In 2004, the San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles reached an agreement that sent Terrell Owens to play with the Eagles. In his first season, Owens played in 14 games, caught 1,200 yards and 14 touchdowns. The next season, he only played in seven, yet still able to record over 700 yards and six touchdowns.
Frustrated with the team, his contract and his quarterback, Owens took his anger out on everyone but himself. The drama was so distracting that the Eagles soon traded Owens away–to their division rival, the Dallas Cowboys. Playing 47 games as a part of "America's Team," Owens caught nearly 3,600 yards and 38 touchdowns.
Once again, Owens' problems with his teammates and team management resulted in him being with another team the next season. This time, the Buffalo Bills, where he failed to reach 1,000 receiving yards for only the fifth time in his career.
Donovan McNabb has never had much trouble with his team as much as Owen has. McNabb was the second overall pick of the 1999 draft to the Eagles, where he is still a part of today.
The thing is, we won't know if he'll be a part of the Eagles come tomorrow.
Earlier this month, it was reported that the Raiders were possibly interested in signing one of the top receivers of the previous decade, none other than Terrell Owens.
Call me crazy, but personally, I would love to see McNabb and Owens playing in the silver and black together.
Yes, Owens is a "quarterback killer" and has had problems with McNabb in the past. But if last season shows anything, it's that Owens knows that his career is near the end and if he wants to win, he's going to need to shut his mouth and play football.
Together, McNabb and Owens were terrific, easily becoming one of the most feared quarterback to receiver tandems in the game. There's no reason why they cannot become that again if they were both to join the Oakland Raiders.
In Oakland, Owens knows that he will be the main receiver. McNabb most likely would be the starting quarterback.
Sure, Al Davis loves JaMarcus Russell too much to have him ride the pine. What he needs to realize is that Russell needs to learn under a good quarterback, much like Tony Romo and Tom Brady learning under Drew Bledsoe.
This may just be my farfetched fantasy, but it could definitely happen, especially when your team's owner is Al Davis!
