As we reported yesterday, Terrell Owen’s agent Drew Rosenhaus indicated that one NFL team is “very interested” in his client. The speculation is that there’s a good chance that team is the New England Patriots.
The reason the Patriots have come up as the team that is likely looking into signing Owens, is because Rosenhaus was spotted on the their sideline while they were getting ready to face off with the Eagles on Sunday.
It would make sense for the Patriots to show some interest in Owens, since they lack a true deep threat. They had thought at the beginning of the season that Chad Ochocinco would come in and be their big play receiver, but he remains completely lost.
It wouldn’t surprise me if the Patriots dump Ochocinco and sign Owens as they march towards the playoffs. Because in order to go deep into the postseason, theythey’ll need another weapon that will produce when the game is on the line.
