When receiver Braylon Edwards was surprisingly released by the 49ers Tuesday, some thought his spot might be filled by a veteran presence for the January playoff push.
One certain free agent, who originally got his big break in the Bay Area, has already volunteered for the job.
On Wednesday, veteran wideout Terrell Owens expressed an interest in returning to the Niners, tweeting to former teammate and current San Fran safety Donte Whitner that he’s willing to lend his services to the team.
“Let em kno if they need me, I’m ready homie!! I’m ready 2 take em deep!!” Owens tweeted.
T.O. and Whitner spent the 2009 season together with the Bills, to whom Whitner was conveying his well wishes after another disappointing year.
