TO Concerned Teams Perceive Him As A Troublemaker

Published July 13, 2010

NEW YORK (AP) — Terrell Owens says he's concerned teams are swayed by the perception that he's a troublemaker and that's why none have signed the free-agent receiver.

Owens told The Associated Press on Tuesday that his season in Buffalo proved he won't be a distraction. Owens insists his statistics from 2009 are deceiving because the Bills dealt with coaching upheaval and offensive line injuries. The 36-year-old believes he can still be an elite NFL receiver.

Owens says talk that he has unrealistic salary demands is untrue. He's comfortable waiting until after training camp starts to sign with a team.

For now, he's keeping busy promoting his reality show on VH1. The second season premiered Sunday.
