ESPN.com reports that the Philadelphia Eagles, my sterling example of how not to handle a disgruntled player who wants out, are now suing Dallas Cowboys wide receiver (and former Eagle) Terrell Owens for $770, 000 for bonus monies he has yet to repay the team.
The NFL is a $6 billion business, and one of the more popular and successful franchises is suing a player that they released for less than a million dollars. That Owens owes the money isn’t in question. Whether it should be worth Philly’s time and organizational focus is another matter.
Perhaps the Eagles figured that since they didn’t get any value for Owens they should at least get some of their money back.
