Via No Guts, No Glory:

Pete Carroll faced the media for the first time Tuesday since cutting Terrell Owens and everyone in the room was curious about the circumstances surrounding Owens’ release.

One media member attempted to ask Carroll about the report of Owens’ bad attitude while in camp, but Carroll would have none of it. He quickly interrupted and defended Owens’ attitude and play in camp. In fact, Carroll went on to say that Owens was “terrific” and he “wouldn’t hesitate” to resign Owens if the receiver becomes a need later in the season.

“Anybody that thinks he had an attitude around here or something like that got in the way is wrong,” Carroll said. “They don’t know what they’re talking about.

“This guy was great. He did everything we wanted him to do. He practiced hard, he studied hard, he asked questions, he worked hard in the games. He did everything. He was terrific.”

“He’s got the competitive makeup to do it, he’s physically beautifully fit for a guy of his years, and I’ll be surprised if he doesn’t wind up in somebody’s camp and playing for somebody.”

Physically beautifully fit? Simmer down there, Pete.

Carroll went on to say that the decision was made to release Owens because the younger receivers were a better fit in Seattle.

Owens at least has one thing going for him these days. He now has multiple people that are willing to vouch for his attitude and play. Which may help him catch on with another team.
