Owens Dresses for Part in Pro Bowl Workout

Saturday, February 12, 2005; Page D02

Terrell Owens just can't stay off the field.

Although the Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver already gave up his spot at the Pro Bowl because of his ankle injury, Owens participated in the NFC squad's practice in Kapolei, Hawaii, yesterday. Owens ran a few routes and later caught a few passes on the sideline after posing for pictures in his Pro Bowl uniform.

Owens returned to the Eagles' lineup for the Super Bowl just 6 1/2 weeks after surgery to place two screws in his ankle. The all-pro caught nine passes for 122 yards in Philadelphia's 24-21 loss to New England.

Also yesterday, offensive coordinator Brad Childress signed a three-year contract extension that will keep him in Philadelphia through the 2008 season.

BENGALS: Running back Rudi Johnson, who will play for the AFC in tomorrow's Pro Bowl, repeated his desire to sign a long-term contract with Cincinnati before he becomes an unrestricted free agent next month.

But unless his agent can work out a deal, the Bengals are likely to designate Johnson as their franchise player just two months after he broke Corey Dillon's franchise record with 1,454 yards rushing and 12 touchdowns. That could lead to a holdout.

"Hopefully we'll get something done," Johnson said. "If not, we'll see what happens."

JETS: New York hired John Zernhelt as tight ends coach, and Dick Curl was made assistant to Coach Herman Edwards. Zernhelt joins the Jets after serving as Citadel coach last season. Curl served as senior offensive assistant/special projects coach last season.
