Recently, Bengals receiver Terrell Owens said that he’d like to join the Jets. Another receiver with the same last name reportedly is considering an offer to do so.
The Toronto Sun recently reported that CFL wideout Chad Owens is mulling an offer to join the Jets, and that Owens is expected to make a decision soon.
Owens, who plays for the Toronto Argonauts, was the CFL’s special-teams player of the year in 2010.
“The offer is on the table from the Jets, but we are weighing all of our options,” Owens’ agent, Richard Burnoski, told the Sun via e-mail. “It’s a fair offer and Chad has to make the final decision.”
Burnoski said the possibility of a work stoppage is a factor in the decision-making process.
Owens wasn’t one of 18 players who signed futures contracts with the Jets on Wednesday.
