T.O.'s new QB welcomes him

Trent Edwards is stepping into a dangerous position. He is the Buffalo quarterback responsible for getting the ball to Terrell Owens, now that the Bills have signed the received to a 1-year, $6.5 million contract.

He follows in the footsteps of Jeff Garcia with the 49ers, Donovan McNabb with the Eagles and Tony Romo with the Cowboys. And, well, you know how that all turned out.

On Day 1, Edwards said the right thing: "I am really excited about the addition of Terrell Owens to our team. We spoke earlier and both look forward to working hard this offseason. We share the common goal of winning football games. His ability and experience will add to our offense and the weapons we already have."

Owens in turn said Edwards has "tremendous upside."

Edwards was not the only Bills player thrilled for the arrival of T.O. "I'm as happy as our fans are," said safety Donte Whitner. (Read more player reaction from the Buffalo News by clicking here).

And as for all that has been written and said about Owens being selfish and tearing teams apart, "That's all hearsay," he says.

"I know a lot of my teammates back there in Dallas ... I have a lot of support from those guys. It's very unfortunate what happened. But I must move on. This is another new beginning for me. I'm looking forward to this opportunity. I'm very excited to be here. The story will kind of write itself."
