it all my career." Owens recently made his acting debut on the sitcom 'Under One Roof'. "I think I surprised a lot of people with my performance," Owens said. "For me, I feel like I can act. That?s what I want to do. If I wasn?t really comfortable with it and didn?t think I could really do it, then I wouldn?t have done it."
Romo Determined To Improve
Dallas quarterback Tony Romo is determined to improve his passing game this offseason, according to NFL.com. "I don't want to tell you just because they're important to me, and I want to continue to improve in certain areas," Romo said. "But I'm pretty excited about a couple areas that are taking shape. I think it's going to allow me to take the next step this year, hopefully." He has chosen to work on his football game rather than hit the golf links this summer. "It's a little deeper than (fundamentals)," Romo said, smiling. "It's good. I'll tell you guys about it later, once it comes to full fruition."
Pacman Jones Pays Debt To Vegas Casino
Suspended cornerback Pacman Jones sent a check to a Las Vegas casino Friday to pay off a $20,000 gambling debt, according to a report in The Dallas Morning News. Jones received three markers from the casino in September. Because of how long it took the cornerback to pay the debts, Clark County attorneys requested that charges be filed against the trouble Cowboy. "It's a non-story," agent Manny Arora said. "I think if this hadn't happened recently with some famous ex-athletes, I don't think this would've even popped up over $20,000." NBA legend Charles Barkley had similar issues recently, with his tally hitting $400,000.
Lawyer: Pacman To Pay Gambling Debt
The Cowboys' Adam ?Pacman? Jones intends to pay a $20,000 debt to a Las Vegas casino to settle a criminal complaint alleging the suspended player wrote three bad checks. ?We?ll pay the bill today, and there?s not going to be a warrant,? lawyer Manny Arora told The Associated Press by phone. ?We?re going to send a check today.?
Pacman The Receiver?
The Cowboys are thinking about using cornerback Pacman Jones as a wide receiver, according to ESPN.com. Team owner Jerry Jones reportedly admitted to the Fort Worth Star Telegram on Thursday morning that Dallas might ask Jones to learn the offensive playbook when he joins the team. "In my mind there isn't a player out there in a given game or looking at next year, that could make a bigger impact to take some of the heat off of Terrell [Owens] than Terry Glenn," Jones said. "I think potentially we could get some of those offensive plays that Adam 'Pacman' Jones ran over at Tennessee -- he had 15, 20 of them, got in the slot. That could help us there, too." He only caught two passes for 31 yards during his two-year career in Tennessee.
Pacman Passes Physical; Reinstatement Last Roadblock
Pacman Jones recently passed his physical, meaning that his reinstatement to the league is his only roadblock to officially joining the Cowboys, according to The Dallas Morning News. Even though he can't share the field with his teammates just yet, he has spent time with them as he attended tight end Jason Witten's charity bowling event on Sunday. "I think [Jones] can see it is possible," said Tank Johnson, who understands Pacman's situation, when asked what Jones can learn from him. "No matter how bad a situation you come from, you can still come out doing well and being successful." "I see a dude who knows he's on his last straw," Johnson said. "It's kind of like I was, and he's a dude who wants to prove everybody wrong and wants to get back on the field and be implemented into a family again."
