Terrell Owens has sent his new teammates in Buffalo a message this offseason: "I'll see you when I see you."
In some circles, there's some hand-wringing over T.O.'s decision to skip the Bills' voluntary workout program. Seems that he'd rather spend March and April on South Beach than in Orchard Park, which seems so shortsighted. Coach Dick Jauron was hopeful two weeks ago that T.O. would use this opportunity to bond with teammates and establish a rapport with quarterback Trent Edwards.
Jauron, a man who always seems to be on the verge of passing a kidney stone, changed his tune during Tuesday's AFC coaches' breakfast and expressed support for T.O.'s alternate workout program. I started to tell him about the wide receiver's live-in personal trainer, Buddy Primm, but Jauron already looked miserable enough.
If the Bills simply thought T.O. would show up at the practice facility out of the goodness of his heart, they're more naive than many of us had imagined. If you think it's important for T.O. to be at the workouts, put it in his contract. That's what Dan Snyder did with defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth and cornerback DeAngelo Hall.
The good news is that T.O. and Edwards have begun a texting relationship. It's a luxury Johnny Unitas and Raymond Berry never had, so they were forced to throw to each other in the offseason.
"We talked shortly after I signed and we exchanged text messages," Owens said when asked about Edwards on Wednesday. "We're looking forward to the upcoming season."
Come back home, T.O. Dallas misses you.
