Terrell Owens exclusive phone interview on Best Damn Sports Show Period

Owens on his status: "Right now, Terrell Owens is kind of unemployed at the moment. I don't have anything bad to say about Baltimore. And Baltimore was definitely one of my choices, but they weren't high on the list. My priority was trying to get to the Eagles. We were a matter of minutes away from getting something done and that's when the 49ers and (GM Terry) Donahue got wind of that and sent me to Baltimore."

Owens (on his reaction to landing in Baltimore): "I'm just as shocked as everyone else. We were on the cusp of having something worked out with the Eagles and then the unfortunate happened within a matter of minutes."

Owens: "I've talked to (Baltimore GM) Ozzie (Newsome) a few times the last couple of days. Honestly, I didn't really feel comfortable with our conversation. He knows I'm really not happy with the situation. I'm going to stand my ground and see if we can't get something resolved."

Owens (responding to the question "Is this all about money?"): "I want to go where I feel comfortable and where I can be happy. I don't want to go anywhere where someone just trades me off to. I feel like I'm entitled as a free agent to have my choice. Obviously I want to get paid, but at the same time, I want to get happy too."

Owens: "Baltimore is in the AFC and Philly is in the NFC and (the 49ers) don't want to see me."

BEST DAMN SPORTS SHOW PERIOD with Terrell Owens airs tonight at 8:30 PM and 10:30 PM on Fox Sports Net.
