Go get T.O.


So I just read this article on PFT and Florio has a good point, if he is healthy this is the perfect cheap option for the Cards to have somebody strech the field. What do you guys think?

T.O. moves closer to 100 percent Posted by Mike Florio on August 9, 2011, 10:01 AM EDT nfl_g_owens_580 Getty Images

Unlike receiver Randy Moss, receiver Terrell Owens has not retired.  But T.O. has been forgotten in the two-week free-agent free-for-all.

Owens, who tore an ACL in the offseason (possibly while filming his latest reality show), continues to rehab.  We’re told that he’s a couple of weeks away from returning to 100 percent.  If that happens, his recovery would be nothing short of remarkable, in light of his age (37) and the normal rehab requirements for an injury of this nature.

Of course, any interested teams would have the final say on whether Owens truly has reached 100 percent.  And then there’s the question of whether anyone will truly be interested, given his reputation for ripping apart a locker room.

But if — and that could be a big if — he can run like he used to, a team that needs a deep threat who won’t cost a lot of money could give him a look-see.  With the Cardinals hoping to stretch the field and with Moss unlikely to be lured to Arizona, the man who has played for the 49ers, Eagles, Cowboys, Bills, and Bengals could be the answer.

Or maybe Ochocinco will lobby for a Batman-and-Robin sequel in Foxboro.  (That could be the quickest way for Chad to be a former Patriot.)

Either way, Owens could be signed by Week One.  If, and only if, there’s an interested team that concludes his knee has sufficiently healed
