A day after Terrell Owens worked out in front of TV cameras but not any NFL scouts, agent Drew Rosenhaus said the workout did not yield any calls from NFL teams.
“No, I haven’t and I don’t think teams are just going to bang down our door,” Rosenhaus said this morning on ESPN Radio. “I think they will continue to evaluate this. It may take another injury. It may take a team to lose another game. It might take a team that has a receiver go down or whose offense struggles further, or for a veteran quarterback to come in and say, ‘I want Terrell Owens on my football team.’”
But Rosenhaus said he’s not discouraged by the lack of interest so far. Instead, he says yesterday’s workout was an attempt to begin the process of generating some interest.
“It really wasn’t a surprise,” Rosenhaus said. “The reality is that we really were trying to create interest. We were trying to generate a buzz. We were trying to show the teams that are currently not banging down our door that Terrell is healthy, and he is in shape, and the knee injury is behind him. And I think we accomplished that.”
Rosenhaus said money won’t be a problem once a team shows interest, and he’s confident that some team will show interest.
“Just because they weren’t there doesn’t mean they weren’t interested,” Rosenhaus said. “I guarantee all 32 teams were paying attention.”
