Bill Coats, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports former NFL DE Hugh Douglas is enjoying his retirement from the NFL. "I don't miss it at all," said Douglas, who works in sports-talk radio in Philadelphia, in a visit to Philadelphia Eagles camp in Lehigh, Pa. "Some guys retire, then the next year they're trying to get into a camp and hook up with a team. Not me. It's hot. I'm going home."

Eagles | Owens Brushes off Douglas

Ashley Fox, of the Philadelphia Inquirer, reports Philadelphia Eagles WR Terrell Owens was kneeling away from the fray, quiet and alone at practice Tuesday, August 2, when DE Hugh Douglas approached him. Douglas essentially extended his hand to Owens. Owens hardly looked at Douglas as he got up and walked away, leaving the brushed-off Douglas less than happy. "I was just trying to be nice," Douglas said later, after LB Jeremiah Trotter calmed him down, told him to give Owens some time, and promised to talk to the disgruntled wide receiver. "He's in a situation where he's trying to get something done, so he's probably a little upset. In a situation like that, I think the best thing to do is give him some space and let him work it out."
