Old grudges never die.
In 2005, Terrell Owens engaged in one of the most public holdouts in NFL history.
The Philadelphia Eagles’ All-Pro wide receiver wanted a new deal following a monster season and a Super Bowl appearance.
When he didn’t get it, he performed his own shirtless workouts in his driveway instead of with his teammates and infamously invited media to make it a public spectacle.
Owens eventually reported without a new contract, but was ultimately suspended by the Eagles for the last four games of the season as his feud with teammates and repeated jabs at quarterback Donovan McNabb led to locker-room discord.
The Eagles devolved that season from NFC champions to 6-10 and last place in the NFC East.
For that, McNabb is still agitated. He recounted the experience in an interview with Bleacher Report’s Master Tes released on Wednesday and blames Owens for breaking up a contender.
