I know this sounds crazy, but what if the Indianapolis Colts signed Terrell Owens? Yesterday, I was watching NFL Network and you see Owens on there, being interviewed by Rich Eisen. I truly felt sad for the guy. Owens said he knew he had character issues. He finally admitted it. He’s clearing himself up. So just stick with me on this one. Here’s some thoughts about Colts getting Owens.
I don’t think Owens will bother Peyton Manning. He was clean with the Buffalo Bills and was able to put up big numbers at the end of the season. I think T.O. will definitely fix up his image if he came to Indianapolis. I mean, why else will nobody sign him? The Colts have signed some guys with character issues in the past.
Owens would bring talent. Even at 36 years of age, Owens can still put up numbers. But I don’t think Owens will be a starter, and he could understand that if he came to the Colts. He probably would serve as a number three slot guy. Or, you never know, the Colts may start him. But Owens could be used as an important guy. He’s probably done being that starting guy now.
Owens will probably want to finish his career with a Super Bowl ring. The Colts are already ranked number one as Super Bowl winners for the 2010-11 NFL season, currently. Owens can probably be that guy that just wants a ring and doesn’t care about his stats. LaDainian Tomlinson is turning into that guy with the New York Jets. Jerome Bettis was that guy in 2005 with the Pittsburgh Steelers, as he allowed Willie Parker to take control. I bet Owens won’t care if he finishes the season with stats like 28-45 receptions and 320-660 yards and one-to-seven touchdowns.
Just think about it. I know Owens is changing his figure know. A team will sign him soon. And Owens knows that. But the only way he can be signed is if he is for sure to not be a annoying characteristic player who is a cancer to the locker room. Owens says he can fix that. So yeah, I could see the Colts signing T.O. It may seem unlikely, but think about it.
That’s all I’m saying.
