Terrell Owens returns to the NFL with Seattle Seahawks

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

seth-edward-oneal.jpg

Yes, Terrell Owens is coming back to the NFL.

And he’s hoping the Seattle Seahawks’ search for another veteran wide receiver for the 2012 NFL football season will get him off the sidelines. The 38-year-old Owens had a tryout with the Seahawks on Monday morning, and hours later the team announced it had agreed to terms with the former star receiver. He hasn’t played in the NFL since the 2010 season with Cincinnati, when he caught 72 passes for 983 yards and nine touchdowns.

Foxsports.com first reported the agreement between Terrell Owens and the Seattle Seahawks. Terms of Owens’ contract weren’t available. Owens sat out the entire 2011 season following surgery on his left knee and failed to receive any offers. He then had surgery on his left knee and didn’t receive any offers to play last season.

The veteran Terrell Owens initially made his return this spring playing for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League. He had 35 catches for 420 yards and 10 touchdowns while playing eight of 11 games, but was released and lost an ownership stake in the team in May.

Owens, a third-round draft choice by San Francisco in 1996, has started 201 of the 219 regular-season NFL games he has played in his career. He has 1,078 receptions for 15,934 yards and 153 touchdowns – the second most in league history.

His nine seasons with at least 1,000 yards receiving and…

Terrell Owens tells why his Cincinnati Bengals are 2-11

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

seth-edward-oneal.jpgSurprise, surprise, T.O. is talking again.

In case you didn’t know, the Cincinnati Bengals are having a dismal 2010 NFL football season and Terrell Owens ain’t shy in telling why.

”I think there’s underachieving from the top down,” Terrell Owens said. ”You start with the owner, you start with the coaches. And obviously we as players, we are a product of what the coaches are coaching us throughout the course of the week.”

”Of course, we have to go out there and play the game. But in order for us to do what we’re allowed to do at the best of our abilities, the coaches have to put the players in the best position.”

Owens has been diplomatic for most of the season, which quickly spiraled out of control. He had only one catch for 22 yards during a 23-7 defeat in Pittsburgh on Sunday that was the 10th straight loss for the Cincinnati Bengals, matching the franchise record for consecutive losses in a season.

In the past couple of weeks, Owens has implied that the Bengals are getting out-coached and not making very good adjustments to opposing defenses. His comments on Tuesday were his most pointed yet.

Wearing a T-shirt that said ”I (heart) Keeping It Real,” Owens noted that he signed a one-year deal with Cincinnati to improve its passing game and help the defending AFC North champions go deeper into the playoffs. Owens has been productive—he ranks among the league’s top six receivers in catches and yards — but the offense overall is in the bottom third.

”Yeah, my frustration pretty much is at an all-time high,” Owens said…

Can Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco equate wins?

Friday, August 6th, 2010

seth-edward-oneal.jpgOh, in case you didn’t know, Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco will be together in Cincinnati.

Yes, these two huge egos have teamed up to play for the Bengals this upcoming 2010 NFL football season. The biggest question now is, of course, will this be a match made in heaven or hell? Well, that just depends on who you are and what week of the season it is.

One wouldn’t be surprised if the Cincinnati Bengals start showing up on the midseason bust list and is more entertaining for self-destructive incidents than football.

At 36 years old, Terrell Owens is half the player he once was, tallying the least productive season of his career since starting in the league with San Francisco. Optimists and Ohio sports fans looking to bounce back from LeBron James can get excited for this, but with two personalities that big out on the flanks, the odds of this working are slim to none.

Even if T.O. does not end up displaying the same character issues he offered in in Philadelphia and Dallas, career lows across the board are not going to make this a worthwhile signing for the Bengals.

What does T.O bring to the Bengals? One answer is his leadership skills. Sure he’s had his controversial ways, but maybe—just maybe—all of this unconvincing interest this offseason in relation to his free agency may create a new and more warming T.O.

If this doesn’t happen, though, it is also the presence that…

St Louis Rams interested in Terrell Owens?

Monday, July 26th, 2010

seth-edward-oneal.jpgLooks like T.O. might finally have a home.

You read it, the St. Louis Rams have intensified discussions in hopes of signing free agent Terrell Owens for the coming 2010 NFL football season, according to sources close to the player and team.

The Rams asked Terrell Owens through his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, if he would consider a serious contract proposal, even though they are not considered a playoff contender. Rosenhaus told the team Owens would definitely consider it, sources said. A high-ranking Rams official said a formal offer for Owens could come soon.

The St. Louis Rams believe Owens would take heat off their young wide receiver corps that includes Donnie Avery, Laurent Robinson and rookie Mardy Gilyard, as well as loosen up opposing defenses from focusing on running back Steven Jackson.

The Cincinnati Bengals, as reported by ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, are also engaged in talks with Owens. The Bengals signed free-agent receiver Antonio Bryant during the offseason but Bryant has struggled so far. According to a team source, that has motivated the Bengals to take another look at Owens.

One source said the Rams have gotten very aggressive in their pursuit of Owens, however, the Bengals still have given no indication they’re ready to offer a contract. They want to get a good look at their young wide receivers and have five preseason games to do it. They need some of those guys to play special teams.

Chad Ochocinco, Bryant and Owens would not be special teams-type…

Who will take a chance on Terrell Owens?

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

Yep, nobody has… YET.

For the second-consecutive year, Terrell Owens, the notorious wide receiver, is on the market as he remains unsigned with only a couple of months before the 2010 NFL football season begins but according to agent Drew Rosenhaus that will definitely change.

Rosenhaus said that Terrell Owens, who played for the Buffalo Bills last season, will have a new team “within the next few weeks.”

He added that five teams were interested in Owens. However, the San Diego Chargers aren’t one of them, despite Vincent Jackson being suspended three games by the NFL and threatening to hold out over his contact situation. “We’re all set right now with our receivers,” general manager A.J. Smith said in an interview.

The Seattle Seahawks are also out of the picture. “No, you know, I go way back with T.O.,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “I was there [as an assistant coach] when he showed up with the 49ers when he was a rookie and nobody knew he had any initials or anything. And I really liked Terrell. But we won’t be able to do that this time around. I think at our time in our program development, we’re going to continue to work with the guys that we’ve got and go in a different direction than that. We’re really looking to get the young guys going as much as we can.”

Owens said recently that he believed teams are swayed by the perception he’s a troublemaker. It’s a perception he believes he disproved with his agreeable behavior in Buffalo during a disappointing season in 2009.

“There were a number of times where prior I probably would…”

Can Terrell Owens help (or destroy) the Buffalo Bills?

Monday, March 16th, 2009

seth-edward-oneal.jpgYes, they actually took the dive and signed the sonuvabitch.

And while it’s still quite early to determine if Terrell Owens can actually help (likely) or destroy (very likely) the Buffalo Bills since we are still that far away from the 2009 NFL football season, at least people are talking about Buffalo again.

In case you didn’t get that, yes, the Buffalo Bills signed Terrell Owens after the controversial receiver was booted out of Dallas. Buffalo is Owens’ fourth stop after expiring his welcome with three other teams he played with before; the 49ers, the Eagles and the Cowboys. Can the Bills make this T.O. experiment work?

Trent EdwardsWith the Bills signing Terrell Owens, they now have the opportunity to improve their anemic passing game, that is if they can get the controversial wideout and his humongous ego in check.

That responsibility now relies on Bills quarterback Trent Edwards. Who knew that after Edwards endured the most turbulence he had in his career when he was with an ongoing battle with J.P. Losman for the starting QB spot, that he will be welcomed by yet an even bigger one in Terrell Owens.

Edwards will be the fifth quarterback Owens will…

NFL wideouts Terrell Owens and Randy Moss now have something more in common than you might think

Sunday, March 15th, 2009

It is understandable that the Bills’ acquisition of Terrell Owens has generated all sorts of excitement in the league.

Of course, we won’t really know how effective Owens will be until the 2009 NFL football season gets here. But since the Bills will be Owens’ fourth team in what is turning out to be the last days of his aging career, will Owens finally make the most of his dwindling chances for redemption?

One expert, Dr. Harry Edwards, is confident that Terrell Owens, despite his controversial track record, will be a good addition to the city of Buffalo. How? Read on.

”This young man has never had one iota of trouble with women, drugs, Terrell Owens and Randy Mossviolence, anything like that,” Dr. Harry Edwards said. ”You’re not going to get that with Terrell. What you are going to get is the kind of behavior on the field that his generation celebrates. It’s cultural. You’re not going to change it.”

”You just have to manage it. Terrell is not of the same generation as Lynn Swann and Jerry Rice. He is of the generation of Randy Moss.”

Oh yes, Randy Moss.

Two years ago, Randy Moss was in the same situation where…

Terrell Owens signs with Buffalo Bills for 6.5 Million

Monday, March 9th, 2009

seth-edward-oneal.jpgThe city of Buffalo found a way to make people talk about their team.

In case you didn’t know, Terrell Owens will be playing for the Buffalo Bills once the 2009 NFL football season gets here. It was only a matter of time before the Cowboys released Owens after he just kept on going at it with Cowboys team leaders, Tony Romo and Jason Witten, Buffalo gives T.O. a new start and for now, he’s quite happy about it.

”I’m leaving America’s team (for) North America’s team,” Terrell Owens said at a news conference. ”This may not be the most ideal place for a lot of people, but I’m the guy. I beat to my own beat sometimes, my own thinking, my own intuition.”

Contrary to what he said, Terrell Owensthe Dallas Cowboys left him, not the other way around. And I’m not surprised to hear T.O. say ”me” again only days after signing with the team.

While his prior stints in Dallas, Philadelphia and San Francisco all ended badly, Owens is a major upgrade for a Buffalo Bills team seeking more offensive firepower, statistically speaking. Buffalo was already rebuffed earlier this offseason in attempts to sign wide receiver Laveranues Coles and running backs Fred Taylor and Kevin Jones. With the singing of T.O., the Bills will now have two deep threats with Lee Evans coming off one of his best seasons in his career. The question is, can the Bills co-exist with Owens…

Dallas Cowboys release the controversial Terrell Owens

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

seth-edward-oneal.jpgJeez… T.O. just lost yet another team.

The Cowboys will have something new aside from the new arena they’ll be playing in for the 2009-10 NFL football season, a peaceful and tranquil locker room. Well, at least that’s what the Cowboys are hoping now that T.O. is out.

You read it, the Dallas Cowboys released their controversial wide receiver Terrell Owens, ending the T.O. experiment in the same way it ended back in San Francisco and Philadelphia, a sour one.

You see, back when Terrell Owens was fresh from his departure from San Francisco, everybody knew that Owens couldn’t get along with Terrell Owensthen San Francisco 49ers QB Jeff Garcia.

The same thing happened in Philly where he was having a war of words of sorts for almost his entire stay there with Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, leading to yet another expulsion from another team and landing him to Dallas.

It wasn’t that surprising to learn that his stay in Dallas has finally expired. Losing two straight playoff games and living on absolutely nothing but hype will sure lead to that. Of course, feuding with the top two stars of the Dallas Cowboys also helps.

We all knew Owens started accusing Tony Romo and Jason Witten of secretly…

Tony Romo to Terrell Owens or Tony Romo to Jason Witten? Which is better for the Dallas Cowboys?

Tuesday, December 16th, 2008

A win, that’s for sure.

Despite being picked as one of the heavy favorites to win the Super Bowl even before the 2008-09 NFL football season began, the Dallas Cowboys’ playoff bid this year is still uncertain, still needing to win their last two games in Baltimore and Philly to keep their playoff hopes alive.

Last season, my emotions went from the highest of the highs to the lowest of the lows as Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys blew a spectacular season only a few short weeks before the playoffs started.

This season, they’re at it again. After a Dallas Cowboysflawless start to the season, an injury to Tony Romo got the Cowboys struggling. Then star corner Pacman Jones gets banned, reinstated and out again for the season with an injury.

And to make matters worse, Terrell Owens is accusing both Romo and Jason Witten of designing their own plays, leaving him out in the cold.

For now, a win over the defending Super Bowl champions New York Giants last Sunday night should keep these issues within the Cowboys organization from…
