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.
