T.O.'s house has been sold

Five years on the market. Yes, five.

Five years after it went on the market, the Moorestown mansion briefly occupied by former Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens has been sold.

Yes, five years on the market.

Given the state of real estate, it's safe to say that Owens, now with the Cincinnati Bengals, took a large bath on it. The sales price has not been released.

Owens bought the place -- a lavish 5-bedroom, 7½-bath with 7,917 square feet of living space and three-car garage by Rancocas Creek -- for $3.9 million in May 2004.

Owens initially put it on the market in October 2005 for $4.4 million.

He's been paying $37,000 a year in property taxes.

The driveway was the scene of one of the more bizarre sports news conferences in Philadelphia history. In August 2005, Eagles coach Andy Reid tossed Owens from camp for loutish behavior. The media followed Owens home, and he did interviews while performing sit-ups and playing basketball. His agent Drew Rosenhaus showed up later.

Realtor Melissa Rattner Young declined to release the sale price or the name of the buyer. Those details will be public record when the deed is recorded.
