T.O. is officially ready to play

Terrell Owens AP

On Tuesday, Titans coach Mike Munchak said he could be interested in signing receiver Terrell Owens.

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.

    The Titans are winning. Why risk bringing in T.O.? The man ruins every team he touches

    T.Blow. Whether I’m referring to the man above or the one in Denver I’ll leave up to you.

  8. clayjayhawk says: Oct 19, 2011 4:33 PM

    T.O. To the Vikings so him and Mcnabb can kiss while wearing purple!

  9. nookers says: Oct 19, 2011 4:34 PM

    Don’t count the Bill’s out .. we need a freaking wide out other than Stevie Johnson

  10. shieldsisland37 says: Oct 19, 2011 4:35 PM

    Team. Obliterator.

  11. waltdawg says: Oct 19, 2011 4:35 PM

    Anyone else looking for the next PFT Headline ASAP?

    TO who?

  12. alaricsrevenge says: Oct 19, 2011 4:35 PM

    T.O. will rejoin Mcnabb in Minn to rekindle their thick-as-chunky-soup chemistry….. oh… wait..

  13. johnnyjagfan says: Oct 19, 2011 4:35 PM

    OAKLAND!

  14. donz0 says: Oct 19, 2011 4:36 PM

    Texans

  15. clayjayhawk says: Oct 19, 2011 4:36 PM

    And Drew Always tells the truth so he must be ready.

  16. turk2875 says: Oct 19, 2011 4:37 PM

    Is it odd I’m that actually kinda, sorta, alittle bit rooting for him to get on a team and play a couple more seasons?

  17. cowboyhater says: Oct 19, 2011 4:38 PM

    My flag football team could use a wideout. I may have to go take a look at his workout.

  18. skoobyfl says: Oct 19, 2011 4:39 PM

    Let’s see if he can pass an NFL physical before making any declarations.

  19. whodey1218 says: Oct 19, 2011 4:39 PM

    TO reunites with Carson Palmer in Oakland!!

  20. solgoode says: Oct 19, 2011 4:39 PM

    Does the “open workout” consist of doing sit-ups in his driveway?

  21. unlost1 says: Oct 19, 2011 4:40 PM

    After someone else signs him maybe the Raiders will give up a draft pick for him. Never mind- they don’t have any left!

  22. whodey1218 says: Oct 19, 2011 4:40 PM

    Oakland can act like they picked up TO in the draft hahaha

  23. castleofcheese says: Oct 19, 2011 4:44 PM

    Did anyone ever find out why he was rushed to the hospital?

  24. EJ says: Oct 19, 2011 4:45 PM

    You are always welcome back to Buffalo T.O.!

  25. scoops1 says: Oct 19, 2011 4:45 PM

    Go back to the 49ers….please

    just don’t cry

  26. birdsflynorth206 says: Oct 19, 2011 4:45 PM

    TO will never be a team player he might as well keep making reality shows that suck

  27. kashonly says: Oct 19, 2011 4:45 PM

    Saints…Meachump, Lost Moore, Hendropsen…combine for 4 catches? Can I get an Upgrade

  28. rajbais says: Oct 19, 2011 4:46 PM

    Wow, T.O. finally became healthy when Mike Munchak opened his trap!!!

  29. skinsfaninnebraska says: Oct 19, 2011 4:49 PM

    Stretches the field as he poisons the locker room. No thanks!

  30. 4gone says: Oct 19, 2011 4:50 PM

    That was a speedy recovery, he must have really killed himself to get back so quick…

    …to soon???

  31. mrgroovesd says: Oct 19, 2011 4:50 PM

    There’s a lot of teams that need help in the WR area. He may not be the same but he does give a team some kind of help.

  32. ny82jy says: Oct 19, 2011 4:51 PM

    Give him a shot! He will have to play hard and behave cause he probably wont get any guaranteed money. He had a real nice year last year and as i always say the guy is a freak even still. If i was tennessee id do it. If it doesnt work then cut him. That simple.

  33. koolbreeze7 says: Oct 19, 2011 4:51 PM

    T.O. & Ocho in New England!!!!!!!!

  34. petehemlock says: Oct 19, 2011 4:52 PM

    He can go to New England for T.Ocho 2.o and they can pal around with fellow reality TV star Belichick.

  35. vsica1 says: Oct 19, 2011 4:52 PM

    “jsho55 says: Oct 19, 2011 4:28 PM

    Next weeks headline….0 teams offically have 0 intrest in T.O.”

    sooo…everyone is interested?

  36. galvestontexans says: Oct 19, 2011 4:52 PM

    He might help in Houston for a short term fix

  37. pilot2011 says: Oct 19, 2011 4:53 PM

    He would be an upgrade from Nannee… Owens is a much better Muhsin Muhammid and that bodes well for the Panthers if they decide to try him out.

    He and Steve Smith, along with Olsen/Shockey, and Williams/Stewart would make Carolina’s offense even better.

    The Panthers could easily be 4-2 right now, maybe even 5-1… All that team needs is a couple of wins before they really start to click, and when that happens the NFL better watch out.

  38. knowerofallthings says: Oct 19, 2011 4:55 PM

    How is it that players can go to other countries and have stem cell procedures done that are illegal in the US, but they can’t use HGH?

  39. db9er says: Oct 19, 2011 4:58 PM

    I hope the packers sign him!

  40. goforthanddie says: Oct 19, 2011 4:58 PM

    We finally got rid of him, quit trying to bring him back. And the only one who benefits from signing TO is TO.

  41. duanethomas says: Oct 19, 2011 4:59 PM

    Git ya pop corn ready baybee!!!!!!……….

  42. unc336 says: Oct 19, 2011 5:01 PM

    I can see him going to the rams

  43. kabnwo says: Oct 19, 2011 5:02 PM

    Before he got hurt last year he was having a phenomenal year. If he’s healthy someone who is in need at WR should sign him.

  44. thegonz13 says: Oct 19, 2011 5:08 PM

    And no one has officially offered him a job either!

  45. numberoneinthehoodg says: Oct 19, 2011 5:09 PM

    Dallas? That way he can fill in when Dez Bryant is not conditioned to finish the game?

  46. thingamajig says: Oct 19, 2011 5:15 PM

    Pilot2011 says: The Panthers could easily be 4-2 right now, maybe even 5-1… All that team needs is a couple of wins before they really start to click, and when that happens the NFL better watch out.

    And if Miami had a couple of wins they’d be 2-3.

  47. geniusesq says: Oct 19, 2011 5:17 PM

    Gotta love his work ethic and desire to play.

  48. db105 says: Oct 19, 2011 5:20 PM

    Locker room cancer

  49. bossplayer213 says: Oct 19, 2011 5:26 PM

    Keep hatin on T.O. Ya’ll gonna hype him up and make him catch a body like that.

  50. muckman207 says: Oct 19, 2011 5:26 PM

    Next week, T.O. will join Tiki in being Flabbergasted!

  51. watermelon1 says: Oct 19, 2011 5:31 PM

    IF no teams show interest(which I highly doubt will be the case)

    it would be hilarious to see Baltimore “hunt” that they “might” have interest… then laugh as Terrell Owens and his agent come crawling, begging, and pleading…. to come to the team that they so vehemently fought to cancel a trade to many years ago!

  52. Chairman Al says: Oct 19, 2011 5:38 PM

    STAY. OUT. OF. OAKLAND.

  53. traevin says: Oct 19, 2011 5:41 PM

    Just great. Now I have to be a Titans fan???

    I’ve already turned in my Buffalo and Cincinnati fan membership cards. After going to all the trouble to sign up for them and then TO only stays on a year? The Titan better keep him around until he at least turns 42!!!

    Go… Titans?

    That doesn’t even sound right.

  54. rexismybff says: Oct 19, 2011 5:48 PM

    Jerry Jones says he still loves him some T.O.

    You never know!

  55. oldcracker says: Oct 19, 2011 5:50 PM

    T.O. to Dallas! (J.J. & T.O. = heaven!!!)

  56. bills9951 says: Oct 19, 2011 6:00 PM

    T.O.to BUFFALOOOOOOOOOO!!
    C’Mon back Terrell we have a starting spot for you immediately.
    MUCKMAN – tiki quit and tried to waltz back into the league, TO got hurt and worked his way back, big difference. And he will help some team I just hope its Buffalo.

  57. august1969 says: Oct 19, 2011 6:00 PM

    thats great…except he can’t stretch the field anymore…any takers?

  58. rajbais says: Oct 19, 2011 6:00 PM

    So T.O. happened to be healthy once Mike Munchak expressed slight interest!!

  59. twesty85 says: Oct 19, 2011 6:21 PM

    anyone who thinks that T.O. would be a horrible addition to any team is an idiot. He wont get any guaranteed money so he’ll have something to play for and he may not have the speed but he has the hands and route running ability to help someone. Watch for the Pats to pick him up. Just had a thought though.. What if the Lions pick him up? T.O. with Megatron? That would be INSANE.

  60. rchase72 says: Oct 19, 2011 6:58 PM

    I would love for TO to come to the Rams. B Lloyd, DX, M Clayton and TO. Wow..we could be right back in it to win it!!!

  61. huejackson says: Oct 19, 2011 7:02 PM

    Whoa look at all the comments T.O generates..
    Some people cans say they hate him all they want but they obviously care enough about this guy to take time out of their day to post a comment about him.
    I think he is a bit of a douche but this guy can play.
    I wonder iF Palmer has a good relationship with T.O
    He would look good in Silver and Black, Plus he would finally get a ring this year

  62. jeff061 says: Oct 19, 2011 7:10 PM

    I love all these TO haters…really? Don’t buy into the “media” hatred for T.O….same peopel who were saying he wouldn’t get a job 3 years ago!

    Look at last year…75 Receptions, 1,000 yards, 10 TD’s

    He’ll be signed withing 3 days of his workout.

  63. howleyesque says: Oct 19, 2011 7:20 PM

    If the Titans DO sign him; it will be good news… for the rest of their division!

  64. edukator4 says: Oct 19, 2011 7:24 PM

    i dont like the guy but come
    on he can flat out play, and of course i just stashed him on my ff bench

  65. johnnyshore says: Oct 19, 2011 7:55 PM

    To the 49ers fans on here saying they need T.O. Do you realize that the team is 5-1? The last thing San Fran’s offense needs is to bring in T.O. I am a 49er fan, and have great memories of T.O. back in his 9er days, but after all the turmoil that has followed him from team to team, I don’t think the 49ers should risk anything derailing the season they have going on right now. As confident as Alex Smith is now, let’s see how he is after being screamed at on the field by T.O. for not throwing the ball to him, (especially considering T.O. would be the 3rd or 4th option on this offense behind Gore, Davis, and maybe Crabtree.)

  66. jkr32 says: Oct 19, 2011 8:03 PM

    Look at his numbers from last year. What makes you haters think he has lost everything? He’s still better than any WR on the bills,raiders,browns,bears,broncos,titans,vilkings,chargers,49ers,rams,bucaneers,jaguars etc…. I’m sure I left a team or 2 out. Somebody could definately use him.

  67. jigwig13 says: Oct 19, 2011 8:23 PM

    can anybody really say at this stage he will be brought on and be a cancer to the team…his last two they had no problems…he knows this is his last chance with his injury and his age he’s not gonna mess that up..

  68. howleyesque says: Oct 19, 2011 8:23 PM

    For those of you who LOVE him, I hope some “lucky” team DOES get him (preferably the Giants or the Deadskins). But, as much as Buffalo AND Cincinatti celebrated (you’d have thought they ALL won the lottery) nobody waved goodbye when he LEFT. Nor, does ANY of the FIVE teams that HAVE had him want him BACK! That SHOULD tell you something. With TO it’s either a TD or a drop. The numbers say out of 50 passes to him, 5 TD’s and 45 drops; when 15 or MORE of those are third down “drive killers” it DOESN’T help you WIN.

  69. 4512dawg4512 says: Oct 19, 2011 8:39 PM

    Thats the best news I’ve heard all day! Lets Go T.O!!!!!!

  70. tomtravis76 says: Oct 19, 2011 9:38 PM

    T.O to the Raiders makes sense, since he had nice rapport with Carson last season. These are the kind of moves Al would make,and it will be a good story for the Raiders to win the AFC West, this season.
    T.O is smart enough to not make waves this season , so he can get a contract next season.He still is better than alot of the WR’s in the league currently.

  71. fatcatt says: Oct 19, 2011 10:00 PM

    They should’ve gave him an injection in his hands while he was getting his knee done. Like maybe something that makes the ball stick to your hands?

  72. cluelessdufus says: Oct 19, 2011 10:22 PM

    mabey i can see the titans go for him for a year since no Britt

  73. sirthorazine says: Oct 19, 2011 11:49 PM

    I don’t see this ever happening, but I would love to see him in Buffalo. He was nothing but a class act there and he showed a lot of talent and humility in Cincinatti.

    Under Chan Gailey’s new system, he’d be a great addition. As long as they didn’t force him into being top dog.

    put him in Roscoes place, another midfield weapon.

  74. quittsburghstoolers says: Oct 20, 2011 7:23 AM

    I would not be shocked if Owens is signed by the Titans.

    He has to prove he’s okay now, of course.

    If they do (or if anyone does, for that matter) they would be wise to structure his deal so they can drop his ass easily if he causes any problems…

  75. howleyesque says: Oct 20, 2011 9:38 AM

    Good one sirthorazine I ALMOST took it seriously until I got to the part about “unless they FORCE him to be top dog”, only THEN did I check out the screenname.

  76. ninerdynasty says: Oct 20, 2011 5:14 PM

    I know is wishful thinking and the niners front office wants no part of T.O. but it would be cool if he came and retired with the team that drafted him.
