Glenn signs five-year, $20M deal with Cowboys

Dallas Cowboys receiver Terry Glenn signed a five-year, $20 million contract extension Monday.

Glenn's new contract, which runs through 2010 and replaces a previous contract that had one year remaining, comes just more than a week after Terrell Owens signed a three-year, $25 million deal with the Cowboys.

In the wake of Owens' deal, Glenn suggested last week he might seek to have his own deal upgraded. At the same time, Glenn said his contract would not be an issue and emphasized he would not skip offseason workouts or training camp.

"We've been trying to do something and have talked about it for a while. It finally came together," said Glenn's agent, Jimmy Gould. "He's excited about it. With he and T.O., it's a good deal."

Still regarded as a viable deep threat, even after 10 seasons in the league, Glenn forces secondaries to honor his speed and, in that regard, should be an excellent complement for Owens.

Glenn was to have earned a 2006 base salary of $2 million and would have been eligible for unrestricted free agency next spring.

Glenn caught 62 passes for 1,136 yards and a career-high seven touchdowns last season, his third in Dallas and first reunited with quarterback Drew Bledsoe. Glenn's other two 1,000-yard seasons were with Bledsoe in New England, as a rookie in 1996 and in 1999.

The 32-year-old receiver averaged 18.3 yards per catch last
season, a career high that tied for the NFL lead. Glenn also had
his first career rushing TD, a 6-yard end around in a 31-28 victory
over Kansas City in which he also scored on a 71-yard flea flicker -- his longest play since 1998, also from Bledsoe.

The last Cowboys player with 1,000 yards receiving was Raghib Ismail in 1999, the season Glenn caught 69 passes for 1,147 yards with the Patriots.

Bledsoe said he and Glenn "picked up where they left off" when they got back together last summer. That was evident during the season.

In 10 NFL seasons with the Patriots, Green Bay and Dallas, Glenn has 523 catches for 7,776 yards and 38 touchdowns. He has 138 catches for 2,290 yards and 14 TDs since being traded from Green Bay to Dallas in 2003, but missed 10 games in 2004 because of a foot injury.
