WAS WITTEN WERDER’S SOURCE?

Posted by Mike Florio on December 12, 2008, 5:09 p.m. EST

As it turns out, Terrell Owens’ suspicions regarding teammate Jason Witten might have been on the mark.

The talk in the Cowboys locker room is that Witten was one of the sources for Ed Werder’s recent ESPN item, which has sparked a firestorm within the organization.

Per a league source, center Andre Gurode and receiver Roy Williams called out Witten in a team meeting regarding their belief that he has been talking out of school to Werder, accusing Witten and/or his agent of feeding the information to Werder — as the song "Back Stabbers" played in the background.

According to our source (and it pains us to type this), Owens isn’t as bad as he’s made out to be in the media (i.e., by ESPN).

"Ed Werder didn’t make anything up," the source said.  "Witten or his agent gave the story."

And here’s where it gets really interesting.  Witten’s agent is Jimmy Sexton.  And Sexton represents — you guessed it — former Cowboys coach Bill Parcells.

Parcells wanted no part of Owens, and presumably Parcells would love nothing more than to see the Cowboys fail to make the playoffs in the same year that Parcells is in the process of propelling the previously 1-15 Fins toward the postseason.

We’re not saying that Tuna has his finger in this one, after all he’s not the kind of guy who’d stick his nose in business that doesn’t pertain to him.  We’re just pointing out the straight line from Witten to Sexton to Parcells, who by the way drafted Witten in 2003, the same year that Parcells signed Romo as an undrafted free agent.

I'm not sure what to make of this.  I wouldn't be surprised at all if Parcells is trying to sabotage this organization.  Considering that the guy was two timing Jerry behind his back while he was here that wouldn't be out of the norm for him.

But if Witten is talking to Werder that is low.  Maybe it's just his agent who is doing it, but I really hope Witten is not talking to ESPN because I would lose a lot of respect for him.  But like I said I'm hoping it's just his agent doing the bidding of Parcells.
