TERRELL OWENS RETURNS TO THE NFL WITH SEATTLE
Thu, 09 Aug 2012 02:30 AM EDT

Terrell Eldorado Owens last caught an NFL pass on Dec. 12, 2010. He did so for the Bengals against the Steelers in a 23-7 loss. It had been a 22-yarder against one of the NFL’s best defenses, and some 37-year-old receivers would consider that a great way to go out. Not T.O, though. After rehabbing a knee injury and entering into an argumentative relationship with the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League, Owens ultimately has the shot he has been waiting for.

The Seahawks brought Owens into their Renton, Wash, facility on Monday to see what the 6-time Pro Bowler had left in the tank. As one source expounded, Owens ran a 4.5-40 in his Seahawks workout, and the team started to chat terms. Owens has concluded to a one year deal with Seattle.

Sources claimed that Owens received a deal worth $1 million.

Owens hasn’t played in the NFL since the 2010 season with Cincinnati when he caught 72 passes for 983 yards and 9 touchdowns, but in his October 2011 post-surgery public workout — which brought more interest from the NFL Network than from the NFL itself — Owens looked like a player still much on the mend. He wrestled to accelerate and get separation, and appeared a step slow thru the procedure. Perhaps a healthier Owens will have more to give.

The 38-year-old Owens didn’t get any NFL offers to play last season following the operation on his left knee.

Expecting production from Owens could be a long shot based on recent history. According to Statistics and Information, of the 187 NFL players with at least 20 catches last season, Donald Driver was the only one older than 35. Hines Ward and Tony Gonzalez each had more than 20 catches, but were just 35 last season. NFL betting lines

Owens had 35 catches for 420 yards and 10 touchdowns while playing 8 of 11 games for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League. He was released and lost a possession stake in the team in May.

Owens is the most recent vet receiver the Seahawks have signed since training camp started. It began when the Seahawks brought in Antonio Bryant, but he was cut late last week. Seattle also signed Braylon Edwards, who played sparingly in 2011 with San Francisco during an injury-filled season. Now it’s Owens getting his opportunity.

Seattle is looking for both insurance and a complement for Sidney Rice. Last season, Rice played in just 9 games as he was sidelined by shoulder injuries and concussions. Rice had surgery on both shoulders in the offseason and is being held out of contact drills during coaching camp as the Seahawks try and make him the start of the regular season healthy.

Additionally, the Seattle Seahawks cut No. 2 receiver Mike Williams in July, and Golden Tate, Doug Baldwin and Ben Obomanu, the Seahawks’ main options for filling that position, don’t fit Carroll’s desire to have another tall receiver with a big frame.
