Terrell Owens Signs with the Buffalo Bills

Football Maniaxs@@FantasymaniaxsSenior Writer IMarch 8, 2009

Evidently, Drew Rosenhaus wasn’t overplaying his hand when he said that several teams were interested in Terrell Owens, and that he would be signed by next week.

The talented but troubled wide receiver signed a one-year deal worth $6.5 million. Owens is coming off a season where he caught 69 passes for 1,052 yards and 10 touchdowns with the Dallas Cowboys.

“I’m leaving America’s team for North America’s team,” Owens said at his news conference.

I think this move clearly shows what the NFL as a whole thinks of him. They know he is a talented player that can help an offense, but they also know he can destroy a locker room.  

Owens just signed a four-year deal worth $34 million after the 2007 season.

The fact that he was so quick to take a one-year deal for only $6.5 million with a team that has finished above .500 once this decade shows that even Drew Rosenhaus did not believe he could create a bidding war for his client.
