    Oh... well, never mind then. :heh:

    But if they were to pull that off - that'd be an amazing duo.

    I think they'd be at eacher others throats by the end of the season...too much ego to be #2, no matter what they say now.

    As long as they throw 90% of the time, there will be no problems. :)

    This should also mean that RWilliams won't be playing with that team. Did they get any RB in the draft?

    With both Owens AND Moss on that team Jordan can look forward to about a 60 carries this season if they're going to be keep the two recievers happy. I think they'd be crazy to try and get Owens from Phily. The Raiders have much bigger needs than WR.

    What a disaster of an idea this is. Do you REALLY think either of those guys could handle being second fiddle to the other one? 'Cause I sure don't...

    That's a big joke waiting to happen. Like a train wreck, everyone would be watching.

    I just can't see this one happening. Sounds like the media is ready for some football too.

    They were talking about this on Cold Pizza this morning and there is no way I can see this happening. There wouldn't be enough room on the field for those 2 egos...

    Owens' Days as Bird Numbered?
    PHILADELPHIA-June 30, 2005 — With all the contract squabbles continuing, are the Eagles about to give T.O. the heave-ho?


    There are reports a trade is in the works with the Oakland Raiders. Owens would go to Oakland for wide receiver Jerry Porter.

    T.O. may be trade bait because he wants the Eagles to give him more money.

    If he goes to Oakland, the Raiders would have two of the best wide receivers in the NFL: Terrell Owens, and Randy Moss.

    Yesterday, Moss told reporters he could co-exist with T.O. as long as he got the number of passes he deserves.

    Interesting. Is there a stadium in the NFL big enough to house these two together? Wait until they squabble, will be good TV viewing. :heh:

    All I can speculate about this is....well.... it's an interesting development. I have heard Al trades in mysterious ways. Guess time will give us our answer.

    If this happens then who's next?
    Kyle Turley
    Ricky Williams
    Ryan Leaf (he'd beat up all the reoprters)
    Ray Carruth

    I'm pretty sure that the Raiders would love attitude on their team since their supposed to be the Badboys of the NFL so who knows BBTF you could be right!!!! A good fair trade would be Porter and Jorden for Owens but maybe the Eagles just want to dump some cap on the Raiders and ensure even more success for the team.

    As of March, Oakland had less than 4M in cap space. Porter just signed for 5 years, 6M SB 10M guaranteed. All of this paid by Oakland if Porter is traded.
    Owens cap hit for Philly is 1.8M SB. He is due to make 3.5 M under his contract with the Eagles if he plays for them this season. He has said he will nor play under this contract, so if he is traded, Philly saves the 3.5M and Oakland will have to sign him to some kind of contract. Does anyone think he will take less than what Porter signed for?
    If Philly can pull this off, they are the best front office in history. Porter is 27 on July 14. Owens is 31. Porter is just coming into his own as a receiver and has a great upside. Owens is one of the top receivers in the game today, but has major injuries the last three seasons. Owens will never play in Philly after this season. He is due over 5M in SB in 2006, but the Eagles will let him go before they pay it. That is what the fight is all about.
    I think Porter is due only 1M a year for the next three years under his just signed contract. The roster money become Philly's problem in 2006, but his major upfront money comes from Oakland.
    Logic says no way this happens. But we are taking Al Davis, so you never know. Al might have a deal with MTV. Real World-- the NFL. A house with Owens, Moss, Sapp, Woodson, Hawathorne, Collins, and Jankowski. Would be interesting to watch.
