RE: Owens

The guy is a loud-mouthed, self-centered whiner. He is also one of the top-3/5 WRs in the game today. He can actually back-up that ego with his play. Truth is, if he didn't have the character issues, he would never hit the market because no team in their right mind would ever let a talent like that go. In a backhanded way, you should be thankful for that ego because it is the only thing that is giving you a chance to get him. IMO, the only other WRs of his caliber are Ward, Moss and Harrison. Those guys are not going anywhere (well, Harrison might depending on how Indy's cap-hell sorts out, but that is a long shot at best).

Give the Eagles Owens and an impact MLB and they are Super-Bowl bound. Assuming of course they don't open up any other holes by letting FAs walk this summer (read: Vincent).
