Terrell Owens to Make NFL Return?
Terrell Owens is 38 years old, tore his ACL in his left knee last year, and has been on five teams. He’s also had a history for disrupting locker rooms, told GQ he is “in hell” and is nearly broke, and had a workout last year which attracted zero NFL teams and forced him to go play in the Indoor Football League to prove himself.
Here are some IFL numbers on T.O. He is 41st in receptions, 36th in receiving yards, 31st in yards per game, 44th in average per reception, and 15th in receiving touchdowns. Looking at those numbers, if I’m an NFL GM, why would I consider taking him before the other thirty or so people that are statistically better than him?
T.O. claims that the IFL has made him a better route runner, and I don’t doubt that, but I wouldn’t want him on my team. There just seems to be a lot better players than him out there in the IFL, and in free agency, and in the NFL Draft.
I really can’t see T.O. going to any team in the NFL in the foreseeable future. The only way I can see T.O. going to an NFL team is a couple weeks into the start of the season, when a bunch of injuries have already plagued teams. I honestly can’t say which team he would go to if he makes it back to the NFL, but if I had to guess, it would be the Tennessee Titans. I say this because, around the time of his workout, there had been a rumor that
I could also see the Chiefs, Jaguars, Rams and Seahawks possibly creeping in. I don’t think any of those teams will make a move, but you never know with the NFL. Some teams might look past the facts that I listed, or they just might want to make a silly PR move. I don’t mean to disrespect to T.O., I’ve always enjoyed watching him play, but I’m just stating the facts.
