Terrell Owens stumping for Patriots to sign him
Terrell Owens refuses to give up on his dream of one day playing again in the NFL, and he seems to think he could be of use to the New England Patriots.
After the Patriots lost wide receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola, Owens gushed about New England.
“I don’t know what their needs would be or their considerations would be by bringing me in, but I definitely think an organization like that, it would be an ideal situation for myself to be part of,” he told Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe a week ago. “If they want to work me out to see what I can do if I’m catching or running or cutting, I have no problem with that.”
Now that Rob Gronkowski is also expected to miss at least a couple of weeks, T.O. has taken his campaign to Instagram.
“Let’s get it done! Love u #patsnation,” Owens wrote.
We admire the determination, but the Patriots are no more interested than the last NFL team T.O. tried to sell himself to. Owens will turn 42 next Monday. He has not appeared in a regular season NFL game since 2010. Unfortunately for him, the most attention he is going to get right now is when he has an awkward encounter with some dude at a Starbucks.
Time to let it go, T.O.
