Earning His Wings? Free Agent WR Terrell Owens To “Meet” With The Seattle Seahawks
- Updated: August 5, 2012
Update: According to ESPN’s Ed Werder the Seahawks and Owens are “engaged in contract talks” after his Monday workout.
After releasing WR Mike Williams who was coming off an injury, and then signing veteran Antonio Bryant and shortly releasing him, the Seattle Seahawks are in desperate need of wide receiver help.
Have they reached the ultimate phase of desperation? With recently signing Braylon Edwards, the Seahawks now have Sidney Rice, Edwards, and Doug Baldwin as their feature three.
According to @Softykjr free agent and future Hall Of Fame vocal wide receiver Terrell Owens is set to meet with the Seahawks, although no word has been said whether Owens is just meeting with the team or will get a contract/tryout.
The biggest question to this situation is not just why but who? As in who will throw Owens or Rice, Baldwin, and Edwards for that matter the ball? While normally quarterback competition comes down to two quarterbacks, Seattle has a rookie making a case for his own, Russell Wilson. So between Matt Flynn, Tavaris Jackson, or Wilson, who will be under center to get the ball to these receivers?
One thing to note, Edwards is very famous for lack of focus, dropped passes, and even injuries. Rice has a history of injuries himself and Baldwin is an under-sized receiver and although productive Owens may be the big threat Seattle needs.
Owens’ ranks second on all time receiving yards list, sixth in career receptions, and second in touchdowns. While he has the numbers to prove his great field career, his attitude has gotten him downplayed throughout the NFL.
With the negativity being known, it should also be known that any good production from Terrell Owens is better than production from most NFL wide receivers. Whether or not this is a way to get more money (he came out recently and cried broke) or a chance to revive his career, only Owens truly knows.
