NFL Injury Report:
Terrell Owens continues to seek out another opportunity to
play in the NFL, and his latest bid is to join the Chicago Bears. Owens has a
distant tie to new Bears head coach Marc Trestman that he’s hoping could work
its way into a contract, according to CSN Chicago.
"I played my first early years in San Francisco with
and shortly after that, he left to do some things," Owens told Comcast
SportsNet Chicago's David Kaplan on Friday. "I haven't talked to Marc in a
long while. I know he's gone on and done some things, now he's back in the NFL.
So, I never really thought about it until myself and (former linebacker)
Napoleon (Harris) were talking about it earlier, but I would definitely welcome
it if they would give it some serious consideration.”
Owens admits that he hasn’t spoken with Trestman for a long
time, and his connection with the new head coach is that they were with the San
Francisco 49ers for one year. Owens was a rookie wide receiver and Trestman was
the offensive coordinator.
This is an extremely unlikely scenario, as all of this has
been generated by T.O. The Bears haven’t been tied to the veteran wide receiver
at all, and it doesn’t seem like a situation that would appeal to a rookie head

The odds that Terrell Owens will get another shot in the NFL get slimmer by the year.
With each new draft class of youngsters that come in with solid hands and speed to burn, Owens looks less and less like a viable option.
His ability as one of the league’s greatest pure route runners is over-shadowed by past incidents which have caught up with him.
Take all of that and factor...
When Terrell Owens talks, people listen. Maybe it is because he is a little on the self-absorbed side and tends to say the wrong thing a lot. Maybe it is because he is learning and actually speaks with wisdom sometimes. Or maybe it is because the man is still an incredible athlete and will go down as one of the greatest wide receivers whether he plays the game again or not.
It is a 95% chance that T.O. is never going to play in the NFL again, but he hasn’t given up the dream. He is trying to exploit any and all past relationships, to get one more shot.
This time he wants his old coach in San Francisco to reach out to him. Pro Football Zone has the quotes.
“I played my first early years in San Francisco with [Bears head coach Marc Trestman] and shortly...
How many people here watch True Blood?
I admit, I’m a little embarrassed to say I watch the show. But it sure was entertaining when it started. And wow, did that show eventually go off the rails. I mean, I can buy that some random old vampire in a made up town called Bon Temps would fancy some girl named Sookie that can read minds. Heck, her name is Sookie...

Owens, still looking to catch on with a team,feels he can be productive in Chicago and expressed interest in teaming up with Brandon Marshall.

Brian Urlacher played for the Chicago Bears since 2000, and is a team leader in most of the relevant defensive stats.He was the backbone of the Chicago defense for years, and now he is no more.If Urlacher decides to play for another team, I am sure he will find one willing to give him a chance.To make a complicated story simple, Urlacher felt he did not want to play for the Bears...
1. Inside Linebacker: With Urlacher gone, Chicago needs someone else to man middle linebacker position. They will probably take one with their first or second round pick. Alec Ogletree looks like he might be there for them with the 20th overall pick.
2. Offensive Tackle: Despite being a major need, Chicago probably won't address this until the later rounds. This is because...
Terrell Owens is 39 years old and hasn’t played a regular season NFL game in two full years, but he’s still hoping to latch on in the NFL — with the Chicago Bears specifically.
Owens was in Chicago recently to participate in a charity basketball game and spent some time working out with NFL linebacker turned Illinois State Senator Napoleon Harris. Owens thinks his history with...
Citing a desire to reunite with head coach Marc Trestman, loathsome wide receiver Terrell Owens told CSN Chicago he wants to comeback as a Bear. Owens, who was comically fired by the iconic Allen Wranglers last spring for a “lack of effort both on and off the field,” hasn’t competed in an NFL regular season contest since suffering a torn ACL in April 2011. “I played my first...

In the sixth installment of our Chicago Bears Voluntary Minicamp video series, we bring you the defensive linemen bag drills, orchestrated by D-line coach Mike Phair.
The Chicago Bears wrapped up their three day mini-camp on Thursday with their final practice and one of the lessons learned was a sneak peek at the new rushing attack being implemented. New offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer is in charge of design and coordination of the running game, and he's bringing in a new zone-blocking scheme that runs both inside and outside zone blocking...
In the eighth installment of our Chicago Bears voluntary minicamp video series, we focus on second-year safety Brandon Hardin.
It seems like such a simple question, but no one can provide a definitive answer.
In free agency, the Bears did quite a bit in terms of addressing some of their most glaring needs. The offensive tackle, tight end, and linebacker positions were all upgraded.
But with the NFL Draft less than a week away, predictions are still all over the board for who the Bears may take with the 20th...
