Said Woy, via the report:
I know if he goes out there and gets a shot, he'll make a team. We've talked to a lot of teams that have said he's a great talent, we're set as of right now, but if we have injuries, we may reach back out.
The Seattle Seahawks signed Owens to a one-year, $1 million deal in Aug. 2012 but ended up cutting him before the season began. He played in two preseason games for Seattle, managing just two catches while dropping multiple on-target passes.
Physically, Owens still has what it takes to endure another season in the NFL. With his athleticism, size (6'3'', 224 lbs) and strength, T.O. has always been an imposing receiver, capable of out-muscling coverage and racking up yardage after the catch.
He reportedly ran the 40-yard dash in 4.45 seconds before being signed by the Seahawks last year, and in his last NFL season with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2012, he racked up 72 catches for 983 yards and nine touchdowns. That included a 222-yard game against the Cleveland Browns and a 141-yard game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Despite a vexing personality, Owens, a six-time Pro Bowler, could still help out a team lacking options at wideout.
