"I told him it meant a lot to me," Phillips said. "It was a good talk."
Owens tracked down Phillips' cellphone number and called him.
"I think it's funny, but I'm good friends with Jim Farris [who played for Phillips in Atlanta in 2003] and he said, 'Dude, you will love Wade Phillips,' " Owens said from Miami. "He's a players' coach, and he's been there before. I guess from an offensive standpoint Wade is a kind of guy who wants to get his playmakers the ball."
I wonder if Owens ever called the Tuna? Or maybe he sent him a text message that said "#81 is open throw 2 me".
