Found August 22, 2012 on The Football Fan Spot:
When the Seahawks signed Terrell Owens, it was certainly a very high profile signing. However, seemingly contrary to popular belief, TO is no lock to make the Seahawks’ roster, especially after a terrible showing in his 1st preseason game, where he didn’t catch a ball on 5 targets and dropped a sure 46 yard touchdown.

NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora seconds this report by saying that Owens is “hardly assured” of a roster spot, according to team sources.

Moss, Owens determined to become dominant again

Randy Moss playfully chased reserve nose tackle Ian Williams toward the locker room after practice and razzed the second-year pro with each step. It was hardly a fair deal, given Moss' stellar speed even at age 35 against the 305-pound Williams. While Moss is having a blast as he begins anew with the 49ers after a year out of football, former San Francisco star Terrell Owens...
