Attention, PFT Planet:  You can quit sending links regarding the statements of 49ers G.M. Scot McCloughan that the team has not “closed the door” on acquiring free-agent receiver Terrell Owens.
We’ve re-confirmed the situation with our source, and we’re confident that the Niners don’t want Owens.
So why would the Niners leave the door open even though they’d slam it if he tries to walk through it?  We’ll allow PFT Planet to speculate as to the possible reasons in the comments.
By the way, it’s probably not a good idea for any NFL team to be talking about Owens at all until he’s officially released.  An executive with one team opined to us that ‘Skins executive V.P. of football operations Vinny Cerrato should not have said publicly that the Redskins aren’t interested in Owens.  We can only assume that the same exec would believe that McCloughan should not be suggesting possible interest in a guy who technically is still the property of another team.

    Someone said it earlier, but now I’m convinced, this has officially become PFTO.

    How about just reporting on teams that _are_ interested in T.O. It’ll save bandwidth.

    LOL. Everybody is like backing out just because Terrell Owens is a talker. I am surpized the 49ers are not interested in him. because its the team where he used to play at…I mean why not…lol

    I would really like to see the Kansas City Chiefs to pick up him. I would like to see Terrell Owens in a Chiefs uniform …. That would be really awesome

    she-ho is looking at a pay cut.
    why would the 49ers want him? so he and singletary could be at daggers drawn day one?

    TO doesn’t want the Niners. Not to mention Big Mike would slug him by preseason week 2.

    Hey “CHAMP IS HERE”, I’m a Raider fan and I’d love to see T.O> in a Chief uniform too! 🙂

    “why would the 49ers want him? so he and singletary could be at daggers drawn day one?”
    Are you saying Mike and TO would drop trou and have a “sword” fight? It IS SanFran, after all.

    St Florio didn’t need to listen to the McCloughan interview. He don’t need no stinking facts. 49ers guilty of tampering. No prayers for THEM.
    By the way, Kawakami isn’t a source of anything except lies, half truths & rumors. Oh wait a minute …

    Wouldn’t it be great, since Jeff Garcia is available too, for a reunion. Not that theres anything wrong with that.
