there's no way the eagles would give him $21 m base next year, when he would get $3.5 m on his current contract. I'd like to see him leave though, and if the deal isn't worked out, I wouldn't be surprised if he ended up on a different team (maybe dallas or KC??), That would really suck for the eagles though.

OK, so he's good, and helped take the team to the next level...but one year and now you want more? I hate player salaries. :-P

Sad thing is he's probably right in doing it - I very seriously doubt the Eagles will want to pay the back-end of that contract...that's why we have so many restructured deals and trades to teams with more room.

He ain't going anywhere, he has no leverage, let him sit out. The Eagles hold all the cards.

Drew Rosenhaus is one busy guy.

The only way TO would get more money for one year would be... well if Andy Reid suddenly didn't call the shots, that's about when. I would not be opposed to the Eagles possibly working some incentives into his contract, bonuses for 15+ TDs in a season, etc, but not changing an already lucrative deal.

Oh, and I'm beginning to see throughout the league that Rosenhaus is trying to compete with the Postons in arrogance and extravagance. Yeah agents should get their players big bucks, but it seems like these guys are just trying to get numbers that will attract new players, knowing full well the team will never pay all that money to their client. Like the Postons, I think he might have some clients going on record "My agent made that demand, I didn't," and eventually getting rid of him.

couple of things --

I don't think TO is THAT out of line for wanting a little more.

The contract the Eagles have is very, very favorable to them as it stands. And the other thing is, they have a hell of a lot of leeway shoudl they want to cut him if need be.

Given that he risked his health and busted his hump to get back for the Super Bowl, I don't think he is out of line for wanting a little more -- he upheld his end of the bargain.

IF he wants to play hardball, so be it. The Eagles hold all the cards. He would look so foolish in public for doing anything to the team and beloved QB who fought for him and stuck up for him. Screw him if he wants to play real hardball. I have a feeling Reid will tell his new agent what they would tell anyone. Pound sand.

I think playing in the Super Bowl was more for TO than for the team.What player wants to sit out of the big game when you get so few chances to get there?The best thing for the team(at the time)would have been to listen to the doctors and get healthy.Turns out he didn't get hurt,but if he had it would hurt the Eagles much more than it would him.

well, I'm not so sure I agree with that -- considering he had a monster game.

If he had gotten hurt, the eagles could have just cut him, they have a lot of escape clauses and protection in that contract.

Of course it wasn't selfless to play.

That said, he was brought here to play in that game. It turns out the eagles made it without Owens. But all things considered he went above and beyond the call of duty and helped his team in the big game, with a prime time performance.

Diffcult to say what the "best" thing was, but it is safe to say he didn't hurt. And, he wasn't that protected financially if he were to end his career playing on that leg.
