Terrell Owens pointed to quarterback Tony Romo as one of the reasons his tenure ended with the Dallas Cowboys.

In a radio interview Friday in Dallas, Owens said he knows Romo "had a hand" in his departure with the Cowboys after three season.

"With that situation, dude, I've kind of lost my respect for that situation," Owens said. ""Man, that's a guy I shed tears for, I went to bat for."

Owens mentioned his complaint of not getting the ball more while Romo regularly threw to tight end Jason Witten, a good friend of the quarterback.

"I wasn't the only one that felt that way," Owens said. "I think that's what's really misconstrued is that my passion and things that I say can be viewed that I'm being selfish and it's all about me, but my goal has always been about winning a championship, and I think if you really ask my teammates that, they'll really convey that and they'll tell you honestly that's what I'm about."

Owens is now a player/part-owner of the Allen Wranglers with the Indoor Football League. He underwent knee surgery last June for a torn ligament and received no offers to play from an NFL team.

The controversial wideout last played in the NFL with Cincinnati in 2010, hauling in 72 receptions for 983 yards and nine touchdowns. He had 38 scoring passes in three seasons with Dallas from 2007-09.

A six-time Pro Bowler, Owens ranks second in NFL history with 15,934 receiving yards and and is tied for second 153 touchdown receptions.
