If the Buffalo Bills go out and get an experienced, veteran quarterback for the 2010 season, they should transition tag Terrell Owens.

I know that Terrell is coming off one of the worst years of his career, and he is 37 years old, but he's an asset the Bills cannot afford to lose.

The Bills have inexperienced back-ups at wide receiver. With Lee Evans returning next year and the likely departure of Josh Reed, the Bills have no other receivers capable of putting up similar numbers. That’s why it's important for the Bills to keep Terrell for one more season. At this point the Bills cannot afford to lose another asset.

Bringing Terrell back at over $8 million does not hurt the team. His appearances on the covers of national magazines and television shows make the Bills more relevant on a national level. Being much more relevant makes the Bills more money and helps make this small market team’s bottom line stronger.

So what’s there to lose? It seems like it's a "win win” for all.

"Get your popcorn ready" cause if Michael Vick is coming to town...it's time for season two of the T.O. Show in Buffalo!!
