Doesn't sound like Flynn is going to start!
ESPN's John Clayton reported Sunday that, when the team enters training camp, Jackson will be the one to take No. 1 reps. Furthermore, Clayton said Flynn simply hasn't been impressive to his new coaching staff.

"[Flynn] hasn't wowed anybody in all the offseason program, Clayton said, via rotoworld. ... It's still gonna be a three-way competition. Because of that, Flynn's going to have to pick things up and wow everybody or at least take control of it during camp. He's not done it yet."

Who knows, the taste of humility and rejection he has had might keep him in check this season. But then again, maybe not. Especially when the losses start adding up.

getting T.O. to agree to a contract is like getting a homeless man to agree to eating a steak. all you have to do is offer.

Why is he even doing this? His salarly will be nothing more than a hot dollar in his pocket. Go bankrupt and get it over with.

He has a lot of mouths to feed.
I'm not convinced he makes the team.
He was part owner/party player of an Area league team in Allen, Texas and got booted for not showing up and playing.
Now, sources tell us the Wranglers aren't budging -- refusing to pay Owens the 160k or issue a mea culpa.

We're told things have gotten downright nasty, with Wranglers owner Jon Frankel accusing Owens of blowing off 4 additional team events ... something T.O. vigorously denies.

He only wanted to play home games or something.
We'll see.

How can you feel bad for him?

All the advantages that have been extended to him, the exorbitant wage he's been given, and he still bites the hand that feeds 'em...

I am a very compassionate man; but this @$$hole? No Way...

I've seen a few interviews of him after he lost everything... regardless if it's his fault, I can't help for feel sorry for the guy. Whether or not I like the guy, I wouldn't wish losing everything on anyone... it's a very lonely feeling. He's been given another chance... I hope he's learned from his mistakes and manages to pull together some money for retirement.

I mean it's not like he kicked my dog. I ain't mad.

Randy Moss got a contract.

By comparison, this seems completely sensible.
