After reports surfaced that Terrell Owens was trying out with the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, a lot of people weighed in on whether or not Terrell still “had it.” Well, we will soon find out because he just signed a 1-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks.
From The Washington Post
Terrell Owens is back in the NFL, with the Seattle Seahawks betting that they’ll see playmaking and not petulance from the wide receiver.
Owens, who is 38 and has not caught a pass in the league since Dec. 12, 2010, signed a one-year contract reportedly worth $1 million. It’s a deal that is, financially, low-risk. It’s the other stuff that T.O. brings that could be a problem.
“I know how the business works,” he said. “I’m just hoping that someone can give me a chance. I’m just going to continue to work hard, training camp is going to come up here pretty soon, there are going to be injuries, and things of that nature. I know that there are some teams that need a veteran receiver — whether it’s a No. 1, 2 or 3 — I feel like I can fill all those voids.”
On Monday night he tweeted: “God is good. Thankful. Grateful. To ALL my new teammates & the “12th Man”… Let’s Do This!!”
