Will Any NFL Team Pick Up Terrell Owens?
Terrell Owens, 37, is looking to get his career back on track after having to deal with off-season surgery to repair his anterior cruciate ligament. After declaring himself ready for action, Owens held a workout in Calabasas, California to show NFL teams that he’s ready for action. Unfortunately for Owens, no teams showed up.
But does that mean that no NFL team will take a chance of the likely future hall of famer?
“I definitely feel there are some teams out there that are interested,” he told ESPN.
The workout, which was televised on ESPN and the NFL Network, may not have been attended by any representatives from prospective teams who might need the services of Owens but they were likely not completely blind to the fact that Owens participated in a number of drills to prove his readiness.
Owens’ agent Drew Rosenhaus has plans to send the tape of the workout to all 32 NFL teams. But something tells us that they may have silently been watching from a distance. The reality is that Owens is too good of a talent to pass up. Regardless of his age and the fact he’s coming off of a major surgery, Owens has always proven he’s one of the hardest workers around. Last season he proved his effectiveness with 72 receptions for 983 years and nine touchdowns as a Cincinnati Bengal. That kind of productivity could help several NFL teams on the brink of a playoff birth. Especially when you consider how much the league has turned into a passing league this season. Teams including Oakland, San Francisco, Tennessee and Washington could all use Owens to help their passing games.
“I only need one team,” Owens told the NFL Network. “I only need one chance.”
Who will give him that chance?
