EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. No NFL team has taken a chance on high-maintenance receiver Terrell Owens since he was a training camp cut last season by the Seattle Seahawks, with his last regular-season action coming in 2010 with the Cincinnati Bengals.
That's not keeping Owens from seeing potential fits with teams in the NFL.
During an appearance on NFL Network's "NFL AM" on Wednesday, Owens said he could see himself fitting in with a team that runs a West Coast offense, specially naming the Minnesota Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs as possibilities. Owens, 39, has 1,078 catches, 15,934 receiving yards and 156 touchdowns in his 15-year career, but has worn out his welcome in several NFL stops.
As for those fits in the NFL? Owens said he hasn't heard from another team since being cut by Seattle.
"Nothing as of right now," Owens said on during his appearance on NFL Network. "So, I understand the process. Obviously teams are really taking a closer look in evaluating their younger players. Being a free agent, I understand that later in the months as training camp starts, they'll start looking for veterans."
Owens, with Hall of Fame-type numbers, reportedly said last week that he would retire if he isn't signed in 2013.
The Vikings have already altered their receiving corps dramatically in the offseason by trading another discontented receiver in Percy Harvin, signing Greg Jennings and drafting Cordarrelle Patterson in the first round. Owens reportedly has a good relationship with Minnesota wide receivers coach George Stewart.
Owens' former coach in Philadelphia, Andy Reid, is now the coach in Kansas City.
Of course, Owens can find all the potential fits he wants in the NFL, his return will also be dependent on another team feeling the same way, which so far hasn't happened.
"It's all politics," Owens said. "I think a lot of it has to do with my reputation, things that I've done early in my career. I'm a changed person. I'm a bit more mature than I was in years past, and I think if anybody out there can look past that and look what I can bring to the team than some of the things that happened in the past, I can look past it and maybe they could, and I could go in and help a team develop some of those younger guys."

Enigmatic receiver Terrell Owens says the Vikings and Chiefs are ideal fits for him because of coaching relationships he has on those teams. The Vikings, meanwhile, don’t seem likely to reciprocate the interest.
Antoine Winfield had no reason to suspect anything was amiss when he headed to the Minnesota Vikings' practice facility to work out back in March.
It was a routine Winfield had repeated countless times during his nine seasons in Minnesota. The last thing the three-time Pro Bowl cornerback expected was for Vikings general manager Rick Spielman to call him upstairs and tell him...
