TERRELL OWENS CONFIRMED HIS DISMISSAL FROM SEAHAWKS
Tue, 28 Aug 2012 03:51 PM EDT

Owens was released by the Seattle Seahawks, part of the league-mandated list reductions from 90 to 75 players.

The 38-year-old receiver wasn’t the only vet to be cut by the Seahawks. Offensive linemen Deuce Lutui and Alex Barron both had their veteran contracts terminated, while Seattle Seahawks waived / injured defensive back Roy Lewis (knee), tight end Cameron Morrah (toe), DT Pep Levingston (knee) and linebacker Jamison Konz (shoulder).

Owens agreed a one-year handle Seattle (No. 22 in APPro32) on August 7, following a sterling workout that had coaches and Seahawks staff raving off about how good he looked for having not played an NFL game in more than 18 months.

”We really liked the group that we assembled. Terrell came in here and busted his tail and he looked really effective right from the start,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll declared. ”But as we just took a glance at our guys that are coming through the program and growing up with us we believed that it would be the best for us to remain with those guys.”

Owens signed just before Seattle’s 1st preseason game and made his debut in the 2nd week against Denver. But his preseason performance was more notable for the passes he dropped than anything he caught.

Owens dropped a potential 46-yard touchdown against Denver on an ideal throw from Matt Flynn. He did not make a catch in any of his five targets against the Broncos and then had another noticeable drop against Kansas City.

He finished the preseason with only 2 receptions – a 40-yard catch from Russell Wilson where Owens had to slow down and lean back to haul in the pass and a 1-yard reception on a screen.

For as impressive as his long catch was in Seattle’s 44-14 win over the Kansas City Chiefs, it served as Owens’ only highlight in a Seahawks uniform. NFL betting lines

Owens was trying to make a comeback after not playing since Week 15 of the 2010 season while with Cincinnati Bengals. He sat out the entire 2011 season following surgery on his left knee and failed to receive any offers.

Owens got the rust off this spring playing for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League. He had Thirty five catches for 420 yards and 10 touchdowns while playing eight of 11 games, but was released and lost an ownership percentage in the team in May.

Owens, a 3-round draft choice by San Francisco in 1996, has started 201 of the 219 regular-season NFL games he has played in his career. He has 1,078 receptions for 15,934 yards and 153 touchdowns – the 2nd most in league history.

His 9 seasons with at least 1,000 yards receiving and 13 years with at least 50 catches rank 3rd. His total receptions are 6th on the NFL career list. Owens spent 8 seasons with San Francisco, 2 with Philadelphia, and 3 with Dallas before a pair of one year stints with Buffalo and Bengals.

Among Seattle’s other cuts to reach the 75-man limit were WR Phil Bates, RB Tyrell Sutton, cornerbacks Ron Parker and Donny Lisowski and offensive lineman Edawn Coughman.
