It's Parcells and Glenn again - this time with Cowboys


NFL Notes: Green Bay gets draft pick in trade for wide receiver

The Associated Press

IRVING, Texas - Of the former players coach Bill Parcells could have brought to join him in Dallas, Terry Glenn might have been least likely. Instead, he's the first.

Parcells traded for the receiver he once derisively called "she," giving up an undisclosed draft pick Friday to the Green Bay Packers. Glenn restructured his contract, getting a five-year deal tailored to help the Cowboys' salary cap.

The Cowboys also re-signed offensive lineman Flozell Adams to a $25 million, five-year contract. His cap figure for the upcoming season could be as low as $2.5 million.

Parcells and Glenn have patched up their relationship since Parcells' infamous insult.

"Not only are they on good terms, they never should have been separated," Glenn's agent, Jimmy Gould, said. "The 'she' comment was backed up by a true friendship right away."

Parcells, then with New England, made Glenn the seventh pick of the 1996 draft, and he responded with 90 catches for 1,132 yards and six touchdowns. Parcells left for the New York Jets, and injuries and off-field troubles limited Glenn to just one more 1,000-yard season.

MORE TRADES: St. Louis traded running back Trung Canidate to Washington for guard David Loverne and a fourth-round draft pick. Canidate had 595 yards rushing and receiving in 2000 but totaled only 79 yards last season.

REDSKINS: Washington signed free agent guard Randy Thomas. A four-year starter with the New York Jets, Thomas agreed to a seven-year, $28 million deal with a $7 million signing bonus.

• Philadelphia traded cornerback Al Harris and a fourth-round pick in this year's draft to Green Bay for a second-round draft pick.

Harris started 21 games since joining the Eagles off waivers from Tampa Bay in 1998. In five seasons, he had 171 tackles and seven interceptions and knocked down 41 passes.

• Tight end Mark Campbell was traded by Cleveland to Buffalo for a middle-round draft pick in 2004. Campbell had 46 catches in 46 games with the Browns.

EMMITT'S OPTIONS: Emmitt Smith began his search for a new team after being released Thursday by Dallas after 13 seasons.

"Let's just say there's been some confirmed interest from teams," Werner Scott, Smith's business manager, said Friday. "I think he has a good feeling of the things he'd like to look at in terms of where his next place of employment will be."

BILLS: Linebacker Jeff Posey agreed to terms with Buffalo after playing for Houston last season. Terms were not released.

Posey, a five-year veteran, was credited with 60 tackles, eight sacks and two forced fumbles last year. He also had one interception.

PATRIOTS: The team re-signed long snapper Lonie Paxton, who would have been a restricted free agent. Paxton, 24, joined the Patriots in 2000 and has appeared in 51 consecutive games, including three playoff games.

STEELERS: Backup tight end Jerame Tuman signed a three-year contract. He finished the last two seasons as a starter after injuries to Mark Bruener and had 12 catches for 159 yards in four seasons.
