After having already lost Jeremy Maclin to an ACL injury, the Eagles receiving corps is looking exceptionally weak and vulnerable heading into the 2013 season.
Enter Terrell Owens.
The most productive receiver in franchise history is the most notable name available in free agency. He is also eager to end his career on the right note.
Owens' agent Jordan Woy has reportedly had conversations with "a bunch of teams" recently. The Eagles may have very well been one of those teams.
"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." - Jordan Woy
After losing Maclin, the last thing the Eagles were expecting was another season-ending injury to a member of their receiving corps.
Owens is said to be able to run just as well if not better than he did in Seahawks training camp last year.
In 2012, Owens' 40-yard dash time was clocked in as fast as 4.43—which was faster than he was able to run as a 23-year old rookie.
Owens has repeatedly expressed regret with how things ended in Philadelphia back in 2005. Had things gone down different, he may have ended his career with the Eagles.
If things continue to look the way they do now, he may very well get the opportunity to do just that.
