The Seattle Seahawks have confirmed that Terrell Owens will come in for a workout this week, perhaps setting up (a) the comeback Owens has been angling for since the end of the 2010 season, when he finished up his one-year deal with the Cincinnati Bengals and (b) a return to the NFC West, the division in which TO began his career.
So what’s Owens been up to since playing out his deal in Cincinnati?
Well, he suffered a torn ACL, hosted an open workout to show that he had recovered from the injury (a workout that no NFL team came to see) and spent four months with the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League before being cut for showing “a lack of interest.”
Cowboys’ owner and general manager Jerry Jones said a few months back that he believed Owens could still play in the NFL, causing some to wonder if a reunion between America’s Team and Mr. Getcha Popcorn Ready was in the cards, but we can’t imagine this was ever really an option. As recently as this year, after all, the receiver more or less blamed Tony Romo for playing a role in his sudden departure from Dallas.
Instead, it appears that if a comeback is in order, it’ll be in the Pacific Northwest--and somewhat interestingly, the Cowboys are set to meet the Seahawks in week two.
