Dez Bryant has played in celebrity basketball and baseball games with Terrell Owens this summer. They are both extremely athletically gifted and in outstanding shape. So, how about the two both lining up at wide receiver for the Cowboys this season? The Cowboys could use a veteran No. 3 wide receiver. Bryant declined to give a detailed answer to that hypothetical question when asked about it Friday. "From what I see, he's a great guy," Bryant said before adding, "I don't really want to speak too much on that." Bryant was attending a Red Bull 7-on-7 high school football event in Dallas. Also in attendance was teammate Jason Witten. The Cowboys tight end was teammates with Owens for three seasons in Dallas. But like Bryant, he didn't have much to say about how he'd feel having Owens as a teammate again. "It would be indifferent for me," Witten said. "I think it would be hard for me to make a comment on it really. I'm just out of that situation and let those guys handle that." Owens is seeking an opportunity to return to the NFL after missing the entire 2011 season. Last month, Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones encouraged Owens, 38, to reach out to him for advice. "He's still got the ability to be quite a threat as a receiver," Jones said. "I would advise him if that he still has got the heart and he does to continue to try to get on with an NFL team." The Cowboys have a wide-open competition at the No. 3 receiver spot but it's unlikely that they'd be willing to take on an outspoken and highly-publicized player like Owens.
