ESPNews reports the Philadelphia Eagles have a deal in place with WR Terrell Owens (Ravens) that would have him join them if the grievance hearing overrules his trade to the Baltimore Ravens and makes him a free agent.
...and from ESPN.com...
ESPN.com wrote:A league source told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio on Monday that the San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles are in discussions through a third party that would allow Terrell Owens to be traded to Philadelphia, while giving the Baltimore Ravens compensation for dropping out of the deal that originally sent the wide receiver from San Francisco to Baltimore.

Rotoworld.com wrote:In the scenario, Baltimore would return Owens to San Francisco for their second round pick and receive a compensatory pick for their trouble. San Francisco would then receive a third-rounder from the team that reaches agreement with Owens. San Francisco would be willing to do this because they are uncertain about how the arbitrator will rule. Confused yet? It should clear up sometime tonight.
...So there you go.
