Could it be?
Prior to the Patriots 38-20 beat down against the Philadelphia Eagles, Drew Rosenhaus was seen on the Patriots sideline. Earlier Sunday, Rosenhaus said that one team is very interested in his client — Terrell Owens.
Is it a coincidence that Rosenhaus roamed the New England sideline? Or could Owens join the Patriots?
Last season Owens played in 14 games for the Cincinnati Bengals where he caught 72 passes and nine touchdowns. If the 37-year-old outside threat wasn’t coming off a big knee injury then the Patriots would be stupid to not give him a look.
But, the problem remains: he’s coming off a knee injury.
Owens would bring more to the table than what Chad Ochocinco (11 catches) has done so far this season, but it’s still too risky of a move in my eyes.
The Patriots are really lacking the big play receiver and T.O. would bring that element to this team. With Ochocinco still on the team, I think he will still get another shot to be the deep threat. But, I ask, if there’s any truth to this rumor why not take another look at Randy Moss?
Moss hasn’t had a serious knee injury and he’s only 34. He is a freak athlete that knows the system and wants to win a Super Bowl.
If the Patriots want to make a serious run at a Super Bowl then they will need to fix this problem. If Ochocinco doesn’t step up against the leagues worst team this Sunday don’t be surprised if T.O. gets a call from Bill Belichick.
