We reported here a few days ago that the Cowboys may have an interest in unhappy Falcons WR Joe Horn, a player that could come in and basically be Terry Glenn if things between Glenn and the team don’t get settled. Now the Dallas Morning News is reporting the Horn to Dallas tidbit is not going to happen, and it’s coming from the mouth of the man who signs the checks – Jerry Jones.
Jones told ESPN during the AFL Dallas Desperado’s game at the American Airlines Center that Horn is not in the teams plans. “Yeah, that’s not correct,” Jones said. “I haven’t expressed any interest there and haven’t evaluated him. That’s just not correct.” Horn is 36, so him coming in and having any sort of impact on the Cowboys in 2008 is probably just a pipe dream.
The Falcons are due to owe Horn $2.5 mil in 2008, and they likely with their recent movement to get younger want to either trade Horn or dump him. Someone will likely give Horn a look this season, but right now, he does not look like he’s on the Cowboys radar.
