It does not matter how old Terrell Owens gets, he continues to remain in tremendous shape for a possible comeback to the National Football League. Owens has not played in an NFL game since 2010, when he posted 72 receptions for 983 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games with the Bengals.
Every passing year makes it more and more unrealistic that Ownes will get a chance to play for the first time in more than a decade, but he will never stop trying.
The former NFL wide receiver wants a job, and even at 48-years-old, he told the Fubo Sports Network that he is looking for a gig with the Buccaneers. after the incident with Antonio Brown.
“If you think about where they are in the season, they don’t need me for a 16-game season,” Owens said. “Three to four games at the max. So, yes, I feel like I can go in, I can contribute at a high level and can be productive.”
With Brown gone, Tom Brady could use all the weapons he can get, but it is unlikely that Bruce Arians will bring an aging WR who was also a diva during his time in the league.
“I know that I can do it,” TO said.
The six-time Pro Bowl playmaker attempted an NFL comeback in 2012 after missing all of 2011 season following a knee surgery. He had a brief stint with the Seattle Seahawks before being released after playing in two preseason games.
“We really liked the group that we assembled,” Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll explained in August 2012, per ESPN. “Terrell came in here and busted his tail and he looked really effective right from the start. But as we just took a look at our guys that are coming through the program and growing up with us we thought that it would be best for us to stay with those guys.”
In the meantime, Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians was unsure if the team would officially release Brown, or if he will go on a designated list.
