T.O. May Face Jail Time Over Child Support Payments

Free agent WR Terrell Owens is required to pay Melanie Smith, the mother of his 7 year-old daughter, $5,000 a month for child support. He’s four months behind. WSBTV says he may have to do jail time.

Owens did not show up for his most recent hearing. Judge John Goger has ordered that Terrell Owens show up for a rescheduled hearing July 19th, or he will be arrested.

Owens desperately wants an NFL job and – while Randy Moss is a better deep threat and Chad Ochocinco a better teammate – it’s hard to believe he doesn’t have a job.

He has more 1,000-yard receiving seasons than the Bills’, Texans’, Browns’, Rams’, and Vikings‘ corps combined.

Here are those team’s current projected top-6 wide receivers, along with those of the Dolphins and Colts.

Bills: Steve Johnson, Donald Jones, David Nelson, Naaman Roosevelt, Brad Smith, Marcus Easley
Browns: Greg Little, Mohamed Massaquoi, Josh Gordon, Josh Cribbs, Josh Cooper, Travis Benjamin
Colts: Reggie Wayne, Austin Collie, Donnie Avery, T.Y. Hilton, Jabin Sambrano, Griff Whalen
Dolphins: Davone Bess, Chad Ochocinco, Legedu Naanee, B.J. Cunningham, Brian Hartline, Clyde Gates
Rams: Brian Quick, Danny Amendola, Greg Salas, Steve Smith, Danario Alexander, Austin Pettis
Texans: Andre Johnson, Kevin Walter, Lestar Jean, Devier Posey, Jeff Maehl, Juaquin Iglesias
Vikings: Percy Harvin, Jerome Simpson, Jarius Wright, Emmanuel Arceneaux, Greg Childs, Michael Jenkins

I have a hard time understanding why none of these teams have brought him in to compete. I believe he’d take a vet minimum deal. I also think Ochocinco and Simpson would vouch for him as a teammate.
