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.

I love it.

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.

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.

Just idle curiosity but what's the cap hit for the Eagles if they waive him? Anyone know?

ESPN

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.

That may be the craziest thing I've ever heard if it is true.

I wonder if he was mumbling to himself "I'm not crazy" while doing those crunches? This guy is borderline nutty.

Dude is a prima dona. Nobody is above the NFL, regardless of how talented they are or what they think they are worth.

Glad he's not on my team!

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.

i really don't think the Eagles are going to try to trade him. they will probly try to get another WR, but they won't go jumping into getting rid of T.O. just yet.

Default the real story behind TO leaving practice

After the Hall of Fame Game on Monday night, all the talk on the radio and TV shows is about Ricky and TO was placed on the back burner. I think TO did this to get back in the headlines, where he and his ego like to be.

ESPN just a few minutes ago showed T.O. Working out in his driveway. I'm sure it will be back on in the next 20 minutes or so.

here the video http://nbc10.feedroom.com/iframeset.jsp?ord=914741 from local news

If you really want to drive a narcissist like TO nuts, everyone should ignore him. The media, the fans, and his teammates. Make him personal non grada.

Like that will ever happen... :brickwall

Rumors disolved.
T.O. full speed practice on a seprate feild than team was not permitted at by AR. He was to reast his groin today.
T.O. is banned for one week.
When confronted about the full speed practice, it was not in the presence of other player. Reports say T.O. used an explitive directed toward AR, T.O. denies saying "No, I dont cus that much"

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

Also the circus at T.O. house has started again, as he brought a yoga mat in his front driveway
