With Terrell Owens now one of the most sought out free agents during the offseason, the question that needs to be asked is what team will sign the talented wide receiver. We all know that Owens #81, brings a lot of baggage to any team, but what never changes is the amount of dedication and hard work Terrell Owens brings to the football field night in and night out. Through the course of the 2009-2010 NFL season, Owens seemed to have a slow decline in stats as the Buffalo Bill’s #1 wideout only posted 55 receptions totaling 829 Yards with 5 touchdowns. Even with these types of numbers, Terrell Owens is still considered a top 5 receiver in the AFC. Due to the wide receiver’s “nack” for the ball and extreme determination to get to the “end zone“, no NFL team can ever take #81 for granted.
Now that Terrell Owens is a free agent before the start of the 2010 NFL season, what team is willing to give Owens a chance? A big rumor was rising that #81 was going to the Cincinnati Bengals along side Mr. Ocho Cinco (formerly known as Chad Johnson). With the Bengals signing the talented wide receiver Antonio Bryant to a 4-year deal, the possibility of Terrell Owens going to the Bengals changes dramatically. We can, however, still consider Owens as an option for Cincinnati, although there is now a slim chance that it could happen.
In regards to Terrell Owen’s old team the Dallas Cowboys, there were also rumors that Terrell Owens might come back to his former team. Judging from the awful past relationship of Owens and the Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, this rumor seems to just be water under the bridge and hardly unlikely.
In terms of the Bills, it is almost guaranteed that Terrell Owens will not be coming back to Buffalo. As everyone knows, Owens loves the football. Even with the changes to the Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator position, whom will most likely dedicate in providing Owens the football, #81 does not look like he will be returning back with the team.
Another franchise in the mix is the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders have been very bad for many consecutive seasons and is trying to do anything to change the team’s future around. This rumor might also have no power behind it, but you just never know with the Oakland Raiders.
Every NFL team knows what they will be receiving if they were to sign Terrell Owens. Due to the the wide receiver’s past reputation of being a nuisance to each team he has played for, many teams now before signing the wide out, take this into consideration. If you want the truth, Terrell Owens will always want the ball, but he has been known to drop many footballs come his way as well. Unless Owens can change his outlook on the game, such as the New England wide receiver Randy Moss, then #81 will always be considered a receiver who possessed a great talent, but never accomplished much.
At the end of the day, BLOG SURFACE believes Terrell Owens will end up with the Cincinnati Bengals. With the team releasing WR Laveranues Coles, in addition to the loss of Chris Henry last season, they will need to keep that talented wide receiver group stable. Also, by losing to the New York Jets in the playoffs this past season, it is almost a “must” sign for the Bengals to get back to the same situation they had last year. It would be a total surprise for Owens to go to a bad team in the Raiders or even connect back with his dreadful past with the Cowboys. Even with the acquisition of Antonio Bryant, Terrell Owens will be signed by the Cincinnati Bengals and will be a starting wide receiver for the team come the 2010-2011 NFL season.
