How far has Terrell Owens fallen? Chicago Rush coach Bob McMillen thinks Owens would “absolutely complement” his wide receiver corps.
Three years ago, T.O. was an elite receiver coming off a 15-touchdown season with Dallas. And now, he’s a laughingstock. One day after holding a farcical workout in California, agent Drew Rosenhaus said he was yet to hear from any NFL teams interested in his client.
Of course, the lack of interest shouldn’t surprise anyone. Not one team attended Owens’ workout, and no team is willing to take on a chance on a 37-year-old with a busted knee and attitude problems.
So will Owens hit rock bottom and join McMillen’s Arena Football League team? If he does, it won’t be for the money. Michael Freeman of CBS Sports reports that the contract would pay him $400 per week, which is standard for the Arena League.
But Owens is starving for attention, and this might be his only way to get back into the public eye. It’s the kind of stunt that’s right down his and Rosenhaus’ alley. Who knows — maybe it’s the best avenue to Owens’ next reality show.
