IRVING -- Terrell Owens acknowledged today having missed a random drug test several weeks ago, blaming it on a -- quote -- "communication problem involving cell phone numbers."
He also said he was in New York last week talking about his
absence with league officials the day he agreed to a $34 million
new contract with the Dallas Cowboys.
Owens was not suspended or fined, although he could've been.
That's according to ESPN.com, which first reported the story,
citing NFL, team and player sources. The report also said Owens now
could face up to 24 tests per year as part of the league's
"reasonable cause" testing program for performance-enhancing
Owens though tells The Associated Press this afternoon that he's
not worried and he has nothing to hide.
