Found January 01, 2012 on NBC Bay Area:
T.O. is ready, willing, and able to go. Bad bay wide receiver Terrell Owens made a name for himself as a San Francisco 49er, spending eight seasons hauling in passes from the likes of Steve Young and Jeff Garcia. This season Owens, 38, is out of football, but announced on Twitter -- in a sense, anyway -- that he'd like to close out his career back in the Bay with the Niners, who are in a bind at the wide receiver position at the moment. In response to a Tweet from 49ers safety Donte Whitner, Owens's former teammate in 2009 on the Buffalo Bills, Owens wrote "Let em kno if they need me, I'm ready homie!! I'm ready 2 take em deep!!" The 49ers are down to two active wide receivers since releasing Braylon Edwards, who struggled to return to form after injuring his right knee Sept. 18. Owens is also coming off of knee surgery. Owens played on the last 49ers team to make the playoffs in 2002, but it doesn't appear he'll be on the field the next time ...

Ravens O-Line Must Account for Bengals’ Geno Atkins

The sack leaders in the NFL and on most teams are traditionally outside linebackers and defensive ends, but that doesn’t apply to Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins. Atkins, 23, leads the Bengals with eight sacks, which is exactly why the Ravens offensive line won’t be taking the second-year player lightly in Sunday’s regular-season finale. [...]
