Get your popcorn ready… Terrell Owens is back.
After an impressive workout yesterday, the 38-year old reciever has agreed to a one-year contract with the Seattle Seahawks. His time in the 40-yard dash was reportedly 4.45 seconds. Not bad for a man near 40, who’s coming off of acl surgery.
Terrell Owens worked out yesterday at a high school in Calabasas, California; but the turn out to watch the reciever may have been a bit thinner than the 37-year old had hoped. Yes, former teammate and ESPN analyst Jerry Rice was there with a gang from Bristol, and of course T.O’s agent Drew Rosenhaus was in attendance but there were some glaring omissions. Of the 32 NFL teams, not a single one sent a scout or any personnel.
Rosenhaus stated today on ESPN Radio’s “Mike and Mike in the Morning”that this wasn’t a shock to him. He said that the workout was planned to generate interest or “create buzz.” Neither him or his client view their absence’s to be a negative.
“Just because they weren’t there doesn’t mean they weren’t interested,” he said. “I can guarantee that all 32 teams were interested.”
On a football field no one is safe; just ask Jason Campbell. As shown by this weeks’ antics the sidelines are just as dangerous; just ask Sean Payton and his broken leg. The Saints coach wasn’t the only coach that got caught up in the game. Andy Reid of the Eagles took a punch to the gut from his own player. Jim Harbaugh of the 49ers and Jim Schwartz of the Lions almost came to blows after the contest between their two teams. Thanks to Michael Vick, not even the cheerleaders were safe. But fanns, players, coaches alike need still be weary; as the “monster” plays tonight.
Brandon Marshall is hardly one to shy away from the headlines. This week was no exception. He was quoted admitting that he has been too unemotional this season and has vowed to change that beginning tonight against the Jets.
“I need to turn the switch on,” the Dolphins Wide Reciever said after practice Thursday. “I’m going to turn it on Monday night. You watch.”
