Well maybe teams have seen enough of T.O.’s crybaby act. Every where this guy has been there has been division within the team. It goes back as far as San Francisco. The question is will there be anyone who will be interested in his services? Let’s take a look back at all the on & off the field controversy he has caused in his career.
• San Francisco- He and quarterback Jeff Garcia had words. He was critical of Garcia’s play and if I recall, he even went so far as to question things in his personal life. The 49ers let him walk into free agency and they came out to be a better team.
• Philadelphia- Then he went to the city of brotherly love looking for a new start. He and Donavan McNabb seemed to start out well, but that relationship soon went sour. T.O. was openly critical of McNabb and I can still remember T.O. following McNabb on the sidelines giving him an earful of who knows what. I remember in San Francisco and Philadelphia scenes where he showed no respect for coaches or coordinators. He would show his disapproval of certain plays and come to the sidelines and yell at coaches or coordinators.
• Dallas- Then the cowboy’s welcomed him. He seemed to really perform well in their system. However it wasn’t long before he slipped back into his old ways. He was critical of how the cowboys were using him & he eventually turned on Tony Romo. He accused Jason Witten of being the favorite target of Romo. Eventually the cowboys grew tired of the same ole song and dance from T.O. They let him walk.
• Buffalo- Then he had what many said would be his last chance. Buffalo wasn’t exactly the most talented team. He really laid an egg in Buffalo. At times he didn’t play with heart due to the fact that they were losing. I saw him play here in Nashville against the Titans, and he would not even run good routes if the play was not designed for him.

The truth is that T.O. is just a waste of talent along with many others. He had the athletic ability to be one of the greatest, but he did not have the heart. He is a lazy and selfish player who can only blame himself for not winning a super bowl, due to the fact that he is not a team player. I think this is probably the end of the road for T.O. I can’t see any team signing him. He destroys teams. I know the Baltimore Ravens have a good young group of players and they need a veteran wide receiver with experience, but this is not what they need. They would be better off trading for someone like Anquan Boldin. T.O. will only tear the team apart, or at least that is what history tells us. I think they or any team would be wise to steer clear of this guy.
