According to Bob Brookover at the Philadelphia Inquirer, Terrell Owens owes the Eagles about three quarters of million dollars.
A league source said today that an arbitrator ruled in the Eagles’ favor Friday on a grievance that was filed by the NFL players’ union on Owens’ behalf more than two years ago. The union had disputed the Eagles’ move to recover $1.725 million of the $2.3 million signing bonus the team paid the wide receiver when it signed him to a seven-year, $49 million deal in 2004.
The entire saga dates from 2005, when a disgruntled Owens was suspended seven games into the season by coach Andy Reid for “behavior that was disruptive to the team.” The Eagles suspended Owens for four games without pay, which cost him $764,704, and later informed him that he should not return for the final five games.
Chalk one up for city of Brotherly Love.
