Terrell Owens continues to wait for an opportunity to return to the NFL and recently did an interview where he again stated that he still has something to offer a team.
Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones encouraged Owens, 38, to reach out to him for advice last month.
Jones added: "He's still got the ability to be quite a threat as a receiver. 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."
During the interview, Owens responded to Jones' comments.
"Jerry's a great guy," Owens said. "Obviously, he gave me an opportunity in 2006 and I had a great three years there with the Cowboys. That's the type of guy Jerry is. It goes beyond just the football relationship. I think he's done that not only with myself, he's done that with a number of his players. You think about the Troys, the Emmitts the Michaels, Charles Haley.
"These relationships continue to go on even when football stops. So I think that's what's most notable and admirable about Jerry."
As far as where Owens would fit on a depth chart, he says he doesn't care if he is labeled the No. 4 wide receiver on a team.
"My numbers speak for themselves," Owens added. "It's not a matter of performance, I think everyone saw that my last year in Cincinnati. Once I get on the field I play football. Everything else is out the window."
In 2010, Owens caught 72 passes for 983 yards and nine touchdowns with the Bengals.
Perhaps Owens is hoping for a return to Dallas. 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, someone who said in April that Tony Romo played a part in Owens' departure from the Cowboys in 2009.

Dear Jerry Jones,
I am writing to ask that you consider signing Terrell Owens this season.
This is not a sympathy plea but more so a suggestion to roll the dice.
