Receiver Terrell Owens has expressed in past years a desire to play for the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons have not been interested.
During his ongoing free-agency excursion, Owens has not tried to attract Atlanta’s interest. As it turns out, he would have been wasting his time.
“I don’t think [we’ll show an interest in Owens],” Falcons G.M. Thomas Dimitroff told ESPN.com’s Len Pasquarelli. “We like the guys
we have. No, I don’t see us doing that.”
Though Dimitroff’s words contain a whiff of equivocation, he may not
have time to change his mind. In recent days, the Bengals and the Rams have emerged as the primary teams interested in T.O.’s services. It remains to be seen whether other teams get into the bidding.
