Three years ago, somewhat retired wide receiver Terrell Owens expressed his interest in trying out for the New England Patriots, whose receiver corps has been stricken by injuries during that time.

“Would I be open to it? Considering an organization like the Patriots? Yes,” Owens said. “Knowing Tom [Brady] and understanding the structure of what Bill Belichick, how he runs his ship, I have no problem with that. A lot of people will obviously speculate into what I may bring from a negative standpoint to that organization.”

Well, things must’ve changed over time, because wanting to play for them turned into trash-talking them years later.

The soon to be hall of famer had just had a competitive one-on-one game with former Houston Rockets guard Sam Cassell when the back and forth turned into playful banter that had T.O. calling the Patriots ‘cheaters.’

“You sound like the Patriots. You know what I mean?” T.O. says … “I don’t care about the Patriots. Belichick, Brady — they cheaters. They cheated. They cheated.”

Back in 2005, the Philadelphia Eagles lost to the New England Patriots in Owens’ only Super Bowl appearance, and years later, they would be busted for Spygate.

The Eagles would have to wait 13 years to get their revenge when they won their first ever Super Bowl this Past February against those same Patriots.
