Default Owens Wants To Wear "81" For Eagles

Owens Wants To Play For Eagles
San Francisco 49ers Receiver Sent To Baltimore
Even though he was traded to Baltimore, Terrell Owens still hopes to catch passes from Donovan McNabb in Philadelphia next season.

One day after the San Francisco 49ers sent the four-time Pro Bowl receiver to the Ravens, Owens said he's not happy with the deal and plans to file a grievance.

"This is about me getting a fair shot at a team that I want to go to. Baltimore is definitely one of my choices, but Philly was my 'A' choice, my priority on my list," Owens said in an interview on ESPN late Friday night. "I talked to my agent earlier and we're going to file a grievance for the situation and we're going to hope for the best possible situation."

Desperate for a No. 1 receiver, the Eagles reportedly agreed to a contract with Owens that included a signing bonus believed to be worth about $10 million. But the volatile receiver was traded to the Ravens for a second-round pick Thursday before Philadelphia could work out a trade with the 49ers.

San Francisco general manager Terry Donahue said Eagles coach Andy Reid offered a fifth-round pick and wide receiver James Thrash for Owens.

"We had no interest in that whatsoever," Donahue said.

Donahue said he countered with a list of other players he'd want for Owens, but the teams couldn't agree on a deal.

"I told Andy we were going to move really quick and that we had a second-round pick and that if he had any further interest to call me back," Donahue said.

The Eagles wouldn't comment Friday. Owens' agent, David Joseph, didn't return phone calls from The Associated Press.

Owens failed to become a free agent this week when he missed a deadline last month to void the final three seasons of his contract. Joseph already filed a grievance with the NFL Management Council through the players' union in an effort to resolve that matter.

"We're not idiots," Owens said. "This is something we've been waiting on. The 49ers have known that I was more than possibly going to void my contract. There's been a lot of backstabbing going on the last couple of years."

Owens caught 80 passes for 1,102 yards and nine touchdowns last season -- his lowest totals since 1999. He has been selected to the last four Pro Bowls while feuding with teammates, coaches, the 49ers' front office and the media.

Owens is due to make $17.7 million in base salary over the next three seasons, including $5.3 million next year -- a relative bargain for one of the NFL's best receivers.

The Eagles had perhaps the league's worst starting receivers, Thrash and Todd Pinkston. The duo combined for just 85 catches and three TDs last season. In Philadelphia's 14-3 loss to Carolina in the NFC championship game, Thrash had one catch and Pinkston had none.

The Eagles, who have lost the conference title game the last three years, upgraded their defense by signing three-time Pro Bowl defensive end Jevon Kearse to a $66 million, eight-year deal. But they still need a top target for McNabb, who has openly campaigned for the team to acquire Owens.

Owens spent all eight of his NFL seasons with the 49ers, who drafted him in the third round in 1996.

He and Indianapolis' Marvin Harrison are the only receivers with more than 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns over the past four seasons.

Owens also is known for a series of on-field celebrations and off-field conflicts.

Two years ago, he pulled out a pen and signed a ball after scoring a touchdown in Seattle. He wasn't fined for the move but was severely chastised by commissioner Paul Tagliabue, who said he would be disciplined for future stunts.

Owens also precipitated a melee during a game by dancing on the Dallas Cowboys' star at midfield after scoring.

He threw a sideline tantrum during a game against Cleveland last season, and lost it again the following week against Minnesota, chewing out offensive coordinator Greg Knapp after the 49ers were stopped on a fourth-and-1 running play.

----------

Well this is very interesting, Owens is on a team her doesn't even want to play for. I Smell a holdout causing Ravens to to take a 6.5 mill cap hit a year for two years if they dont trade him away to Philly.

Read the article it's interesting guys........

Is this a joke?

My god I knew it was bad but not this bad.

The Eagles need T.O, they have no weapons other than McNabb.

Yeah I like Westbrook, he was on one of my fantasy teams. Too bad he got hurt for the playoffs though because I seriously thought he was their best playmaker behind McNabb.

But other than him I don't see anyone else as a real threat as far as offense goes.

I wonder if they'll end up trading him... Owens is the biggest cry baby that I have ever seen though... he seems like he will whine wherever he ends up...

Well if Owens wasn't so fucking stupid to being with, he wouldn't have this problem.

I defenitly wouldn't want to see him in Philly though for obvious reasons.

Yeah, baltimore might trade him to Philly for McNabb. Nobody else on their team is worth it. They couldn't trade anything to SF for him either.

TO will either play for the ravens, or sit out the season.

Do you think we're going to give up McNabb for Owens?

I don't think so. Pinkston hasn't done anything at all.

No I don't, which is why I don't think anybody else on philly's roster is worth enough for Owens. McNabb is. But what, Pinkston? Westbrook? Thrash? Those guys are benchwarmers in Owens league. None of them is worth anywhere near as much as Owens, and if they were, if Philly could have worked out a deal with sf, then there'd be a case for it. But right now, SF wouldn't even trade Owens for Thrash and a pick. So there you have it. Like I said, baltimore might trade him to Philly for McNabb. Nobody else on their team is worth it.
