Terrell Owens says Donovan McNabb was jealous of him


It’s just like old times – Terrell Owens is all over your news.

The former NFL wide receiver who is reportedly going through a divorce, just says after getting married, appeared on the 94WIP Morning Show recently and spoke on a handful of topics.

One of them was centered around his time with the Philadelphia Eagles where T.O. more than bluntly suggested his former quarterback, Donovan McNabb, was jealous of him.

My thing is, I had nothing but respect and love for Donovan [McNabb]. I think he felt kind of slighted at how honestly, at probably the way the team, well actually the city, just embraced me while I was there considering when he got drafted they [fans] didn’t want him there and things like that. And then when I came there and I played so well—I wasn’t trying to take away from Donovan’s limelight or anything when I came there,”

Owens went on to suggest how he was a ‘rockstar’ when he came to Philadelphia and the concern was always could the team win without him.

He seemed to suggest his popularity ate at McNabb during their short tenure together.
