Terrell Owens' NFL comeback might have been brief, as the veteran wide receiver announced via Twitter that he'd been cut by Seattle. In two preseason games for the Seahawks, Owens dropped an excessive number of catchable balls and had just two receptions for a total of 40 yards. Was this T.O.'s last chance to make an NFL roster?
On Thurday, "First Take" debated which new wide receiver will have the biggest impact on his new team. Randy Moss, Terrell Owens and Chad Johnson have either struggled of late or been out of football entirely, but they're all looking to recapture their talent this season. Christian Fauria thinks Moss will make the 49ers real contenders, but Skip Bayless isn't so sure -- he has Chad Johnson as his sleeper pick. What's your take?
We've been feeling kind of bad for Terrell Owens as of late -- he obviously wanted to get back to the NFL and sounded awfully down about the whole thing. He'll likely get his second (or third, or fourth) chance soon, as he has agreed to a contract with the Seattle Seahawks. T.O. joins a team that rarely has been known for its passing acumen, but likely starter Matt Flynn could be just what the Seahawks need to make it work with Owens. Will Seattle regret this signing, or is Owens the answer?
Can Owens behave?
Terrell Owens never has been known as a particularly tactful person, but it could be back to arena football for him if he becomes a significant distraction in Seattle.
Better than 2010?
Owens' 2010-11 season was relatively productive, if a bit off his typical level of performance.
