Reportedly spurned in their desire to trade for a 35-year-old receiver who hasn’t done much to date in his first year with a new team, the Ravens are now reportedly interested in an even older receiver who has done even less in his first season with a new franchise.
Yes, the Ravens could swing a deal for Patriots receiver Joey Galloway, who has been a healthy scratch for the last three games.
Regarding the report that the Ravens called the Bills regarding the availability of Terrell Owens, Baltimore coach John Harbaugh, who worked for the Eagles during Owens’ time there, threw caution to the wind Monday and talked about a guy who is under contract with another team: “All I can say about T.O. is this — I’m going to jump out on a limb here
- I’ve got a lot of respect for T.O., OK? Always have,” Harbaugh said, per the Baltimore Sun.
“He’s a football player, he practices hard. I think he’s got a really
good heart, always have. We have a good relationship. Now is anything
happening there? Not that I know of. And I think I would know if
something was happening.”
It’s not happening because, as Peter King of NBC suggested Saturday and Jay Glazer of FOX specifcally reported Sunday in relation to the call from the Ravens, the Bills expressed no interest in moving Owens and his one-year, $6.5 million salary.
The Ravens currently have five wideouts on the roster: Derrick Mason, Mark Clayton, Kelley Washington, Demetrius Williams, and David Tyree, who signed with the team only recently.
The Ravens have shown no interest in other free-agent wideouts, including Matt Jones and Marvin Harrison.
