I'd like to see how he does in Pittsburgh if he will be a good samaritan like he was in Buffalo. He seems to have matured quite a bit since he has had to accept he is no longer a dominant reciever and he could really help out our team.
Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll just told 710ESPN Seattle that his team will not be pursuing Terrell Owens this offseason.
"No, you know, I go way back with T.O.," Carroll said. "I was there (as an assistant coach) when he showed up with the 49ers when he was a rookie and nobody knew he had any initials or anything. And I really liked Terrell. But we won't be able to do that this time around. I think at our time in our program development we're going to continue to work with the guys that we've got and go in a different direction than that. ... We're really looking to get the young guys going as much as we can."
I saw the new episode of his VH1 show and they had when he came home from his meeting with the Bengals and found out they weren't going to sign him. Dude was crushed.
yeah, yesterday TMZ reported he was close to signing with them but a team source and guy from the Cincy Enquirer denied it
According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, Antonio Bryant's surgically repaired was still a "problem" this offseason.
Mort suggests the health of Bryant's knee as "one factor to watch" in the Bengals' reported interest in Terrell Owens. Bryant underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee last August, and it continued to bother him off and on throughout the 2009 season. It was already a slight concern that he was "resting" the knee during offseason work, and Mort's report is cause for further pause. There's reason to believe Bryant's knee could be worse than the Bengals have let on.
In a recent interview with Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports, Rams running back Steven Jackson sung the praises of a couple of the team's young wideouts.
Unfortunately, Jackson didn't know their names.
Jackson likely knows the name of a veteran wideout who could soon be joining the team. Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports, and we separately have confirmed, that the Rams are in "serious pursuit" of Terrell Owens.
Owens has talked openly about playing for a contender. In recent years, the Rams have contended only for the first overall pick in the draft, finishing at No. 2 twice before finally applying that extra effort required to climb that specific mountain.
Along the way, the Rams have won a total of six games in three seasons, bottoming out at 1-15 in 2009.
The competitive limitations that the Rams are experiencing likely means that T.O. will want more money from the Rams than other teams would have to pay. It has been widely believed that Owens seeks $5 million for 2010.
The Rams' interest proves that not every member of the 2004-05 Eagles coaching staff has adopted an N.F.W. approach to a reunion with T.O. Head coach Steve Spagnuolo served as linebackers coach and offensive coordinator Pat Shurmer was the quarterbacks coach in Philly when Owens had a great first season, followed by a Year Two nightmare culminating in a four-game unpaid suspension and an invitation to get the hell out for the rest of the campaign, with pay.
In contrast, Spagnuolo and Shurmur had no interest in trading for long-time Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb.
The Bengals also are interested in Owens, and it's expected that the situation will heat up this week. Apparently, it already is.
