    ...from a guy who works in and has contacts in the NFL. This makes a lot of sense with how quiet things have been and the recent reports by Mort and Schefter saying this T.O. situation could take a while.
    ****************************************************************************

    Some people never learn. This is what I've been able to dig up.

    The Cowboys offered a trade to the Eagles and had a deal in place with T.O. The Eagles declined the trade.

    Dallas then figured that same deal would be in place if he was released but now T.O. and Rosenhaus want more money. The David Givens deal was the one that really triggered it.T.O. now believes he can get more money on the open market than he orgininally thought.

    Here's the problem: The Chiefs are only willing to offer him a one-year deal. The Dolphins are officially out. The Broncos have been backtracking ever since Elway spoke out publicly against T.O. coming there.

    Now, Dallas is cooling on him as well. Parcells doesn't want to deal with this drama and now the team is turning their attention back to re-signing Keyshawn or possibliy Eric Moulds if he's released.

    This ****ing guy is crazy. Jones may change his mind and give T.O. the money he wants but as of right now, no one is in the T.O. race because his contract demands went up.

    I guess some people will never change.

    TO needs an attitude adjustment in the worst way. It's coming soon!

    So basically you're "insider" told you that Dallas might sign him, but they also might not sign him.

    GREAT!

    We need for all teams to refuse, then he can come here under a heavy incentive program.

    Why am I not surprised by this attitude from TO.

    It is just really sad that such talent should be wasted on such a total knucklehead.

    Doesn't look like an attitude to me. It looks like a guy who's trying to make as much money as he can, like anyone would.;)

    Seriously one of my sources told me to look out for Miami as a possible place for T.O. to land.

    can't blame him with some insane ideals that Randle-El and Givens got, knowing that i was a billion times better than them I would also hold out for more $$$

    I don't think any team is both willing and able to offer him the amount that we can. In the end, I do believe he is going to have no choice but to sign with us. Unless he wants to spend another season sitting on his *** and not drawing a paycheck.

    If that's the current situation,(which makes total sense), what else is he going to say? He's not trying to predict it or call it before anyone else, he's just saying what he's hearing from the people he knows.

    If you have a problem with that, feel free to put me on "Ignore". I promise it won't hurt my feelings one bit. :)

    If he would have handled the situation better last year, maybe he could make more money, but it was obvious when it was going on that he wouldn't have as many suitors come this off-season purely due to his attitude that he had.

    In the end, if he would have played his contract out, he would have made more money in his NFL life.

    One thing I have a problem with on the info is that its been reported that the eagles didn't have any offers for TO. (I'm not calling you out CA, I know your a solid guy)

    Basically, this is my take on the current T.O. situation.

    Today I'd been thinking about what could be going on and the scenario my source laid out is exactly what I thought might be going on. In fact, I even thought about the fact that dragging it out could turn Parcells off.

    I'm beginning to believe even Rosenhaus can't talk sense to T.O.

    I guess the real question is whether T.O. is willing to sit out rather than take something below what his over-inflated ego thinks he's worth? I just don't see anyone giving him what he thinks he's worth.


    He's either an idiot or genuinely psychotic if he can't see that he must rehabilitate himself for at LEAST a year before he can command top, guaranteed dollars.

    I'm not too worried about Key commanding a lot of money on the open market because he doesn't have the best track record either.

    Moulds is a guy that isn't a bad option, if he's not over the hill, which he could be. I followed him a lot in college at MSU and he's always been an explosive receiver. Of course, he's no choir boy either.

    I started to try to explain it to you but if it is not obvious to you why he is a knucklehead then it never will be. So I will save myself the time and effort of attempting to explain this simple ethics concept. That is the problem with ethics; the concepts are truly simple but they are difficult to explain without going into a lengthy dissertation.

    I agree. I am sure he would want more money, seeing the contracts that Randle El, Givens, and Lloyd just signed. He believes that he is better than all of them, and he is right. But if he realizes that teams are not going to give him the money he wants, he will go to the highest bidder, which is the Dallas Cowboys at the moment.
