The last time we saw Terrell Owens he was trying to latch on with the Seattle Seahawks. He didn't make it but Owens has had lots of time to keep himself in shape with the hope of catching the eye of another NFL team.
A report by David Kaplan from CSNChicago.com says Owens has an eye on the Chicago Bears for a possible comeback. Owens is hoping that his past with Bears coach Marc Trestman will help him get a job in Chicago. Owens has been working out with former NFL linebacker and Illinois State Senator Napoleon Harris.
Owens is reportedly in great shape despite not playing since 2011.
"I played my first early years in San Francisco with [Bears head coach Marc Trestman] and shortly after that, he left to do some things," he said. "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 Napoleon were talking about it earlier, but I would definitely welcome it if they would give it some serious consideration. To think about [Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall] on the other side and me on one side, that's really dangerous. I'm keeping myself in shape just for any opportunity that may come about."
Being in shape has never been a problem for Owens. In the past it's been his mouth and attitude. Nowdays it's his hands that are betraying him.
"The guy was a great player and he is in tremendous physical shape," Harris said. "We worked out this morning and after we ran five miles, he did sprints and lifted and he looks great. The Bears would be smart to give him an opportunity. He is motivated and ready to play."
Even though Owens played in Trestman's system when both were with the San Francisco 49ers, there's no guarantee that Owens will get a call from the Bears coach.
Owens is doing his best to sell himself to the Bears but with Alshon Jeffery looking like he might be ready to come into his own I doubt the Bears will give Owens a chance to prove he has something left to give.

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.

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...

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...
Vegas Here I Come!
The NFL schedules have finally been released. After looking at the Seattle Seahawks‘ path to the Super Bowl, I can say with confidence that this is the year.
The preseason “strength of schedule” rankings have the Hawks at No. 11. The remaining three teams in the NFC West are all in the top 10 – likely because they play us twice.
After rummaging through...

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 first segment of our two-part podcast, we dissect all the on-field action from the three days of Chicago Bears voluntary minicamp, including Devin Hester's new role on the team, Jay Cutler's footwork, the starters in the trenches and much more.
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...
