Terrell Owens Says He’d Definitely Be Open To Playing For Patriots

During an interview with a Boston radio station, free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens stated “he’d definitely be open” to playing for the New England Patriots.

Owens went on to tell WJMN in Boston that he was more than willing to pull a LeBron James and take less money (along with a reduced role) to play with Tom Brady, Randy Moss, Wes Welker, and company.

Even if Welker is on the physically unable to perform list to start out the regular season, I can’t see Owens getting into the mix there.

The Patriots already have a transition in leadership on the team and putting Owens in that locker room could be like striking a match in a room filled with gasoline – it would not end well.

The reality is simple. Owens is still unemployed as we approach training camp. This vision of joining New England is simply a pie in the sky idea and seemingly would not work.

When asked earlier today, former Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi said if Owens joins the Pats, he would go into his driveway and start doing situps like T.O. did prior to the 2005 season.

Bruschi is right. It’s a far-fetched idea and not a good one.

  1. Great blog you got over here. Do you think that TO can smarten up if someone decides to take a chance on him? I think that TO has the stuff to still be a quality contributor to a team, but I guess no one wants to take a chance on his maturity and all that baggage he has. He is still obviously talented but just doesn’t quite have that same gear that he used to which made him so good. I think he would fit well as a #3 guy somewhere if he was willing to take it and he is willing to.

    Also, you think you could check out my blog cuz I really want to hear your opinion on my thoughts. http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2010/07/16/unemployed-and-desperate/

    • Here’s the problem with T.O….he’s not a winning ballplayer. His teams get to the playoffs but almost never do anything. He only managed to get to the Super Bowl with Eagles and even that, he missed the two prior playoff games leading up to the Bowl. People aren’t going to put up with that headache when the end result is likely to be a disappointing one. That’s difference between him and Moss. Moss’ teams are far better yearly performers because of him. TO doesn’t have quite the same impact. Thanks for checking out the blog!
