expect more of this in the future for T.O.
Another year, another team.
Owens really messed this one up. After struggling mightily to find a place willing to sign him before the Bengals finally coughed up an offer just before the start of the season, Owens looked like he might be done. But Owens proved he could still produce as he racked up nine touchdowns and finished with just under 1,000 receiving yards as a Bengal. It’s just too bad once he proved he could be the old T.O. on the field, he also proved he could be the old T.O. off-the-field.
As the Bengals found ways to lose close games continuously, Owens started blaming the offensive coordinator, as well as other members of the coaching staff for the team’s struggles. You know you’re a cancer when you get injured and your team’s quarterback plays his best of game of the season with a receiver named Jerome Simpson. I seriously doubt any team will be interested in Owens at this point.
This would be his sixth team in nine seasons, and I think it’s safe to say he is what he is, and that should keep him out of the NFL for the rest of his career.
