OWENS TRAINED FOR THE FIRST TIME WITH SEATTLE
Fri, 10 Aug 2012 02:30 AM EDT

As he bolted off the line of scrimmage, Terrell Owens tried to “shock release” stout cornerback Brandon Browner by crashing into the defender then disengaging and breaking into the open.

Browner, who was a Pro Bowler last year for Seattle, wasn’t having any of it. He declined to let Owens free and rode the pass catcher with the 2nd-most receiving touchdowns in NFL history hard into the turf.

“I was just extra excited to be going up against him,” Browner later said.

Owens returned to an NFL practice field for the 1st time since late in the 2010 season on Wednesday when he jogged onto the field at Seahawks’ headquarters about 10:15 am, with a cluster of media waiting to document each move the 5-time All-Pro and now-38-year-old made on his first day back in the NFL.

There were highlights – a long catch down the sideline during one team drill. There were also humbling moments when he couldn’t break loose of Browner and got a facemask full of grass.

Between, Owens, who spoke softly before the massive crowd after practice, was gracious about the opportunity he was getting with the Seahawks. Football betting lines

“It’s all about for me now being part of something rather than being the centre of something. I understand a lot of the media is here because of me and again, I have changed in lots of ways,” Owens said. “A lot of things have occurred in the last 2 years, and I’ve had a lot of time to contemplate things and put things in perspective and I just desire to go forward and leave all the things that occurred 5 to 10 years ago behind me. That’s where I am mentally.”

Owens is the most recent reclamation project being taken on by Seattle coach Pete Carroll, who has found achievement in his 1st 2 seasons with the likes of Browner, Mike Williams and Red Bryant – players once considered on the way out of the league who instead have prospered with the Seahawks.

Whether Owens ends up making a difference will depend upon if he makes the team. If his 1st practice is any indication, Owens at least has an opportunity.

Notwithstanding age showing its sign on his once youthful face, Owens is in tremendous shape. He’s long and lean, fitting the outlines given by Carroll and other Seahawks staff following Owens’ workout for the team on Monday. He worked generally with the No. 2 offense on his 1st day at flanker and opposite fellow 2nd-opportunity receiver Braylon Edwards. The beginning flanker position belongs to Sidney Rice, but he’s being withheld from contact during training camp as he continues getting over offseason surgery on both shoulders.

Owens spent the whole 2011 season out of football, left to re- evaluate his career choices following surgery on his left knee. His comeback started this spring playing for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League. He had 35 catches for 420 yards and 10 touchdowns while playing 8 of 11 games, but was released and lost a possession stake in the team in May.
