    Perhaps if he held on to a few more passes and hadn't showboated his whole career, he'd have a job already.:kitten:

    Ummmm, there isn't a perception that he's a trouble maker, it can be banked as fact, that he's a trouble maker.

    It was close to a done deal then he bailed on them to go to Philly. So he basically screwed them over without even signing with them.

    And Lindsey Lohan is concerned about her image as a crack whore. So what's new?

    I remember in an interview with Ray Lewis after TO mocked his dance, he was asked what he thought about TO doing that and Ray responded with something to the affect of 'make sure you watch what you are doing because one day all these people that you are so great are going to turn against you and then what are you going to do?'

    Look at what's happening now TO.

    This right here ^^ = CHECKMATE!!!! End of story. Nothing else to be said for this guy. What goes around comes around and it finally came around. I just hope that ESPN and these other shitty media networks don't hire him for any analyst gigs or special appearances. TO is dying to be a star and to have more attention and fame. I just want him to go away so badly.

    I thought he did well in Buffalo. Played for a crappy team with no real QB, still had about 80 balls caught with about 800 yards right.

    At one point ESPN Mike&Mike in the morning gave him props for how he handled the media after a loss one Sunday when he kept saying "I can only execute the plays they call." The media kept trying to get him to say something and he refused.

    That's not bad. He wants to play for a very low amount of money.

    That is #2 WR stats though. He still had some melt downs on the field last season. THey just didn't show it as much. He was brought over there to be big time WR, not a #2 WR.

    To all NFL teams who could potentially want to sign me:

    Last year proves that I won't be a distraction, because previous years don't matter - only the most recent.

    Last year does not prove that my talent is diminishing because only the most productive years matter - not the most recent.

    Signed,

    Terrell Owens

    (And yeah, I still love me some ME!)

    I can't believe I'm going to borderline defend him, but T.O. never wanted to go to Baltimore - he was traded there by San Fran when they believed they still held his rights after his agent at the time (Not Drew Rosenhaus) screwed up the timing on the notification to exercise a cancellation clause in his contract.

    Rather than take the thing to arbitration or a special master, or wherever they would have had to take it (most likely because they didn't like their chances), the Forty-Niners, Ravens and Eagles agreed to undo the initial trade, and trade him to Philly (where he'd already come to terms on a deal) for some measly amount of compensation back to the 'Niners.

    Yeah, this is all true. The situation with Baltimore wasn't actually his fault. It was his agent's fault at the time.
