Report: Rams in 'serious' pursuit of Terrell Owens
Maybe you should get ready to take your popcorn with you to St. Louis.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen has reported that the Rams are in “serious” pursuit of free-agent wide receiver Terrell Owens. The Rams are extremely thin on the depth chart at wide receiver. They have Donnie Avery, Laurent Robinson, Brandon Gibson and rookie Mardy Gilyard as top possibilities on their roster. So, yes, the Rams could use some help.
If coach Steve Spagnuolo can buy into what Owens has been selling – that he isn’t a distraction and a problem in the locker room – maybe he will be willing to pair Owens with rookie quarterback Sam Bradford. Certainly the Rams want t outfit their franchise quarterback with all the tools needed. Stay tuned. Cincinnati might not be the only possibility.
Bet Owens didn’t think he’d have to consider St. Louis after a one-year stay in Buffalo though. After all, remember that Owens let it be known he was hoping to sign with a contender for this season. If everything falls in place for the Rams, they could be contending to not finish in last place in the NFC West. If he lands with the Rams, it's fair to speculate it could have been the only offer Owens had waiting.
