    Reid: Owens Won't Return to Eagles
    Monday, November 07, 2005

    PHILADELPHIA — Terrell Owens can take his touchdowns and dance somewhere else.

    The tempestuous star receiver won't return to the Philadelphia Eagles this season — or probably ever — "a result of a large number of situations that accumulated over a long period of time," coach Andy Reid said Monday.

    Owens was suspended for Sunday night's 17-10 loss at Washington, and will remain suspended for three more games without pay. After that, the Eagles plan to deactivate him for the rest of the season.

    Reid said the outspoken player "had been warned repeatedly about the consequences of his actions."

    "We gave Terrell every opportunity to avoid this outcome," he said.

    Owens will either be traded or released after the season. He is due to receive a $5 million roster bonus in March 2006, so the Eagles will decide his fate before then.

    -Reid added that he is working with Vice President of Player Personnel Tom Heckert on potentially signing another wide receiver.

    Owens had 47 receptions for 763 yards and six touchdown receptions this season. Greg Lewis will take over as the No. 1 receiver and Reggie Brown will be the other starting wide receiver.-

    Maybe the Cowboys should take him. After all they did trade for Me-shawn Johnson and he hasn't caused them any problems (could be since Bill Parcells don't take no stuff from anyone).

    This isn't all that dissimilar from Ugeth Urbina's situation with the Detroit Tigers.

    Ironically, Urbina now plays in Philadelphia.
