Terrell Owens is aware that his window for playing in the NFL has a small crack in it. That window is definitely almost closed.
At 39, and the perception of being a locker room cancer, Owens now must sit and wait to see if he as any interest later this summer.
Owens on NFL AM this morning discussing several different topics, and trying to keep is name relevant. Owens was asked about his potential to play this coming season.
“Nothing as of right now,” he said. “So I understand the process, obviously teams are really taking a closer look in evaluating their younger players. Being a free agent, I understand that later in the months as training camp starts, they’ll start looking for veterans.”
Owens hinted that the Vikings and Chiefs from a personnel perspective, both seem like good fits for him to make and contribute to a roster.
Owens was then asked why he wasn’t on a roster, and reiterated that he feels he’s being punished for some of his actions earlier in his career.
“It’s all politics. I think a lot of it has to do with my reputation, things that I’ve done early in my career,” he said. “I’m a changed person, I’m a bit more mature then I was in years past and I think if anybody out there can look past that, and look what I can bring to the team than some of the things that happened in the past, I can look past it and maybe they could and I could go in and help a team develop some of those younger guys.”
