after exchanging words with Andy Reid per ESPN News ticker.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens exchanged words with head coach Andy Reid at a team meeting Wednesday and was asked to leave, according to news reports.

Owens then got his belongings and cleared out of Eagles training camp at Lehigh University, according to two television reports. He was expected to return to his home in Atlanta, ESPN's Sal Paolantonio reports.

Earlier Wednesday, he had missed practice for the fifth time in six days because of a left groin injury.

Owens worked out with the team's assistant trainer for about 20 minutes on a separate playing field from his teammates, catching balls from a machine and doing some light running. He did not speak to reporters or acknowledge the fans who chanted his name.


The All-Pro receiver sat out practices last Friday and Saturday. He returned Sunday for both the morning and afternoon sessions, but hasn't practiced since.

Owens is unhappy the Eagles have refused to redo his contract as he enters the second season of a seven-year, $48.97 million deal.

Last season, Owens had 77 receptions for 1,200 yards and a franchise-record 14 touchdowns receptions before severely injuring his ankle late in the season. He missed the final two regular-season games and the first two playoff games before returning for the Super Bowl, in which he had nine receptions for 122 yards.

When asked about Owens leaving camp, his agent Drew Rosenhaus said it was a matter between Owens and Andy Reid. Rosenhaus declined to talk about it further.

Eagle fans have turned on T.O. this time more than all the other shananigans he has pulled. I really do not see this with a happy ending for the T.O.-Eagle relationship.

Some reports say he left camp on his own, some say he was kicked out for a week.

I still can't understand why anyone would want this guy on their team. His talent is limitless, but so is his potential to distract an entire team with his immaturity and stupidity.

I hope he sits out the season. I really do.

FOXSports.com has learned that this latest incident was triggered when Owens refused to participate in a mandatory autograph session for wide receivers. After Owens was told by head coach Andy Reid that today was his turn to sign autographs, the wideout ignored the head coach and simply brushed past him. http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/3879562

This didnt even have anything to do with the game...

T.O. rumors

The argument between T.O. and Andy Reid were over him not showing up at scheduled autograph signing the last two days.

T.O. may have been confronted infront of other teammates and felt that Andy should have handled the matter privately.

Today T.O. groin was fine at practice, but practiced on a seprate feild than the rest of the team.

And it is still unsure whether he was actually kicked out, or simply left being upset.


"610WIP Sports Radio in Philadelphia reports Philadelphia Eagles WR Terrell Owens will not be traded despite him walking away from the team during camp Wednesday, Aug. 10. Owens also will not be fined by the team for leaving early Wednesday, but the team will start fining him $6,000 per day starting Thursday, Aug. 11, should his absence continue. Owens would lose approximately $200,000 per game, should he not be on good terms with the team during the regular season. "

Still no official report from Philadelphia Eagles, but I will update you as I receive information.

ESPN (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2130735)

The following is a blurb from the article:

If the truth needs to be told, that's what I'll do," Owens told the Inquirer.

"I mean, if he [Reid] wants to be a man about it and really have me go on the air and tell people what happened, then I can.

"But it was a difference of opinion. I think the report is now that I was blowing my fans off. That's not the case. My fans have been great. They have been great.

"When I was out there on the field, I was attending to my business. They are telling me to go out there and perform and go out there and practice.

"I'm not going into further detail about the altercation," Owens said to the newspaper.

Owens referred further questions to his publicist.

The Inquirer also said on sports talk radio station WIP, former NFL player Gary Cobb said he had talked to an Eagles player today who said the dispute started over Owens' morning workout.

According to Cobb, the player told him that Owens was supposed to be off today in order to rest his strained groin muscle and Reid was upset to see him running pass routes at full speed. When Reid suggested that if Owens felt good enough to run routes all out, he should be good enough to attend practice, and the player told Cobb that the argument escalated from there.

His signing bonus was in the $8 mil neighborhood on a 7 year deal so releasing him would create 6/7th's of the $8 mil as dead money or $6.9 mil. Fact is some team would trade for him.

T. O. is a coaches nightmare. He has excellent talent, you would not ever want to lose him, and you know another team will pick him up at the drop of a dime. So Philly is going to do what they are doing now. Put up with his crap and hope he grows up. I have to give it to the Vikings though, they shocked me when they let Moss go. Andy Reid :brickwall

I really sincerely believe Owens has mental issues. He has an overwhelming desire to be in the spotlight and doesn't seem to be happy unless he is.

I heard the guys on 610 say the other day that McNabb wasn't even speaking to him.

The Eagles are going to implode unless they get rid of him. Not that that is a bad thing.

The Eagles right now are more under the cap then any other team. The Eagles have said that TO will play out his contract or sit for the year if need be. The Eagles will be fine! :cool:

Eagles | City Councilman Wants Rosenhaus Investigated
Tue, 16 Aug 2005 13:00:45 -0700

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports a Philadelphia city councilman has sent a letter to the City's Department of Licensing and Inspections requesting an investigation into the business license and tax status of sports agent Drew Rosenhaus, who represents Philadelphia Eagles WR Terrell Owens. Frank DiCicco stated in his letter that "Drew Rosenhaus has earned thousands of dollars on the backs of our beloved Eagles. However, to my knowledge, the City has not earned a penny on the back of Mr. Rosenhaus." According to city code, any individual doing business within the City of Philadelphia must obtain a business privilege license and pay business privilege taxes. Any individual found to have not obtained a license is subject to fines and up to 90 days imprisonment, as well as the payment of all taxes and penalties.

Reid's meeting with T.O. 'Good'
http://www.philadelphiaeagles.com/homeNewsDetail.jsp?id=33107

Looks like all hell in T.O. situation has broken...yet

I think anyone that things the eagles are the wrong person in this situation is uninformed about what the problem is. I had a friend try to tell me yesterday that "It's not a problem with the contract, but the eagles did not pay him money that they said they would pay him in the contract". That was the dumbest thing I've heard. That would be a court case, not a hold out.

I've also seen that our good Friend 'the people champ' might not make KC...CAME BACK TO PHILLY!

I hope this whole ordeal is straightened out because its just a distraction for the Eagle newbies and vets during training camp/preseason and everyone is sick of it.
i give most of the blame to the media for making a mountain out of this whole deal covering TO's every move and quoting every word since he hit camp. They need to just chill out and get pure football coverage i don't give isht about transactions esp. since the players are paid out the azz anyway.

OK, so he's not speaking. But that doesn't stop Philadelphia's Terrell Owens from making a statement.

On the first play of his first game back with the Eagles, the controversial wide receiver caught a 64-yard touchdown pass. On the second, he hauled down a 31-yarder. And on the third he just missed a 28-yard score when he was ruled out of bounds.

When the half was over, Owens had a game-high five catches for 131 yards and the Eagles had a 27-3 lead. I think we just discovered what impact Owens' antics will have on his ballclub. http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/story/8775849

He may not stop talking (or start for that matter) but he can still play

Great athletes with bad attitudes make me want to renounce all sports. Terrell Owens is probably the worst I've ever seen, unless you count Mike Tyson who was just an ignorant thug. Owens is a spoiled brat. You have to remember that these athletes did NOTHING to earn their size, speed, throwing arms, catching ability, whatever. They were just born lucky--and, in many cases, lucky that their particular sport is famous. Take football for example. An individual size limit at every position for some little-man's league could render a competitive juggarnaut of entertainment. Speed, skills, it would all be there, but there'd be no 300+ lb. linemen or 6'4" receivers. Do you see what I'm saying? You could do the same thing with basketball and a 9' goal, eliminating the need or the allowance for 8' basketball players. My point is this: Terrell Owens is the best-- So freaking what???!!? It's a game. He's a grown man playing a kid's game and being really good at it does not make him freaking God! That's what the moron needs to get in his thick skull. But, then again, he doesn't have to, because he's got an entire city of Brotherly *****s to root for him on every play, when they should be kicking his sorry butt out of town. I don't know how Houston would react. I know I would stop watching football. (I can't root for the Cowgirls, regardless.)

Can't figure this guy out for anything! What's going on inside that head of his?!
Does he need a time-out, a straight jacket or a hug?

turn your tv off for a few years.
last night was an amazing performance. it doesnt forgive him for the way he has treated the coach and team. but all those people saying "im glad he's not on my team", it makes you think twice doesnt it? and i think i probly posted some anti t.o. stuff on this board, so umm, please don't look at any of it.
but just to defend my post, all im trying to say is i think the damage he does to the team is by far out weighed by his play.

See, this is why T.O. never flinced. He knew that if he showed up and had one good game the fans would cheer for him again and you would see his jersey on fans backs at the game.

no no no, im not going out singing the T.O. song and wearing his jersey. I'm just saying that his play on the feild helps the team more than his other actions hurt the team. if there is anyone out there who thinks he hurts the team more than helps is crazy. but I still think he's an ***. my 81 jersey is still hanging up in a dark closet. The only thing that would make me the T.O. fan that i was before he caused trouble with reid and such is if he were to appologize, but :pigfly:

i stand behind that. we do not need T.O.. the eagles have some other good wr and rb, especially some good rookies. the eagles without t.o. got to the superbowl last year, and made the nfc conf 4 straight years before t.o.
as for supporting him, i can't say i will go around in him jersey, but if he scores a touchdown im sure i will cheer that the eagles put up 6, but you know it does take more than one man to get a touchdown or any yardage. McNabb is the one leading the team, any catch that leads to a touchdown started in his hands. T.O. is a nice bonus, but not a necessity.

the cowboys might even be able to win a game if they had a QB like McNabb!

Heres a question for Texan fans. If you could have an asset like owens (the good and the bad) would you want him on your team?

No. I think the Texans are trying to show that they have class as an organization, and Owens would just ruin that.
