Terrell Owens Wants To Play For Minnesota Vikings or Kansas City Chiefs


Six time NFL Pro-Bowl wide receiver Terrell Owens still wants to play in the NFL, despite not catching a pass since 2010 when he was a member of the Cincinnati Bengals.

According to Owens, who will turn 40 in December, he still has plenty of gas left in his tank and although no teams have called recently, two franchises he has his eyes on are the Minnesota Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs, namely because of their West Coast offenses.

Per Owens, via NFL.com:

Has Owens heard from another NFL team since his release from the Seahawks?

“Nothing as of right now,” he said. “So I understand the process. Obviously teams are really taking a closer look in evaluating their younger players. Being a free agent, I understand that later in the months as training camp starts, they’ll start looking for veterans.”

Though he obviously can’t be choosy at this stage, Owens explained his best fit would come with a team operating a West Coast offense. He cited the Minnesota Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs as options.

T.O. teamed up with either Alex Smith or Christian Ponder/Matt Cassel. Prime time television, right there.
