Wow. I never would have guessed Buffalo but I guess panic on the part of Jauron and the need to keep up with the rest of the AFC East kind of had a lot to do with it. It is a one year deal for $6.5 million. I think this is a good deal for Buffalo as it is only a one yer deal and hey need a playmaker for Edwards an to take the pressure off Evans and it is a good deal for Owens as he can eave Buffalo after a year and sign elswhere.

At this point, Owens should just go from one 1 year contract to antoher until he reties. But I am glad this is over and was notdrawn out.

If nothing else it makes the Bills relevant if not slightly annoying now.

As a Pats fan it doesn't really make them anymore scary. Maybe they sneak a win from them this year, but Dick Jauron is still steering this ship.

I wonder if this will lead to Chris Berman picking the Bills to win it all again. God I hate him.

Can't it be both?

As far as the contract, I think it works for both teams. For the Bills, it gives them a much needed name to sell tickets and it makes their offense look really good all aorund... if Edwards becomes a good QB. I don't think they're a threat for the Super Bowl, but they could get a playoff spot with that group. As for T.O., I'm sure he doesn't want to stay in Buffalo for more than a year anyway. If he still has it, he put up a good year and if he's smart, he'll shut up for the most part in order to get another contract with a more desireable team. Otherwise, if he wants to act like a dumbass as he did with his other teams, he might as well retire after next year cause he won't get jack from any other team.

And I know, I KNOW, that this makes Week 5 the over/under of T.O.'s first anti-coach tirade. But I actually don't see it happening.

I agree with supersalvadoran. This is a pit stop for Owens. But he's not an idiot. He knows that if he reverts to his old ways, there's no way he ever sees a contract from anyone. Michael Vick will get more interest than him. This is a year-long audition and I think Owens will put up big numbers. Unless, of course, Trent Edwards falls to injury.

And I know he wants to be on his best behavior, but at the end of the day, it's still Terrell Owens. If Trent Edwards goes down and Owens has to try to catch "passes" from J.P. Losman...well...get your popcorn ready.

Incidentally, you might want to find another shamed athlete for this sort of comparison. From what I've seen on ESPN/read online, Vick will possibly (maybe even likely) be playing football in the NFL this upcoming season.

I'm going with Pac Man Jones, then. I mean, he'll probably wind up somewhere, but Vick and Owens have given production to teams. Jones flat out hasn't.

And maybe playing in such a tiny media market will do something to T.O.'s ego. That's one enormous maybe.

Al Davis is still alive, right?

(No, seriously, although I'm not sure it makes a difference; Zombie Al Davis would probably tell the offensive coordinator to go deep once or twice in between trying to eat Tom Cable's brains.)

Vick will probably be back by 2010 at the latest. It's more likely he'll be playing wide receiver and returning kicks than playing QB though, which makes the Raiders even more of an option.

JP's a free agent and won't be back with Buffalo this season. They just signed a backup QB in Ryan Fitzpatrick.

A wise man once said, a talented athlete who's not in jail, no matter how troubled, will find a place in the NFL. And with the newfound popularity of the Wildcat offense and all its off-shoots and derivatives, Vick has as much of a chance as playing in the NFL now as ever. The only thing standing in his way is Roger Goodell and an indefinite suspension (admittedly no small matter).

Honestly, I could care less about Vick. I really hope Goodell tells him to piss off. The same goes for Adam Jones (I will not call him Pac Man).

As far as T.O. goes. I think that the over/under for his first tantrum is 3 weeks and there is no way that he will finish the season out in Buffalo. My guess is that if the Bills are out of the running early, he will be on a contending team by the trade deadline.
