Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks continue their quest to bring in as many over the hill wide receivers as possible, as Terrell Owens is reportedly headed to the Pacific Northwest for a tryout.
As reported by Mike Florio of PFT.com, Owens is heading to Seattle for what is assumed to be a tryout. Florio writes: For now, it’s just a visit. It’s unknown whether Owens is getting a tryout or signing a contract. Given that the Seahawks run the West Coast offense under coordinator Darrell Bevell, it’s actually a good fit, from an X-and-O standpoint. Owens knows the offense; the question is whether he can still run.”
Fantasy owners should not jump the gun and draft Owens, however, if he does make the team he could end up being an interesting late round pick in deepest of deep leagues.
At one point in his career, Owens was one of the most dominant offensive weapons in the league. Unfortunately, time and a slew of off-field issues has relegated Owens to nothing more than a side-show.
