The Philadelphia Eagles (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/phi/) have given agent Drew Rosenhaus permission to seek a trade for Terrell Owens (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/3664/), though it's unlikely a team would give up players or draft picks for the star receiver.

Owens' tumultuous time in Philadelphia ended in November when the Eagles suspended him four games for conduct detrimental to the team and deactivated him the last five games of the season.

A series of infractions, including repeated criticism of quarterback Donovan McNabb and a verbal shot at the organization, led to Owens' banishment.

Rosenhaus has worked out trades for other client's in the past, including Washington running back Clinton Portis (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/5937/). However, it'll be difficult to do so with Owens, considering other teams know the Eagles are forced to cut him by March 1. Owens is due a $2.5 million signing bonus and $5 million roster bonus by that date if the Eagles don't let him go before.

Owens has five seasons remaining on the seven-year, $48.97 million contract he signed in March 2004. If a team trades for Owens, it would assume the contract he negotiated with the Eagles or redo the deal.

Don't know why anyone would trade for him except to try and beat out other potential suitors - Philly is going to cut him anyway.

Correct, no one will trade for Owens. You know what this is? This is a classic case of 3rd grade insults...The Eagles want to walk away the tough guys by making Rosenhaus look like an idiot for not being able to get a trade done. Basically "if you're so good Drew, then go find a trade", knowing of course that he wont be able to, just to be a bunch of babies and make him look worse than he already does....personally, i like the idea :)
