Johnson Cut. Do We Have A Causal Chain?

New, comments

Terrell Owens was released by the Eagles roughly an hour ago.

Keyshawn Johnson has just been cut by the Cowboys.

Can we assume a causal relationship between the two events, or is it just coincidence? Everybody knows T.O. is forever gone from Philadelphia, but was Johnson cut for cap reasons or elbowed aside for T.O.?

It's not clear cutting Keyshawn means losing him. He could be re-signed to a different deal. This Star-Telegram story suggests it was strictly business. The discourse between Johnson and the Cowboys lacks rancor. Keyshawn mentioned that Dallas will get a chance to match or top any offer he gets on the open market.

Or we may be entering a new phase of the Jones/Parcells Era.
