Terrell Owens Has Suspension Upheld - Will Not Play this Year


By hagrin - Posted on 04 August 2006

In a bit of a surprise (especially after the public sentiment the last few days), the arbitrator in the Terrell Owens case has upheld the 4 game suspension of T.O. and their right to deactivate him after the suspension is over. Therefore, T.O. will not be playing again this year.

Bet you he's super happy with his agent now ...

However, one school of thought is that T.O. will win in the long run with this decision. At the end of the year, the Easgles are going to cut T.O. making him an unrestricted free agent who doesn't have to clear waivers, no team owes him money, etc. Therefore, he will get exactly what he wants - he will get paid for the rest of the year and get (most likely) a new contract from a new team next year.
