Owens is latest Cowboy signed to long-term extension

Put Terrell Owens on the list of big-name players locked up with long-term contract extensions by the Dallas Cowboys.

Owens and the Cowboys have agreed to terms on a three-year, $27 million extension, reports NFL Network's Adam Schefter.

The extension keeps Owens in Dallas through the 2011 season. The deal includes a $12.9 million signing bonus and a $100,000 base salary guarantee. Owens is slated to make $19.5 million over the next two years, $27 million over the next three years and $34 million over the four years he now has left on his contract.

Owens, 34, was set to enter this season in the final year of a three-year, $25 million contract he signed with Dallas in March of 2005. Owens has led the Cowboys in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns in each of his two seasons in Dallas, while also leading the NFL with 28 touchdown receptions during that span.

The extension for Owens is the latest in a series of long-term deals reached with key starters. The Cowboys spent roughly $95 million on one day, signing running back Marion Barber to a seven-year, $45 million deal and cornerback Terrence Newman to a six-year, $50.2 million deal on May 21.

The Cowboys also signed left tackle Flozell Adams to a six-year, $43.8 million in April, while quarterback Tony Romo signed a six-year, $67.5 million deal last season.
