File this under Are You Kidding Me: There is a report put out by WEEI that says that wide receiver Terrell Owens is open to the idea of playing for the New England Patriots.
In an interview with WJMN Radio, Owens addressed his critics by saying that not unlike LeBron James, he could take a lesser role and less money in order to be employed by the Patriots; Owens added:
“People think that they have that perception about me. Of course. Any receiver … what receiver that’s out there that’s had great stats, great careers that didn’t want the ball? I’m no different.”
“But of course — I mean, you’ve got Brady there. You’ve got the great mind, coach Belichick.
“I’m like LeBron. I can go there and take less of a role, take less money and put everything aside and make it work.”
This is funny suff coming from Owens as either he has found religion or he is trying to dupe New England into signing him since Buffalo got their fill of him. I can just see it now. He and Randy Moss – two of the premier problem children in the NFL – being on the same team. As much as I do not care for New England, head coach Bill Bellichick deserves a better fate than this.
Certainly Bob Kraft and the Patriots brass to not take on another head case and find their wide receivers elsewhere – assuming they do go shopping for one.
But certainly there is a team on the West Coast that would take him on. Hint? Silver and Black.
