According to multiple reports, Terrell Owens is expected to work out on Tuesday in California, but it’s not certain how many teams will attend his individual training session.
Owens is coming off anterior cruciate ligament surgery, but hopes to play a 16th season. However, many team representitives are quite skeptical about his physical ability, but it’s probable that some squad will take a chance on the highly touted receiver.
Here are just a few teams that might be interested in acquiring Owens.
Buffalo Bills – He played for the Bills in ‘09, but with the team’s recent success, I could see Owens returning to “North America’s team,” so he can help Ryan Fitzpatrick and Fred Jackson contend for an AFC East crown. With Owens in the line-up, it would most likely help Steve Johnson and Donald Jones catch more passes, as well as open up the run game even more.
Denver Broncos – Tim Tebow mania is officially underway in the “Mile High” city, but adding Owens might help the young gunslinger, as well as the team’s offense. Tebow doesn’t exactly have a star-studded cast around him, but in a division that’s a complete toss up, (sorry Chargers fans), he could certainly help or at least provide a much-needed spark for the remainder of the season.
Washington Redskins – With Santana Moss sidelined for roughly the next five-seven weeks, why wouldn’t Mike Shanahan roll the dice? The NFC East is a complete mess and no team has emerged from the pack, so possibly adding Owens might help. He’d likely be the number one receiver on the depth chart, and could be a valuable weapon for quarterback John Beck.
San Francisco 49ers – Why wouldn’t T.O. not want to return to the “City by the Bay?” As of recently, they’re winning and leading the NFC West too, so maybe he’d want to join a possible contender. The NFL season is still far from over, but adding him to the offense might make San Francisco even scarier.
