TO Update

From ESPN news service this morning:

"I'll be there," Owens told the [Philadelphia] Inquirer on Friday. "I mean, the bottom line is that I still believe I deserve a new contract. I still believe I deserve more than what they've given me. But I'm not stupid. I'm not about to miss training camp, get fined every day and give them even more reasons to keep from paying me."

It appears that my earlier wish did not come to fruition. I suspect the true loser in this announcement is Drew Rosenhaus. The super-agent wants to use these players as bargaining chips, of which he has several, including Javon Walker of the Packers [who intends to sit out the whole season]. Terrell is too smart to be so used. I will give him that.
