Terrell Owens is acting surprised that he hasn't been signed by a new team yet. Unfortunately for him, teams have paid close attention to his past patterns of behavior. There isn't much interest around the league for a player who is perceived as a locker-room cancer. As his price comes down, and the inevitable preseason injuries hit, look for him to be signed by one of these ten teams.
Despite his shaky history with Donovan McNabb, Washington is a possible landing spot for Owens. The Redskins may be in the market for another big receiver, especially if their two former second round picks Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly don't pan out.
Mike Shanahan would obviously have a long, pre-contract discussion with Owens before this possibility could ever work out. But if Owens was willing to work hard (and drastically lower his asking price), and he made assurances that he wouldn't end up as a distraction, Shanahan might consider him.
Signing Owens is a move that would have been typical of the Raiders in the past. After all, Owens' bad attitude seems to fit in nicely with Oakland's reputation.
This year has been different for the Raiders in terms of their offseason moves. There has been sensibility and logic in Oakland for once, and the team hasn't made any foolish acquisitions. Still, Jason Campbell might benefit from having another big body to throw to, and they may consider signing Owens down the road.
With the looming issues of Vincent Jackson's suspension and holdout, the Chargers could use another big receiver to fill in. As with any team, the price would have to be right, but the situation in San Diego makes this a logical fit for both sides.
Owens might not get the contract he's looking for, but this would give him the opportunity to play for a contender.
This isn't the type of move normally associated with Tennessee, but Owens could definitely provide help on offense. With the constant threats of Vince Young and Chris Johnson, Owens would have plenty of opportunities for man-on-man coverage.
Tennessee probably wouldn't offer much of a contract, which might be the sticking point in this match.
The Bears don't currently have a true No. 1 receiver, and gunslinger Jay Cutler could certainly benefit from Terrell Owens' presence. Although Owens is no longer a great option at No. 1, he could still function as a complementary No. 2.
With the other big moves the Bears have orchestrated this off-season, don't be surprised if they give Owens a call.
Hines Ward is getting older, and the Steelers could certainly use a reliable No. 2 receiver. Of course, with all of the character issues surrounding Big Ben, Pittsburgh may not want to add any more players of questionable reputation.
The Seahawks have shown some interest in some big-name receivers this offseason, and it wouldn't be surprising to see them take a look at Owens. Pete Carroll wants a big-bodied target, and if he can't find a way to pry Vincent Jackson away from San Diego, he may take a chance on T.O.
John Fox is on the hot seat this year. He may be willing to try anything to win, including adding T.O. as a target for his new quarterback Matt Moore.
The Panthers need another good option outside of Steve Smith, and Owens could handle the role. Plus, his big body would give them a good red-zone receiver.
Why not? Stranger things have happened. Randy Moss was once considered a character risk too, before the Patriots took a chance on him.
With Moss and Welker, T.O. would be relegated the role of No. 3, but he would be an excellent option for Brady. New England's offensive dominance is dwindling away, and Belichick might be the one to take a risk on Owens.
The Lions have one of the best receivers in the league in Calvin Johnson, and a reliable No. 2 in Nate Burleson. Signing T.O. as a No. 3 would definitely help their cause, and might take some additional pressure off of Johnson.
Owens might not be interested in playing a No. 3, but he could be a good fit to the Lions receiving corps. It would also benefit Matthew Stafford's second-year development.
