From the Star-Telegram:
Cowboys want more show from T.O.

IRVING - Is controversial receiver Terrell Owens getting off on the right foot in Dallas?
Several sources have noted that Owens has not been a regular participant in Cowboys coach Bill Parcells' off-season program.
His initial absences were understood because of a prior commitment, but Owens in the past has preferred to work with his own trainer.
Owens, who signed a three-year, $25 million contract with the Cowboys in March, was present at a Thursday workout.
His publicist, Kim Etheredge, said, "He is here when he is required to be here just like every other player on the team" and added that Parcells has expressed no concern about Owens' regimen.
The Cowboys are not concerned about Owens' conditioning. He always has stayed in good shape and his training methods have served him well.
However, Parcells' feelings on the subject are clear. The "voluntary" program requires players to work out four times a week and get in 40 workouts during the off-season.
"To [Parcells], it's about chemistry," a source said. "He wants you here."
