In between, Owens, who spoke softly before the large crowd after practice, was gracious about the chance he was getting with the Seahawks.
Peterson itching to play
The Minnesota Vikings are aiming to put Adrian Peterson in for some exhibition game carries before they clear him for the regular-season opener.
In order to get to that point, the star running back will have to start practicing. That could come next week. The coaching and medical staffs will evaluate Peterson's left knee after the Vikings return from San Francisco, the site of their first preseason game Friday night.
"I'm looking forward to being out here pretty soon. I've been out for like two weeks, and it's time to get going," said Peterson, who tore his anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments last December.
Coach Leslie Frazier said Peterson's pushing to join the team for practice has been "never ending," but Peterson said Wednesday he's let up on his lobbying.
Richardson to see Andrews
Trent Richardson's ailing left knee may be more seriously injured than the Cleveland Browns thought
The team issued a one-sentence statement saying that the running back, picked No. 3 overall in April's draft, will see James Andrews.
Richardson, who played at Alabama, had an MRI in Cleveland on Tuesday. Results have not been revealed. He is going to see Andrews for a second opinion.
Tuck: Thanks, Clay
Giants defensive end Justin Tuck doesn't buy a comment from Packers linebacker Clay Matthews that Green Bay lost its playoff game and New York didn't beat them en route to winning the Super Bowl last season.
"Thank you for giving us the game, Clay," Tuck said with a touch of sarcasm. "I appreciate it a lot."
Tuck didn't want to say whether the Packers played their best in the 37-20 loss that led New York to the NFC title game, but he said the Giants won the game and the Packers didn't hand them anything.
"When they fumbled the ball, I think it was us that stripped it out," Tuck said. "When we sacked them, I think it was us who beat their O-linemen and got to [quarterback Aaron] Rodgers. So, I don't think they just ole'd everything and gave us the game."
