The Philadelphia Eagles (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/teams/eagles) will not renegotiate the contract of star wide receiver Terrell Owens (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/players/3664), The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Wednesday.

Owens fired longtime agent David Joseph in April, hired Drew Rosenhaus and started asking for a renegotiation just one year into a seven-year deal worth almost $49 million.

The Eagles have intimated they wouldn't redo the contract, and owner Lurie told the newspaper, "It's not even an issue."

Wow. I can't say I don't blame them, but I'm somewhat surprised. If this TO situation gets more serious, he could very well end up being traded... AGAIN. :eek:

I think T.O. has a point in the fact that nfl contracts favor the owners.....but the fact that it is T.O. trying to get the deal redone......if it was another player i think the reaction might be different

I like the way that the Eagles are handeling this situation. I hope that loud mouth TO does sits out this year.
