When free agency launched on March 5, only two teams (presumably the Ravens and Bengals) showed an immediate interest in receiver Terrell Owens. After Baltimore traded for Anquan Boldin and Cincy signed Antonio Bryant, the market apparently dried up.
But maybe it didn’t.
Per Jason La Canfora of NFL Network, agent Drew Rosenhaus says he’s in “active discussions” with three teams regarding Owens, that there’s “no set number” for a contract, and that a deal might not be done until the eve of training camp.
In our view, interest in T.O. probably is tied to the outcome of the draft and/or the availability of Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall. If the Seahawks, for example, don’t get Marshall, they may want Owens. And if the Broncos move Marshall, T.O. could be an option.
We also wouldn’t rule out the Redskins, for the right price. Four years ago, it was then-Denver coach Mike Shanahan who first kicked T.O.’s tires. But Shanahan wanted a bargain; Owens held out for — and got — a three-year, $25 million contract from the Cowboys.
