Yesterday, the Bills agreed to a one-year, $6.5 million contract with Terrell Owens, in a move that has some scratching their heads. From a football standpoint, the move makes sense for Buffalo. Owens provides some punch to a Bills offense that offers little in explosiveness.
Granted, Owens’ skills are clearly on the decline. Yet, does that make him unworthy of fitting in with a team that ranked 22nd in passing last season? Not in the least.
He’ll be a factor in the passing game in September, October and of November. However, when Thanksgiving hits and the weather changes, how will the Bills and head coach Dick Jauron deal with him if he’s unhappy?
Back in the late 80s and early 90s when the Bills were offensive machine, they had three Hall of Famers on offense to deal with inclimate conditions.
Trent Edwards, the troubled Marshawn Lynch, and Lee Evans aren’t exactly Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, James Lofton, and Andre Reed. Nonetheless, it gives Buffalo some much needed star power…and a potential headache if they don’t find a way to compete for a playoff spot.
