During a recent media tour, free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens expressed interest in playing for the New England Patriots in 2010. T.O, in an effort to dispel misconceptions about past behavior, said he would be willing to take on less money and a smaller role with a championship contender, which would prove that he’s not all about money and receptions.
“People think that they have that perception about me. What receiver that’s out there that’s had great stats, great careers that didn’t want the ball? I’m no different. But of course, I mean, you’ve got [Tom] Brady there. You’ve got the great mind, Coach [Bill] Belichick.
It appears that Owens is looking for a team with credentials, like the Patriots. He has essentially made enemies of sorts elsewhere, as he said he won’t consider working with Kansas City. Owens is still at odds with coach Todd Haley after their time together in Dallas.
T.O. could have left the praise for New England at that and seen if they were interested, but he added,
“I’m like LeBron. I can go there and take less of a role, take less money and put everything aside and make it work.”
So basically, Owens is comparing himself to an overly nauseating display of narcissism. That’s kind of the reason he can’t seem to find work with ease nowadays. That, and his production has been declining annually for years now. He MIGHT be some kind of interesting backup for Wes Welker, but probably not.
Keep dreaming about work, T.O. I have a hunch you’ve run out your welcome.
