If any NFL team out there needs a receiver, it sounds like Terrell Owens would be willing to play.
In what basically has become an annual off-season tradition, Owens claimed that he could still play if a team would actually sign him.
Maybe it’s just me, but it kind of feels like Owens is completely overlooking the fact that he’s 43 and hasn’t played a down in the NFL in nearly seven years, which are two things that tend to be red flags when a team is out looking for a free agent.
Owens, who was selected by the 49ers during the third round of the 1996 NFL Draft, says that if a team decides to sign him, they’ll get a speedy receiver who doesn’t need to be an every-down player.
Owens hasn’t played in a regular season game since 2010 when he played for the Bengals.
