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 in a murky preseason with Seattle in 2012 in which his penchant for dropping balls stepped it up a notch.

So, its time for the third annual Terrell Owens hopefully-I-can-get-somebody’s-attention-in-the-front-office press junket.

This year’s primary target?

The Chicago Bears.

  • I can not bear the thought of the Bears employing Owens. However, if Terrell would agree to paying the Bears for the priviledge to play again in the NFL while duct taping his mouth then things might work out.
  • Why do you keep peddeling this low tier crap.Go help your mom
  • T.O. needs to realize one thing. He had some talent a few years back but he wasted his legacy with his antics. No one cares whether he plays another down or not.

    This is a cancer to any team.

    If he has truly changed his ways; he needs to sign at the rookie minimum with incentives to include, no arrests, no drug use, no temper tantrums etc. There is one other thing, if he has an episode, he is through with the team and the contract is void. He will produce a Bond to reimburse the team if he has a meltdown.

    If he is now a team player, he will do the things a team player does.

    He will need to learn that he is not the team. There are 10 other guys on the field wearing the same uniform.

    There are less troublesome players available. T.O. needs to know this and accept this. Will this happen, I doubt it.




  • T.O. stands for To Old
  • Who's Old?
  • I wish this cancer would just go away. He is a talented cancer but a cancer non the less.
  • I like how Terrell Owens thinks not only will the NFL give him another shot, that he can pick and choose which team to play for.
  • Ohhh HELL NO! If there was ever an opposite attitude for the Bears, he is it! Go away already dude and get the hell away from my (our) team! We don't need you, Jeffery on the otherside of the field is like a mimic of Marshall. Does someone have any ointment for this bad T.O. rash that keeps coming back?
  • Some guys just aren't meant to be around. The loud mouthed prima donnas in the NFL who practiced hubris in their heyday should all be sitting on the sideline. Payback is a MF. The game is about football (lingerie ball by today's standards) and not about them.
  • He needs to go away
  • Give him a chance to prove his worth, DA Bears could use some help to reach the Big Game.
  • Two Words: Washington Redskins

    One Name: Mike Shanahan

    One Question: Why

    One Answer: Just Do it!
  • Hey, Terrell, Baby; just change your position to QUARTERBACK and Rex "IDIOT" Ryan will bring you in to compete vs Mark Sackchez and Tim Teblows. Lie to the Jets and tell 'em you were a QB all thru High School, College and the 49ers turned you into a wide receiver. Bill Romanowski taught you how to SPIT on your opponents. Yep, I'd say you are READY for the NFL qb position.
    GO Jets NOT
  • Hey T. O.,The first time you opened your big mouth you should have been banned from the game,your a douchebag,go jump off a cliff!
  • T.O. - you had your moment in the Lights . Now please - GO AWAY !!
  • I think T.O. would be a great with the Bears. He's in perfect shape to run Gatorade out to the real fotball players during timeouts!
  • Just like a leopard that can't change his spots, so goes T.O. What makes anyone (sucker) believe that he would be a valuable addition to an NFL franchise? The first time he was open and didn't get thrown to, all hell would break loose the next time he left the field. Who does he think he is? Why should anyone put up with that idiocy? My guess is that he needs a contract to pay all the alimony and child support that his exes are due. Sorry T.O, in addition to being Too Old, you're Totally Obsolete!
  • Stop calling him a cancer because that is a serious disease and I don't like that word. Everybody deserve another chance.
  • Be quiet
  • Your mom's a cancer.
  • Sign him up with the Patriots! Brady needs another target. Terrell can be bought cheap! Terrell can be the Moss of 2013!

    If there is any gas left in Terrell's tank, let the Pat's burn it up!
  • "Terrell Owens wants to play for the Chicago Bears"

    Play what, a violin?
  • he burnt a lot of bridges during & after his philly stint
  • Sad human being.....assuming he IS human.

Wilbon angry at DC for not supporting Wizards

The Washington Wizards are out to a fast start with an 18-6 record and 13-2 at home. With this record, you’d fans would be flocking to the Verizon Center to support their team. However, on Friday against the Los Angeles Clippers, the attendance was well short of a sellout and that has ESPN’s Michael Wilbon seeing red. Wilbon called out DC fans during an appearance on Tony Kornheiser’s...

Urban Meyer on Tim Tebow: 'He wants another shot at playing'

Tim Tebow hasn’t played professional football in nearly two years, but the former Florida quarterback, unsurprisingly, wants another shot.  The current ESPN college football analyst was in Columbus on Wednesday, speaking to his former coach’s College Football Playoff-bound team. During his visit with No. 4 Ohio State, Tebow spent some time with Urban Meyer. The 50-year-old...

Keenan Lewis: Saints preparing 'funeral' for Falcons

This Sunday, NFC South rivals New Orleans Saints (6-8) and Atlanta Falcons (5-9) will battle for a potential division title. A game that could eliminate Atlanta from playoff contention with a loss. Saints’ cornerback Keenan Lewis had a rather morbid and blunt take on the upcoming game (via NFL.com). We’re definitely gonna give them their funeral. Even though Lewis seems...

Report: Lakers offered Nash, draft picks for Rondo

It reportedly will take a rather hefty offer to convince the Boston Celtics to part ways with Rajon Rondo. This one probably won’t get the job done. The Los Angeles Lakers have offered the Celtics a package of point guard Steve Nash and “multiple draft picks” in exchange for Rondo, sources told ESPN.com’s Ramona Shelburne on Thursday. Rondo obviously would help the flailing...

Celtics co-owner: 2024 Olympics would be 'boon for Beantown'

Bringing the 2024 Summer Olympics to Boston would be “transformative” and would “set the course for what we want our city and the commonwealth to look like for decades to come,” the co-chair of Boston’s 2024 finance committee writes.   Stephen Pagliuca, better known around Boston as co-owner and managing partner of the Celtics, wrote an article posted on BankerandTradesman...

Harbaugh turned down Michigan money in 2011

Whether Jim Harbaugh is actually interested in the Michigan job or not, it would simply be bad business for him to come out and say he will not be the next head coach of the Wolverines. If nothing else, Harbaugh can use Michigan’s desperation as leverage. There have already been reports that Harbaugh wants to...Read More

Why the Saints pose a legit threat to any playoff team

Does the NFC South deserve to have a team in the playoffs?  I may be in the minority (Brady Quinn agrees with me http://www.footballbyfootball.com/column/nfc-south-is-rising-no-playoff-change-needed), but I believe it does.  Every team sets goals during training camp and one of those goals is to win the division. Therefore, a division title has to mean something.  It means you’ve...

Matt Kemp reportedly has arthritis in both hips

So, that huge Matt Kemp trade between the Dodgers and Padres? Yeah…it might not happen. The typically symbolic physical may actually present a huge problem for the Padres, because it’s revealed that Kemp has arthritis in both of his hips. The holdup in Matt Kemp trade is because the physical revealed arthritis in both hips. The #Padres continue to consult medical experts...

Danny Ainge: Celtics 'having a lot of discussions' about trades
