T.O. issues ominous warning to Cowboys star Dak Prescott


[jwplayer CBTL9V81-01Ju7kF1]

Former Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens took to Twitter over the weekend to defend current Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott, saying he shouldn’t be the fall guy for a lackluster season.

The idea that Prescott turned the locker room against star receiver Dez Bryant — as some in his Twitter battle claimed — is ludicrous, Owens said.

When asked about his tweet by TMZ, Owens said, “I just didn’t like the way they were trying to say Dak is the problem or Dak is putting the blame or turning people against Dez. That’s not fair to Dak.”

Owens claims Bryant has done that himself.

Owens, who played in Dallas from 2006-2008, also said that he was run out of town and he didn’t want to see that happen to Prescott.

“Consider this … [offensive coordinator Jason] Garrett and [quarterback Tony] Romo posse’d up to get rid of me, Garrett got Wade (Phillips) fired, injuries got rid of Romo,” Owens tweeted.

“NOW u wanna blame Dak?! Stop it!!”

TMZ also asked Owens about this claim that he was run out of town.

“Everybody knows what went down,” Owens told TMZ.

Prescott and Bryant struggled this season as Dallas limped to a 9-7 record after going 13-3 in 2016. Prescott had a quarterback rating of 86.6, throwing 22 touchdowns and 13 interceptions for 3,324 yards.

Bryant had 69 catches for 838 yards, but was among the leaders in dropped passes.

Meanwhile, Owens is one of 15 finalists for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The inductees will be announced Feb. 3 in Minneapolis.
