Seahawks Confirm Terrell Owens Workout
In Terrell Owens' quest to get back to the NFL, the Seattle Seahawks would seem to be a fine fit. They are starved for depth at the wide receiver position, and there are not a lot of strong options out there right now.
UPDATE: Monday, August 6 at 11:20 a.m. ET by Adam Wells
It turns out that Owens was just trying to throw people off the scent, as Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk is reporting that "the Seahawks have confirmed that receiver Terrell Owens has a Monday tryout with the team."
Florio also reports that even if the Seahawks offer him a job, he would still "have to make it from the 90-man roster to the final 53."
This is an interesting gamble for the Seahawks to take, but Owens would cost virtually no money and if he does make the preseason roster and isn't effective, the team can always cut him loose without giving it a second thought.
-----------END OF UPDATE----------
According to Seattle sports radio host Dave Mahler, Owens was going to the Emerald City for a "visit" with the team.
However, not long after Mahler posted his tweet, Owens responded by saying that he was not going to Seattle.
Owens last played in the NFL two years ago with the Cincinnati Bengals. He had 72 receptions for 983 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games. For a 36-year-old, those are great numbers and proof he still had something left in the tank.
Things quickly fell apart for Owens during that offseason, as ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported that the receiver tore his ACL.
Where will Terrell Owens play next season?
Given his controversial past, age and the injury, Owens could not find anyone to offer him a contract to play even a portion of the 2011 season.
Owens clearly still wants to play, though some of that could be financially related, as he has publicly stated (via GQ) that he is having money problems.
The Seahawks have Sidney Rice and Doug Baldwin, but there is a big void after those top two receivers. If they want Owens, or at least a look at him, it would have to intrigue him.
Of course, at 38 years old, coming off a major knee injury and not having played in the NFL in two years, the idea that he can have any kind of impact on the field if he were to get a deal somewhere is far-fetched.
