Brooks: A plan for Terrell Owens
But was it too fast?
That was the question posed by Fort Worth Star-Telegram beat writer Clarence Hill, who said eyebrows were raised around the Dallas Cowboys' clubhouse when Owens practiced with his new team Wednesday. Hill reached out to NFL spokesman Greg Aiello on Thursday to find out if the Seahawks violated NFL rules.
"Players have a 3-day acclimation period during the preseason," Aiello said. "Day 1 is for the physical and meetings. Day 2 and 3 the player may participate, but only in helmet and shells or a padded shirt. Day 4 and for the rest of camp is in full pads. The Cowboys are doing it correctly. Don't know about Seattle."
UPDATE: Aiello later said in an email to The Associated Press that the NFL was gathering facts about Owens' practice.
