AS OF YESTERDAY, Terrell Owens wanted to return to the NFL, or become a professional bowler. But check back tomorrow, the week's still young. Owens, who played for the Eagles for 2 years, but has been out of the league for 3, told Blindside.com that he recently worked out with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and that he would like to sign with the Patriots. "I think that's a no-brainer. You look at what they've done over the years. Under the tutelage of Tom and coach [Bill] Belichick, I think the sky would be the limit in terms of what I'd be able to do. " If the Patriots don't call, however, the 39-year-old Owens apparently has a backup plan.

On March 16, 2004, the Birds were the talk of the NFL after signing free-agent superstar receiver Terrell Owens. With the team coming off of three straight NFC Championship Game losses, his addition seemed to be the move that would put the Eagles over the top. That proved to be the case during the 2004 season, as Owens provided quarterback Donovan McNabb the top-shelf wideout he'd been lacking. The pair took the team to Super Bowl XXXIX, which ended in a loss to the New England Patriots.

IT BEGAN with the acquisition of Terrell Owens. It continued with the drafting and re-signing of receiver DeSean Jackson, the signing of cornerback Asante Samuel, the disloyalty to safety Brian Dawkins, the hiring of Jim Washburn. After spending his first 5 years building a foundation of players and coaches of concrete character and solid talent, Eagles coach and football operations czar Andy Reid allowed himself to hire a handful of low-character, high-output prima donnas. Argue the involvement of former vice president Joe Banner, owner Jeffrey Lurie and current general manager Howie Roseman all you like: Nothing happens unless Reid signs off on it. Reid sought out a handful of narcissists of the worst possible sort: Smart enough to stay out of jail and out of the papers; but narcissists who ultimately could not resist the pull of their selfishness.

AND THUS it ends for Terrell Owens. For anyone who has even remotely followed T.O's career and had dealings with him, can anyone be surprised at its Greek-tragedy finish? Owens was cut on Sunday by the Seattle Seahawks - which presumably means his NFL career is effectively over. The former Eagle, who had a dramatic, if short, stint in Philadelphia, did not play last season following surgery on his left knee. He was trying to make a comeback with Seattle. "I'm no longer a Seahawk," he tweeted.

Terrell Owens has outrun a lot of opponents in his day - cornerbacks, safeties, court-mandated child-support payments - but it may be time for him to admit that age is one fast dude. (It probably would be wise for him to admit the same about those child-support bills.) Owens, 38, was cut on Sunday by the Seattle Seahawks, less than three weeks after signing a one-year contract. He hasn't played in a regular-season game since Week 15 in 2010, with Cincinnati, and didn't even make it to Seattle's final round of cuts, which have to come before 9 p.m. Friday.

Less than three weeks before the start of the regular season, the NFL and its referees union are no closer to an agreement to end the lockout of the officials. As replacement officials work preseason games - and generally get criticized for their performances - the league and officials Thursday disputed such issues as full-time employees and adding officiating crews. The Cowboys visit the Giants on Sept. 5 to open the season. Not since 2001 has the NFL played games that count in the standings with replacement officials, and that was just for one week.

AS HE BOLTED off the line of scrimmage, Terrell Owens tried to "shock release" stout cornerback Brandon Browner by crashing into the defender, then disengaging and breaking into the open. Browner, who was a Pro Bowler last year for Seattle, wasn't having any of it. He refused to let Owens free and rode the pass catcher with the second-most receiving touchdowns in NFL history hard into the turf. Welcome back to the NFL, T.O. "I was just extra excited to be going up against him," Browner said.

Changes to the NFL's kickoff rules appeared to account for a slight decline in the number of concussions reported across the league last season. That's according to a new study of injury data provided by the NFL Players Association. Jesse David, senior vice president at Edgeworth Economics, said the number of concussions reported on kickoffs decreased by about 43 percent from 2010 to 2011. The resulting slight drop-off in the overall number of reported concussions reverses a trend toward more head injuries in recent years.

Terrell Owens faces off with three of his four baby-mamas on Tuesday's episode of "Dr. Phil" (4 p.m., CBS3). Women named Kimber, Monique and Melanie claim the former Eagles wide receiver is delinquent on child-support payments and has little to no relationship with their kids that he fathered. Owens tells Dr. Phil he squandered most of the $80 million he had been paid in the NFL and blamed his travel schedule and living in different cities from the kids as to why he can't see them.
