Munchak could have a chance to make a final decision sooner rather than later.
Agent Drew Rosenhaus tells PFT that Owens, who tore an ACL earlier this year, has been cleared to play. His rehab reportedly included stem-cell therapy in Korea.
Rosenhaus says that an open workout could be held within the next week, in advance of visits to potentially interested teams.
Owens, a 15-year veteran, has played for the 49ers, Eagles, Cowboys, Bills, and Bengals. He is tied for second on the all-time receiving touchdown list with 153. He is No. 6 all time with 1,078 reception, and second in receiving yards with 15,934.
Some think that T.O. ultimately will find no takers. But if he can still stretch the field, there are contending teams that would benefit from what he brings to the table.
