    Owens/Philly Deal

    Owens had negotiated the deal with Philly as a FA, however his agent, David Joseph, forgot to file the paperwork that would void his remaining contract years with SF. The NFLPA filed a grievance on Owen's behalf but before it could go to arbitration, SF, Philly and Baltimore made a three way settlement that saw Brandon Whiting and a 5th round pick go to SF from Philly in return for the rights to Owens, and Baltimore was given back their second-round pick they traded to SF.

    So technically, Owens was not a FA. However, Philly did negotiate with him on the mistaken assumption his agent would file the paperwork on time, and made the deal with him as if he was a FA at the time.

    I hope this clears up any confusion in regards to Owens FA status prior to signing with Philly.

    It was cleared up before I posted the link. Thanks though.


    Judging ones character has NOTHING to do with disagreeing/agreeing on something neither has any control over.

    Please, no more namecalling. It's not nice. You're better than that.


    Four years in the league is veteran. He played on a Super Bowl team. His talent level? That I question. Haven't seen anything to be excited over with that area. I have heard from his previous teams players/coaches and ours that he gives good leadership in the secondary. If that is wrong, so be it.

    I believe there is a fine line between having someone who is a leader on your team and someone who can be a leader on your team while having the talent to help out on the field.

    5 - 8 years is the ballpark I would presume is best for that. Older than that their play has probably begun to decline and if not will in the coming years. Unless its a special player like Barry Sanders, etc...

    Why in the hell is there a 4 page thread about Tony Palmer?

    Oh, that's right. Because the thread hasn't been about Tony Palmer for 3 pages.
