NFL Free Agent Rumors: Multiple teams thought of signing Terrell Owens


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.

    Cometo the Niners. We’ll use you as a redzone threat like what we did with Moss

  • James D. Jackson

    The ideal team and ideal position for Terrell Owens is Tightend for any team but ideal for the Atlanta Falcons. They can get him dirt cheap, he would be the second fastest tightend in the league after Vernon Davis, and he would be great in the redzone and quickly get to blocking assignments.

      He can’t block bro

    I had thoughts of doing Kate Upton but that never worked out either.

    I still think that Owens can play ball as he shown his conditioning and he can catch better than most, so get over the few drops. Owens is big and fast and would be cheap and you could cut the dude if you had problems. But I am not expecting my football team to be choir boys, but I expect the receivers to go across the middle which Owens does. Last thing is that 99% of the teams loss last year and Seattle won with the Mouth in Sherman who can back up that talk!
