    Owens missed random drug test

    Owens calls missed random drug test
    'not a big deal'
    Associated Press

    IRVING, Texas -- Terrell Owens acknowledged Monday having missed a random drug test several weeks ago, blaming it on a "communication problem involving cell phone numbers."

    He also said he was in New York last week talking about his absence with league officials the day he agreed to a $34 million new contract with the Dallas Cowboys.

    "I'm not really worried about anything," Owens said Monday afternoon in an interview with The Associated Press. "It's not a big deal. Anything I do is going to grab headlines. I have nothing to hide. I've made a statement and that's it. It's basically a dead issue."

    In the rest of the statement, Owens said: "It was openly discussed and cleared up in a meeting that I had at the NFL office last week. I have been in the NFL for over 12 years and have never had a positive test for substance of any kind. That includes tests that took place as recently as last month. The matter was resolved to everyone's satisfaction last Tuesday, and everyone has moved on."

    Cowboys owner Jerry Jones also released a statement in which he referred to the testing issue as "a procedural matter that was resolved last week."

    "We were aware of all of the facts prior to Terrell's meeting in New York, and we had no reservations about extending his contract," Jones said. "We make those decisions based upon our knowledge of a player over the course of his entire career. We signed Terrell to the new contract because there are no issues with Terrell."

    Owens received a $7 million bonus and a $27 million, three-year extension that keeps him with the Cowboys through 2011, the season he turns 38. The deal was agreed to last Monday while Owens was in New York, then signed when he arrived in Dallas the next day.

    At the news conference about the contract, Owens mentioned having been in meetings at the league office. He called it "just taking care of business." Pressed further, he said, "It was fine. ... It was minor."

    For all the outlandish things surrounding Owens in his career, most have stemmed from his flamboyant personality -- such as squabbles with teammates and coaches, complaints about contracts and even a risque skit with one of TV's Desperate Housewives. Two years ago, he made headlines for what police initially considered a suicide attempt, but later was classified as an "accidental overdose" on prescription medicine.

    Yea, I read about this earlier somewhere... I guess he's now been placed on a "possibility" list of some sort by the NFL... But he's never been tested positive in all his years. As much as I don't like the guy, I'll give him a mulligan on this one...

    perhaps he was one of the players named by the steroid dealer. As for never failing a drug test he also perscribed some anti balding meds that masked steroids. Not that i think he is guilty but he is pretty damn ripped for a WR.

    I believe large percentage of professional athletes take or took some type of performance enhancer at some point in their careers.

    Dirty, clean he is still and will always remain a classless self absorbed sob.
    To call him a punk is a compliment.
