Given some of the serious financial problems Terrell Owens has faced over the last year or so, one would think he would being doing everything he can to try to make the Seahawks final roster. T.O. was lucky Pete Carroll and company invited him to camp, but to this point there has been little indication that he is making the most of his time in Seattle.
A training camp roundup that was published by Eric Williams of the Tacoma News Tribune on Thursday indicated that Owens has not been impressive.
He has a lot to overcome. And the fact that he finished without a catch and a bad drop against Denver is just scratching the surface. He still appears to be the same T.O. who complains when things are not going his way. And Pete Carroll will not put up with that from a fifth or six receiver…
Braylon Edwards, the other savvy veteran who is hoping to earn a roster spot, has had a much different camp. Williams said Edwards has had at least “one eye-opening play” every practice and has been one of the most consistent big receivers on the team. Both Owens and Edwards have already put their best days behind them, so it remains to be seen how many of that type of player Carroll will want on his Week 1 roster.
It’s possible that Owens is feeling the effects of the knee injury that once reportedly put his career in jeopardy, which could be resulting in a frustrating situation for him as he tries to return to the NFL. Whatever the case, it’s not exactly shocking to hear that T.O.’s attitude is an issue. It’s a familiar story that we know all too well.
