Terrell Eldorado Owens last caught an NFL pass on Dec. 12, 2010. He did so for the Cincinnati Bengals against the Pittsburgh Steelers in a 23-7 loss. It was a 22-yarder against one of the NFL's best defenses, and some 37-year-old receivers would consider that a good way to go out. Not T.O., though. After rehabbing a knee injury and entering into a contentious relationship with the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League, Owens finally has the shot he's been waiting for.
The Seattle Seahawks brought Owens into their Renton, Wash., facility on Monday to see what the six-time Pro Bowler had left in the tank. As one source told Shutdown Corner, Owens ran a 4.5-40 in his Seahawks workout, and the team started to talk terms. Per Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, Owens has agreed to a one-year deal with Seattle.
When Shutdown Corner caught up with Owens in early July at Travelle Gaines' training facility in Los Angeles, he seemed relaxed and confident regarding his recovery from injury, and his eventual return to the league.
