owens finnally done

its about damn time if you ask me..

Andy Reid and the Eagles knew the risk when they traded for receiver Terrell Owens.

He got them to one Super Bowl, and by pushing $7.5 million of bonus money into the 2006 season — money that T.O. won't ever collect now — they protected their salary cap in the process.

It was that bonus money that Owens was crying about earlier this year. It was why he wanted to renegotiate so badly. The Eagles, primarily vice-president Joe Banner, never budged, never flinched. Owens hired top agent Drew "Rosehips," but he was unable to receive even one proposal from Banner. Both sides dug in their heels, and now Owens is suspended from tonight's game against the Washington Redskins. The Eagles might even dock him his weekly paycheck of $205,882.

The Eagles could suspend him for three more games, the maximum allowed under the collective bargaining agreement. Of course, he could also apologize to quarterback Donovan McNabb for saying the Eagles would "be undefeated if Brett Favre" was Philadelphia's quarterback all season. If Owens apologizes to the quarterback and his teammates for his statements and actions, there's a good chance that Reid will reinstate Owens for next Sunday's game against Dallas.

If Owens doesn't apologize, it's anyone's guess what will happen next. The Eagles could maintain the suspension or even decide to simply release him, believing his great talents are no longer worth the locker-room turmoil he creates. There's the outside chance that Reid believes he can still fix Owens — you know, straighten him out.

If the Eagles give up on him, what team will want Owens? Would anyone claim him and the remaining $1.65 million on his contract?

It seems unlikely that he would be claimed. Many teams don't have that available salary-cap room, while other teams, like the Vikings and 49ers, definitely need a game-breaking receiver but would steer clear of him. Seriously, can you see either one of them signing him?

Most believe that Raiders owner Al Davis would want Owens. But there's no way with the salary cap that Davis could afford Owens, considering all the money he's paying Randy Moss and Jerry Porter.

"We're having a hard enough time getting the ball to Randy, who is the game's best receiver," said one Raiders' insider. "We've been doing our best to get rid of troublemakers. Why would we want him?"

The bottom line is that Owens has cooked his own goose. He's been screaming about being underpaid and under-appreciated, but what team is going to throw a $10 million bonus at him under these circumstances? The answer is no one.
