Terrell Owens spent some time out in Los Angeles, Calif., working out with Tom Brady earlier this offseason, and it just so happens he would be interested in playing for the Patriots. Owens caught some passes from Brady at USC in early April and, like almost any intelligent NFL player, would want to play with Brady and the Patriots full time, according to BlindsideFootball.com. “I think that’s a no-brainer,” Owens said. “You look at what they’ve done over the years. Under the tutelage of Tom and Coach [Bill] Belichick, I think the sky would be the limit in terms of what I’d be able to do. Considering my body of work and my history of playing the game.” Owens also revealed that his training session with Brady was more of a coincidence rather than the well-thought-out plan it appeared to be. “We happened to be on the same field at the same time and it obviously created a big buzz with the two of us being on the field throwing the football around,” Owens said. “There was really nothing organized about it as far as me trying to get with the Patriots or him pursuing me or anything like that. It just happened to be us being out there on the same field at the same time.” The six-time Pro Bowl receiver has not played a game in the NFL for two seasons now, but he does still believe he can play at the highest level. The Patriots did have a glaring need at wide receiver earlier this offseason, but a strong draft at the position seems to have solved that issue. So, even if Owens is capable of returning to that All-Pro form, it’s unlikely Belichick is looking to add another receiver to the mix right now. Plus, Owens has a newly established pro bowling career to attend to — and with scores like this, he’ll need to give it his undivided attention. Have a question for Luke Hughes?
