Owens has a few things going for him despite his knee injury.
Drew Rosenhaus is a great agent who can promote anyone, and the work ethic of Owens should allow him to heal faster than expected.
Contenders will be seeking his services, and teams will not view the 37-year-old as a No. 1 receiver (like Cincinnati did last season).
The Jets may have signed Plaxico Burress and Derrick Mason, but it's unreasonable to believe that both veteran receivers will give New York exactly what they expect in return.
The Arizona Cardinals could be a viable option for both sides, because the team lost Steve Breaston to their old offensive coordinator Todd Haley in Kansas City.
Owens will be on his best behavior, because the deal will be only one year, and he'll most likely want to keep playing after the contract.
