You're forgetting an important fact: Terrell Owens is 35 years old. There's no way anyone will sign him to longer than a two-year contract after this season, and if they did it would be filled with incentives and non-guaranteed money.

I think from here on out, T.O. is only going to be getting 1-year offers. Mainly due to his age and his locker room skills.

LOL. I think that's a risk ANY Bills fan would take right now. The team has sucked so badly since the glory days of Jim Kelly that even the mere thought of getting into the playoffs would create such a happy buzz around town that Buffalonians would suddently stop complaining about lake effect snow off of lake erie......

TO skipped voluntary workouts with his new team mates. It's been 24 hours and no one here reported it. All the haters must be sleeping!

It would be one thing if he just skipped voluntary workouts. A lot of players do that. But T.O. made a point of saying he'd be there and then skipped it. Lol. Classic.

Owens is a lot of things, but out of shape isn't one of them.

per rotoworld

Terrell Owens was absent for the start of Buffalo's conditioning program because he's in D.C. to receive an award for raising awareness about Alzheimer's Disease.

T.O., whose grandma has Alzheimer's, will get the Alzheimer's Association's first Young Champions Award on Wednesday. He's being honored along with senator Jay Rockefeller and French president Nicolas Sarkozy. Despite ESPN trying to make a big deal of it, Owens' absence was never a concern.

From Philly.com:

T.O.'S new slate. Jauron said he didn't consult anybody from Terrell Owens' previous NFL stops about how to handle the volatile wide receiver.

"No, I didn't," he said. "I just felt like from this point, we'll write a new chapter. We'll see where it goes, and we'll work like hell to make it work for all of us. We'll work at it."
