PHILADELPHIA -- Terrell Owens hasn't decided whether he will
report to training camp on time because of a contract dispute with
the Eagles, his agent said Wednesday.
"The odds are 50-50," Drew Rosenhaus told The Associated
Press. "We probably won't make any determination until the start
Owens, who helped the Eagles reach the Super Bowl in his first
season in Philadelphia after eight years with San Francisco, fired
longtime agent David Joseph in April, hired Rosenhaus and started
asking for a new contract just one year into a seven-year deal
worth almost $49 million.
The Eagles have said they won't redo the contract.
"Where we stand is there's no change in their position,"
Rosenhaus said. "In my discussions with them, they've maintained
their stance. We're weighing our options."
Rosenhaus also told the AP on Wednesday that Green Bay receiver
Javon Walker, another one of his clients, will be a no-show at
training camp next week unless the Packers agree to give the Pro
Bowl receiver a big pay raise or trade him.
Rosenhaus said it was unfair to compare the two star receivers'
"Every situation is different and you can never correlate the
two scenarios," he said.
Veteran players are scheduled to report to Eagles camp on Aug.
1, and will participate in their first practice in full pads on
Aug. 3 at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa.
Owens set team records with 14 touchdown receptions and seven
100-yard games, and finished with 77 catches for 1,200 yards. He
broke his leg and severely sprained his right ankle in Week 15
against Dallas, an injury that sidelined him until the Super Bowl.
Owens defied his doctor's advice by returning to the starting
lineup against New England just 6 1/2 weeks after ankle surgery,
and was Philadelphia's best player on offense. He caught nine
passes for 122 yards in the Eagles' 24-21 loss to the Patriots.
