T.O Holds Workout

Updated on October 25, 2011
T.O works out in front of a film crew to audition for all 32 NFL teams.
T.O works out in front of a film crew to audition for all 32 NFL teams.

Terrell Owens held a public workout today at a high school and invited all 32 NFL teams, none of which showed up. T.O and his agent Drew Rosenhaus expected this, which is why they had a film crew on hand to tape the entire session and send the tapes to all the NFL teams around the league.

Owens looked strong and closed fast on the ball in timing routes throughout the session. As he continued to run routes, he started to look tired and winded, which was to be expected. Owens is one of the fastest healers and is always in great shape, so it will take him no time at all to get to where he needs to be.

So what teams make sense to take Owens?

My first pick is the Oakland Raiders. They lack a true number one receiver and with Carson Palmer there now, he would have familiarity with the quarterback playing with him last year in Cincinnati. In the middle of a bye week if they move quickly they would have time to get him in football shape and acclimated to the offense.

Another team would be the San Francisco 49ers. Jim Harbaugh's personality is similar to Owens, both have a lot of passion and heart. It would also be great to see T.O end his career as a 49er. People talk about Alex Smith and how Owens would not be able to work with him, but he did just fine in Buffalo with a sub par Edwards throwing him the football. People tend to give Owens a hard time, but he plays with his heart on his sleeve. He wants to compete and wants to win.

Another team is the Tennessee Titans. The loss of Kenny Britt is killing this offense, along with CJ2K not living up to the contract or expectations the Titans had for him. Owens would give Hasselback a legitimate target and offensive weapon. They took a chance on Randy Moss last season and that didn't pan out, but Moss doesn't play with the heart that Owens does. You know you're going to get 100% out of Owens every time he steps on the field.

My last pick is the Saint Louis Rams. I don't believe this will happen now. Maybe three weeks ago when they still had a shot of winning the division, but not now. The only outside shot would be Steve Spagnola trying to finish the season strong to keep his job and bringing Owens in to help that cause. This is a long shot, but still a possibility.

T.O will go down as one of the greatest receivers of all time and I really think the hype about him being disruptive is overrated. He can help a team on the brink of the playoffs become better instantly. That's why I see the Raiders being a top landing spot for him. We'll see how it all unfolds over the next few days.

      I agree...can't believe he takes so much heat for a controversy primarily with Donovan McNabb, who we all see now doesn't have the work ethic to keep himself in game shape like T.O does. I would insist my QB play and train with the same emotion and intensity that I do. That's the only way you can win in the NFL. T.O. isn't a bad guy, he's just outspoken and wears his heart on his sleeve. Exceptional talent that I would take on my team any day!

      I would take him over many starting wideouts right now. They are acting like they didn't see him in Cincy last season and that was like in 12-13 games. 983 yards and 9 touchdowns, somewhere in that area. He is right when he says "he heals quick". He does, he always has. Imagine him in Green Bay! He needs to go somewhere. He can hang with them.

      The media hates T.O. I love how Bucky Brooks tried to compare T.O's cone drill time to the best time by a rookie at the combine. I mean, there's a 17 year difference between the two players. I'll take T.O's experience and stats and slightly slower cone drill time over a guy that may be faster but has done nothing on the field...I believe the guy Brooks was talking about is on a practice squad right now, or hasn't seen the field much. You take your pick.

      I'd love to see the workout. The question is the knee. One rumor on espn was that he had it covered because it had atrophied so much.

      TO is an incredible physical specimen, but I'm not sure he brings chemistry to a team, although the 49ers and Raiders could use a receiver. He may be better in SF as the replacement for Morgan and Edwards (if he goes down again).
