i dont think there is any point of even adding Thrash to that trade. Would he ven make the team? the guy is terrible. a glorified kick returner is all. if im baltimore and get a first for him, id pray to God the trade gets un done and they can get there pick back. who wants a player who clearly doesnt want to be on your team. and when the hell did players get to chose their trades??? :-t

I really don't see T.O. playing in Baltimore next year. You don't just throw temper tantrums like this and then have an excellent career with a team.

no WAY would the eagles give up a frist and a second. Theyw ould rather address wr through the draft at that point. Considering hardly anyone was making a serious run at him when san fran was trading him. All-pro or not, market conditions come to play too. Eagles would probably give a second and a fifth, or say mcmullen and a second. other than that, I don't want owens at that price. OR this year's first. I mean serisouly, the Ravens will have upgraded their pick from second to first for absoloutely nothing really.

The Eagles were given the opportunity to improve on Baltimore's offer of a 2nd round pick and they didn't do it, so it's doubtful they would offer more than a 2nd round pick to get him now.

um, I heard that no, they weren;t given the opportunity to improve it. In fact the front office learned of said trade via espn. It hink that is closer to the truth, obvisouly they would have improved on it, otherwise they wouldn;t be complaining. Considering the way the niners FO has handled this, it seems amazing to me that everyone is taking their word for it.

San Francisco general manager Terry Donahue said Eagles coach Andy Reid offered a fifth-round pick and wide receiver James Thrash for Owens.

"We had no interest in that whatsoever," Donahue said.

Donahue said he countered with a list of other players he'd want for Owens, but the teams couldn't agree on a deal.

"I told Andy we were going to move really quick and that we had a second-round pick and that if he had any further interest to call me back," Donahue said.

The Eagles wouldn't comment Friday. Owens' agent, David Joseph, didn't return phone calls from The Associated Press.

What sounds more realistic? The story above, or the Eagle's story that the 49'ers never gave them the opportunity to improve the Ravens offer? Even if they never gave the Eagles that opportunity, so what? They are under no obligation to do so.

The reason the Eagles are complaining is that they're bitter Owens' agent turned the paperwork in late. If he was a FA, he'd probably be an Eagle.

he is saying that now ...

sounds to me like they had the understandings of a deal, and he turned around and did something else. While legal, defintiely a little borderline if you agreed to do business
