It is true....I just saw it on NFL Live.

T.O. couldn't let Hines have the spotlight for one second. :D This is a perfect time for Ward to sneak back into camp and save face, and still play the "good guy" role.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens exchanged words with head coach Andy Reid at a team meeting Wednesday and was asked to leave, according to news reports.

Owens then got his belongings and cleared out of Eagles training camp at Lehigh University, according to two television reports.

Earlier Wednesday, he had missed practice for the fifth time in six days because of a left groin injury.

Owens worked out with the team's assistant trainer for about 20 minutes on a separate playing field from his teammates, catching balls from a machine and doing some light running. He did not speak to reporters or acknowledge the fans who chanted his name.

The All-Pro receiver sat out practices last Friday and Saturday. He returned Sunday for both the morning and afternoon sessions, but hasn't practiced since.

Owens is unhappy the Eagles have refused to redo his contract as he enters the second season of a seven-year, $48.97 million deal.

Last season, Owens had 77 receptions for 1,200 yards and a franchise-record 14 touchdowns receptions before severely injuring his ankle late in the season. He missed the final two regular-season games and the first two playoff games before returning for the Super Bowl, in which he had nine receptions for 122 yards.

When asked about Owens leaving camp, his agent Drew Rosenhaus said it was a matter between Owens and Andy Reid. Rosenhaus declined to talk about it further.

Just think about the eagles with no TO and with stinkson out there WR corps is dead, and with Bwest not able to stay healthy and with chris not being healthy also the eagles may just have to hardest fall this year.

I can not get over him wanting to redo his contract again in the SECOND year on a 49 million dollar deal......

The Eagles better think of something FAST to do in WR department!!!!

Terrell Owens Asked To Leave Eagles After Argument
Eagles receiver Terrell Owens has been asked to leave Philadelphia Eagles training camp after a dispute with the team on Wednesday.

According to sources close to the situation, Owens got in an argument with Eagles head coach Andy Reid after Owens didn't sign autographs for fans in a tent on Wednesday.

Owens didn't sign autographs last Sunday at Lehigh, but the team said Owens had been excused from that session.

Owens didn't practice with the team earlier on Wednesday and then didn't attend the public autograph session with fans, according to sources, many of whom were wearing Owens' jersey.

Owens was then asked by coach Andy Reid to discuss the autograph session. After an apparent argument, with Owens again refusing to sign autographs, Reid asked Owens to leave Eagles training camp.

Owens then got his belongings and left Lehigh University.

Saw an article where Andy Reid has lost 40 lbs or more this offseason. Maybe he will suit it up for the Eagles and hual in some passes.

I think the Eagles should just sit him for the year. They can't trade him they would still take an 8mil salary cap hit so just sit him.

By the way that is a great picture Blitz. Too bad we can't get that to ESPN to put on the air.
