MOORESTOWN, N.J. (AP) -- A contrite Terrell Owens, hoping to overturn his dismissal from the Philadelphia Eagles, on Tuesday apologized to coach Andy Reid, quarterback Donovan McNabb, the team's owner and president, and fans.
``I fight for what I think is right. In doing so, I alienated a lot of my fans and my teammates,'' Owens said, reading a statement outside his house.
His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said Owens was making a public apology in hopes of returning to the Eagles immediately.
A team spokesman said the Eagles had no comment.
Owens on Monday was told by the team not to return this season. The decision resulted from ``a large number of situations that accumulated over a long period of time, during which Terrell had been warned repeatedly about the consequences of his actions,'' Reid said.
