Terrell Owens is still looking for a job. Since their passing game is one of the worst in the NFL and they recently lost Santonio Holmes for the season, it’s safe to say the Jets are in need of help at receiver. Earlier this week, T.O. sent out a tweet letting the Jets know he is willing and able to help if they are interested in his services. “Hey JETS!!! I’m available!” Owens wrote. “I’m ready, willing and able! Call my agent and let’s make it happen.” Many saw that as a desperation move from T.O., who has struggled financially over the past couple of years and is not ready to call it a career. The former Seahawk says he was simply trying to do the Jets a favor. “It’s not begging for a job when you know you can still play at a high level, given the opportunity,” Owens said during an interview with TSN on Wednesday. “When you have a defensive back playing offense and running routes, I think that’s more desperate than my actual tweet itself.” That defensive back happens to believe he is the best receiver and cornerback on New York’s roster now that Darrelle Revis and Holmes are out for the year. Regardless of what T.O. wants us to believe, he’s plenty desperate. The Jets could certainly use help at receiver, but it’s safe to assume the out-of-work 39-year-old who hasn’t played in a regular season game since 2010 needs a job a bit more than they need to give him one.
