On Sunday, T.O. tweeted that he was, once again, unemployed.
I'm no longer a Seahawk. I THANK the organization 4 the opportunity, I'm truly blessed beyond belief. My FAITH is intact & will NOT waiver.— Terrell Owens (@terrellowens) August 26, 2012
Has Owens played his last down in the NFL? There aren’t many teams out there that’d give him another shot, but here are three potential landing spots.
When a cornerback has the nerve to call himself a team’s second-best receiver and he backs it up, you know you have wideout issues. New York is being forced to play Antonio Cromartie both ways this season because outside of Santonio Holmes, it doesn’t have a starting-caliber wide receiver on its roster.
Stephen Hill and Jeremy Kerley have promise, but they’re far from finished products. Rex Ryan has never been afraid of making noise—with his mouth or an acquisition—so if the Jets signed Owens, it wouldn’t be the least bit shocking.
Vincent Jackson is out. Robert Meachem is in. That definitely wasn’t a swap that improved the Chargers’ offense.
Who’s their No. 1 wideout? Meachem? Malcom Floyd?
Good luck with that, Philip Rivers.
Now, there’s no way T.O. could fill that void either, but at least he could inject a bit more talent into a position which San Diego is thin at. And of course, if there’s any quarterback in the league that wouldn’t take Owens’ garbage, it’s the fiery Rivers.
Sign Owens to replace Ocho?
I mean, obviously going from one diva wideout to another isn’t ideal, especially for a rookie QB in Ryan Tannehill. But with Chad Johnson no longer on the Dolphins, their receiving corps is downright pitiful.
Davone Bess is a solid slot and Legedu Naanee is quality depth, but neither are starting-caliber wide receivers. Again, Owens likely isn’t either. After all, he just got cut by the lowly Seahawks.
But the Phins need help on the outside more than anyone and Owens just happens to be one of the top talents on the open market.
