Free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens was on NFL AM this morning and was asked if any NFL teams have reached out to him.
“Nothing as of right now,” he said. “So I understand the process. Obviously teams are really taking a closer look in evaluating their younger players. Being a free agent, I understand that later in the months as training camp starts, they’ll start looking for veterans.”
Owens said that he believes the Chiefs and Vikings would both be a good fit for him. They must not feel the same way, since they haven’t even called him. He believes he’s being punished for the antics he pulled off throughout his career.
“It’s all politics,” he said. “I think a lot of it has to do with my reputation, things that I’ve done early in my career. I’m a changed person. I’m a bit more mature then I was in years past and I think if anybody out there can look past that, and look what I can bring to the team than some of the things that happened in the past, I can look past it and maybe they could and I could go in and help a team develop some of those younger guys.”
After not being able to make the Seahawks final roster last year, I can’t imagine anyone wanting to sign Owens. He’s done.
