If the New York Jets are still looking at options at wide receiver, Terrell Owens believes he'd be an upgrade. Owens, who spent part of training camp with the Seattle Seahawks, said via Twitter during Monday's loss to the Houston Texans that he's ready if the Jets call. "Hey JETS!!! I'm available! I'm ready, willing & able! Call my agent@JordanWoy & let's make it happen," Owens wrote. Coach Rex Ryan said last week that street free agents such as Owens, Plaxico Burress and Chad Johnson weren't viable options for the team in filling Santonio Holmes' spot on the roster. The Jets signed Jason Hill, and Ryan said they'd continue to seek youth at the position rather than marquee names with more NFL miles logged. On Tuesday's media conference call, Ryan said he'll "never say never" when asked about adding a player like T.O., who has 1,078 career receptions and 153 touchdowns. He's also 38 years old and last played in a regular-season game in the NFL in 2010 with the Cincinnati Bengals. The Jets aren't interested, according to New York Daily News columnist Gary Myers, citing sources, who then joked that the team had a better chance of bringing back Don Maynard.
