Don't count on Tennessee as T.O. landing spot
As with many things T.O., they can take on a life of their own.
So when Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak said on his weekly radio show Tuesday that he wouldn't rule out bringing Terrell Owens in for a look once he is healthy. And naturally, the firestorm about the possibility of Owens landing with the Titans became news.
Except that Owens isn't coming to Nashville. As Munchak clarified on Wednesday, the Titans are simply prepared to do their due diligence on Owens the same way they would any other player, should the need arise again to add a wide receiver.
“He's not a guy specifically. It's rare that we would talk about anything in the future. Anything could happen weeks from now,” Munchak said. “I have no idea on his situation, his health. I don't even know if he'd have a chance to pass a physical this year, for all I know. But it was asked of me if he was completely healthy, would we take a look at him.
“And I said, well, depending on our situation. Like we've done every Monday or Tuesday here, we take a look at a group of guys and work them out and see if there is someone there that can help us win football games. And that's what you look at. If the timing was all perfectly right, would we bring a guy in and look at him? Sure. Not just him, but like we've been doing. Whoever that person may be. Not just necessarily him.”
Amazingly, and perhaps not coincidentally, Owens' agent Drew Rosenhaus claimed in a tweet on Wednesday that Owens is now ready to begin working out for teams, as he is coming back from a torn ACL suffered in the off-season.
