There’s been plenty of talk about a possible match of free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens going to the Bears. The team could use a playmaker at wide out, and despite Owens age, he is a guy that can still produce.
The guy that would be throwing to Owens is Jay Cutler, who was a guest on “Mike and Mike in the Morning” on ESPN Radio on Thursday.
Cutler says that as of right now with the way things stand, he doesn’t seem to think Owens will be coming to the Windy City anytime soon.
“You know I like T.O., I think he’s a great player and I have always been a fan of his,” Cutler said. “No one works harder than T.O. on the practice field, but with the situation we are in I don’t see us going and getting T.O. especially at this time with learning the offense and trying to fit him in.”
Cutler went on to say that as of now, he thinks the team feels good about the pass catchers on the roster and where they stand with guys like Johnny Knox, Earl Bennett, and Devin Hester.
“I’m comfortable and I think the Bears are comfortable with the receivers we got,” Cutler said. “Ultimately that’s not my decision.”
Owens has been texting and going on Twitter trying to get the attention of players and teams, but Cutler says that the always colorful wide out has not reached out to him – as of yet.
“I don’t know what T.O. is up to,” he said.
