BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Terrell Owens reported to training camp Monday, ending months of speculation about whether the disgruntled All-Pro receiver would hold out because of a contract dispute with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Owens refused to speak to reporters.
The disgruntled star was hoping to meet with coach Andy Reid and team president Joe Banner before joining his teammates, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.
The dispute has dominated headlines in Philadelphia since the Eagles lost to New England 24-21 in the Super Bowl almost six months ago.
Owens skipped minicamps and, along with agent Drew Rosenhaus, was very vocal about wanting a new contract one season into the seven-year, $48.97 million deal he signed after coming to Philadelphia in March 2004.
The Eagles say they won’t renegotiate the contract.
Owens was a big part of Philadelphia’s offense last season, setting team records with 14 touchdown receptions and seven 100-yard games.
Philadelphia started 13-1, winning nine of the first dozen games by double-digit margins, including five wins by at least 21 points.
Owens, however, broke his leg and severely sprained his right ankle in week 15 against Dallas, an injury that sidelined him until the Super Bowl. He defied doctors’ advice and returned for the title game, catching nine passes for 122 yards.
