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 Fitzpatrickand Fred Jacksoncontend for an AFC East crown. With Owens in the line-up, it would most likely help Steve Johnsonand Donald Jonescatch more passes, as well as open up the run game even more.
Denver Broncos – Tim Tebowmania 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 Mosssidelined 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.

Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys will invade Foxborough, Massachusetts on Sunday and certainly, they’d like to walk off the field with their third win of the season in their back pocket.
In some ways, this is a “must win” for the Boys; yet, it’s also an important game for Romo, who has been Jekyll and Hyde all season. However, Dallas’s gunslinger has won some “big games” and certainly, I think he’d like to add this one to his heroic resume.
Here are some games that Romo has helped Dallas prevail with an important win.
Dallas 21 – Indianapolis 14 (Nov. 19, 2006) – Against the Colts, Romo completed 19-of-23 passes for 226 yards, and tossed one interception, but received some additional help from running back Mario Barber, who rushed for two fourth quarter scores. This game was a significant stepping-stone for Romo, as he and his team handed the Colts their first loss of the season and ended their nine-game winning streak.
Dallas 37 – Green Bay 27 (Nov. 29, 2007) – In a game that decided the top seed in the NFC conference, Romo led Dallas to an impressive 11th win, as well as tossed four touchdown passes too. Besides completing 19-of-30 passes and finishing with 309 yards through the air, Romo also relied on his running game, and wide receiver Terrell Owens, who led the Cowboys receiving core with seven catches for 156 yards and one touchdown.
Dallas 24 – New Orleans 17 (Dec. 19, 2009) – In a critical “must win” contest, Dallas yet again handed another undefeated squad their first loss of the season, as well as watched Romo tear apart the Saints secondary for one touchdown and 22 completions. Yet, besides Romo’s ability to remain comfortable in the pocket and make smart reads, linebacker DeMarcus Warerecorded two sacks and two forced fumbles, which helped Dallas earn their ninth win of the ’09 season.
Dallas 34 – Philadelphia 14 (Jan. 9, 2010) – Despite losing two playoff games against New York and Seattle, Romo finally won his first postseason contest, as well as tossed two touchdowns in the win. Yet, despite their exciting victory against the Eagles on this particular day, Dallas’s playoff run ended in Minnesota a week later, as Brett Favreand the Vikings pulverized the Cowboys in the NFC Divisional round by a score of 34-3.
* New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady literally ignored Antonio Cromartie‘s comments on Wednesday, as well as told the media, “I don’t care what he says about me, I really don’t.” He also admitted that he’s a great player, but didn’t respond to his ignorant comments.
