T.O. drops agent Rosenhaus, hires Woy
Terrell Owens announced Monday that he has ended his business relationship with longtime agent Drew Rosenhaus and has hired Jordan Woy.
Woy, who is based in Dallas, also represents Cowboys outside linebacker Anthony Spencer, kicker Dan Bailey and defensive ends Jason Hatcher and Kenyon Coleman.
"I am making changes in my life so I can continue my career as a professional football player," Owens said in a statement. "I have hired Jordan Woy as my new agent. It was important for me to hire someone who believes in my ability to help an NFL team and believes in me as a person.
"I love the game of football and I know I can help a team. I have had to go through some humbling times but I am more determined than ever to show a team that I can be a huge asset to them as a player and a team leader in the locker room.
"I am in the best shape of my life and preparing daily. I am looking for a team who will give me that chance and I know I will pay big dividends to them as a player and teammate."
Owens and Woy both attended at a charity basketball game Thursday at R.L. Turner High School in Carrollton. In an attempt to resurrect his NFL career, the 38-year-old wide receiver was playing for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League until he was released last Tuesday for not meeting the organization's expectations.
"To me, there's no question he could play in the NFL," former Cowboys standout and Wranglers general manager Drew Pearson said during a recent radio interview with Ben & Skin on 103.3 [KESN-FM]. "But it's not what happens between the lines with Terrell, it's how he handles things outside the lines, being Terrell Owens, dealing with the fans, being a good teammate."
Owens, who last played in the NFL for the Cincinnati Bengals in 2010, was a member of the Cowboys from 2006 to 2008.
