Len Pasquarelli reports: "In the latest twist to Owens' offseason saga, the Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver has been invited to play for the Sacramento Kings' summer league team. The invitation to join Sacramento draft choices, free agents, younger veterans and music mogul Master P on the roster was confirmed Friday by agent Drew Rosenhaus and a Kings spokesman."
But it will only happen if the Eagles give permission, which makes it, says Len, "a longer shot than a 3-point buzzer-beater from half court."
It so happens that I know a little something about T.O., music moguls, and summer league games. A couple of years ago I sat courtside during a summer league game that included T.O., Tony Gonzalez, Magic Johnson, and Snoop Dogg. My impressions:
T.O. puts the guys on the cover of Men's Health to shame. I've never set eyes on a more perfect male physique.
Gonzalez is really, really good at basketball. He obviously made the right choice by going to football, but he can play.
Magic is huge. It's amazing how big, strong, and healthy an HIV-positive person can be if he has access to the best medicine money can buy. He could grab eight rebounds a game in the NBA today.
Snoop is so skinny it's ridiculous. I think my 5-year-old nephew has bigger arms than Snoop does.

No defense generated more pressure last year than Connor Barwin and the Eagles, but did that pressure do them any good?
