The St. Louis Rams are reportedly nearing a deal with Terrell Owens for the upcoming NFL season. Sporting a receiving core of Donnie Avery, Laurent Robinson, and rookie Mardy Gilyard, the Rams could use a legit touchdown threat like Owens.
Sure, at age 36 Owens has lost a step or two over the last few seasons, but he's still a scoring threat wherever he goes.
True, his production did drop off a bit recently— dropping from 81 catches to 69 to 55 in 2007, 2008, 2009, respectively—but his touchdown numbers haven't really showed any signs of dropping.
I'd argue his 2009 season, a five-touchdown year in Buffalo, could be moreso attributed to the quality of quarterback he played with.
In other words, Brian Brohm, Trent Edwards, and Ryan Fitzpatrick aren't Tony Romo.
So, now that Owens has left Buffalo for greener pastures, where should he go?
Reportedly, the teams that have serious interest in him are the Cincinnati Bengals and the St. Louis Rams. Neither team is a real threat in its respective conference to make a stop in Dallas in February, but for Owens, a paycheck is a paycheck.
I'm going to assume Marvin Lewis doesn't want another "character" in his locker room which already has Chad Ochocinco.
Here's why if Drew Rosenhaus and Terrell Owens come calling, the St. Louis Rams need to sit and listen.
