We reported yesterday that Terrell Owns was still eyeing a return to the NFL, stating that he can “still play” and feels that he could thrive if he landed with an “open-minded team”. Turns out he thinks the Minnesota Vikings are open-minded, or something along those lines.
Veteran wide receiver Terrell Owens could potentially be a good fit with the Minnesota Vikings.
At least, Owens seems to think so.
Owens, who hasn’t found work since he was cut by the Seattle Seahawks in training camp last season, told NFL Network Wednesday that both the Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs would be suitable options for him to make a comeback with.
Owens cited the Vikings’ offense and his relationship with wide receivers coach George Stewart as reasons for marking Minnesota as a favorable destination. Kansas City, on the other hand, is now under the guidance of Owens’ former coach with the Philadelphia Eagles, Andy Reid.
I’m inclined to think to think otherwise. Owens hasn’t caught a pass since 2010 when he posted a sub-par season with the Cincinnati Bengals. He chalks most of the league’s reluctance to sign him up to “politics”. He insists that he has matured and that he could be a good fit as a veteran presence for a young receiving corp.
The way I look at it though, the Vikings no longer have Percy Harvin on the roster. So they have room for another bad habit. Kidding. Kind of. We’ll see.
