Dungy turns to past, brings King to Indy
By TIMES WIRES
Published June 3, 2006
INDIANAPOLIS - Quarterback Shaun King, a Bucs starter when Tony Dungy was Tampa Bay's coach, signed a contract with Dungy's Indianapolis Colts on Friday.
King, who did not play in the NFL last season, joined the Detroit Lions in March and was released Wednesday.
"We just think Shaun will add to our quarterback situation," said Dungy, now the Colts' coach. "He's an experienced guy who has played in a lot of big games and won."
A Bucs second-round draft choice in 1999, has started 24 of 34 career games and has passed for 4,566 yards and 27 touchdowns. He took over as starter near the end of his rookie season in 1999, when the Bucs reached the NFC Championship Game.
King, a St. Petersburg native, was a standout at Gibbs High before playing at Tulane. In high school he led the Gladiators to its first two playoff berths, in 1993 and '94, and in college he led the Green Wave to an undefeated season and a Liberty Bowl title in 1998.
"Both years he started for us (in Tampa Bay), we went to the playoffs and he was a big reason why," Dungy said.
Terrell Owens returned to his two favorite places: the football field and the spotlight.
"I'm here with a great coach, a great team, a great owner," Owens said. "I'm looking forward to the opportunity that I can make to help this team win. That's why they brought me in here."
Owens caught every pass thrown his way except one in a nearly two-hour practice, his first since being banished by the Eagles last season.
Jets receiver Wayne Chrebet officially retired, ending an 11-year career in which he overcame long odds to become a top player in team history. The team had a lavish retirement ceremony complete with video highlights, framed jerseys and 3-foot Chrebet bobblehead dolls.
The White House echoed with chants of "Here we go Steelers! Here we go!" as President Bush recognized the Super Bowl champions from Pittsburgh. The team gave Bush a jersey emblazoned with "43" to represent Bush's position in presidential history, and a football signed by team members.
Quarterback Mark Brunell has a small fracture in his left index finger and is expected to miss two to three weeks of offseason workouts.
