From Peter King’s column today:

5. The T.O. deal is not as poisonous as most people think. A week doesn’t go by when we don’t talk about him. But if LeCharles Bentley is pulling down $12.5 million this year and the Edge $12.25 million, I’d say Owens may morph into the bargain of all bargains at $10 million. Potentially, of course. I’m counting on him not being an idiot in 2006, which is probably too much to hope for. Now if we can just stitch his lips closed. Remember, too, that the Cowboys essentially signed Owens to three one-year contracts. If he’s a jerk in Year 1, he won’t be back in Year 2.

(Quick T.O. interlude: On a trip to Philadelphia Eagles headquarters recently, I ducked my head into the offensive team meeting room. My tour guide, an Eagles employee, pointed to a chair near the back of the room and said, "There’s where T.O. slept for two years.”)
