Yesterday we wrote about Terrell Owens and the apparent lack of interest in the 35-year-old receiver.
Today, Drew Rosenhaus (your favorite, I know) says that's not the case.
“These are several teams that are interested in signing Terrell,” Rosenhaus told profootballtalk.com. “I have been in negotiations with these teams. I will not identify these teams at this time.”
Rosenhaus added that he and T.O. expect to have a deal in place by next week, if not sooner.
I've seen most experts take the stance that Owens' skills have significantly deteriorated. And while I agree that he's not the receiver he was in the past, 1,052 yards and 10 touchdowns is nothing to sneeze at.
Plus, consider Owens' personality. Isn't this the type of situation where he excels? You all remember the Super Bowl. He is king of the Nobody thinks I can do it...I'll prove them wrong mentality we see all over sports nowadays.
Don't get me wrong, I agree that he's a distraction, disruption, etc. But would you really be surprised if he put together a Pro Bowl year in 2009 wherever he lands? Maybe he has just one more great year left? Training in the offseason, reminding himself of all the teams that didn't want him?
I'm just saying.
Some other notes:
** Bob Glauber of Newsday writes about rumors that the Giants could trade for Browns wide receiver Braylon Edwards. I wonder what the reaction in this town would be if that move went down.
** In case you missed it from this morning, Scott Wright of draftcountdown.com answered his weekly questions, including one on whether Beanie Wells would be a good fit with the Eagles.
** "My worst break-up was with Stacy. It was a Sunday morning, we were reading the paper, and I said 'Oh my God, I think the Eagles could clinch the NFC East.' And she said that...we're done."
If you have no clue what I'm talking about.
