It appears the wide receiver market isn’t what it once ones.
Sure, Eric Decker is still a free agent and waiting for a team to ink him to a contract, but understandably teams are worried about throwing big money towards players like Decker, James Jones and more.
That’s likely why a handful of NFL teams apparently had the grand idea to potentially sign former Pro Bowl wide receiver, Terrell Owens.
Yes, you read that correctly – teams (not just one, multiple) have been so fed up with the current market that they’ve reportedly toyed with the idea of signing Owens according to Mike Freeman. However, no team has actual gone through with the idea and reportedly thought better of it (smart idea):
Several teams did in fact consider the possibility of signing Terrell Owens but decided against it.
Owens, for what it’s worth, says he can still play at the NFL level though that’s pretty questionable at best.
His last activity was with the Seattle Seahawks in 2013 and he was unable to crack the 53-man roster, so it would take the perfect situation for him to land a gig on an NFL roster.
