Rosenhaus says one team is “very interested” in T.O.


Gone and largely forgotten, receiver Terrell Owens is still holding out hope for a return to the NFL.

Agent Drew Rosenhaus tells ESPN’s Adam Schefter that one team is “very interested” in Owens.

But Rosenhaus didn’t mention the team, citing the sensitivity of the situation.  And that makes sense, given that merely flirting with T.O. will create nearly the same distractions as signing him.  So the team would be wise to make a final decision before making it known that there’s even a mild interest.

That said, plenty of league insiders will react by citing a time-honored principle:  If the agent won’t name the interested team, there is no interested team.  (Other than the Chicago Rush of the Arena Football League.)

Of course, that principle has been cited in the past regarding Rosenhaus and Owens, and there ended up being an interested team.

This time, it’s hard not to wonder whether Rosenhaus is merely trying to scare up a market by suggesting that Owens may not be available to any interested team for much longer.

    Wait, I thought the UFL season was over?

  3. commandercornpone says: Nov 27, 2011 11:06 AM

    yes. the harlem globetrotters are starting up an exhibition football team.

    Just stay in your hole, TO.

  5. infectorman says: Nov 27, 2011 11:07 AM

    lets see: I know of a team that has already signed a once-great, aging WR, that is currently hurt and has not nearly lived up to pre-season expectations…

  6. trbowman says: Nov 27, 2011 11:08 AM

    Free TO!

  7. themanchine says: Nov 27, 2011 11:08 AM

    He didn’t say it was an NFL team….

  8. packerjer says: Nov 27, 2011 11:08 AM

    Of the teams usually predisposed to doing something like this, 2 of them, the Cowboys and Bengals, have already gone down that road.

    I guess that leaves the Jets and Redskins.

  9. bonerchamp says: Nov 27, 2011 11:09 AM

    I’d love to see him on the Pats just for the hell of it. He can still play!

  10. packerjer says: Nov 27, 2011 11:09 AM

    How could I forget the Raiders? They have a lot of injuries at the position and this kind of thing is right up their alley.

    Welcome to the Raiders, Mr. Owens

  14. tinkletinkleonyourstar says: Nov 27, 2011 11:13 AM

    he didn’t say what position the team was possibly interested in him filling… equipment manager?, waterboy?, etc, etc.

  15. captainloaded says: Nov 27, 2011 11:14 AM

    Time to give it up Terrell.

  16. jphoops says: Nov 27, 2011 11:17 AM

    Tell us which team

  17. raiderman81 says: Nov 27, 2011 11:18 AM

    OMG please dont let it be my raiders….. please no!!!!!!!!!!! Hue ford and moore are hurt but dont do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. phadedwun says: Nov 27, 2011 11:19 AM

    In my head I’m trying to think of playoff teams who have had injuries to their receiving core..

    Really – the only team that comes to mind when I think of that is the Raiders.

    MAYBE the Titans – but I really think the Texans got that division on lock.

  19. txxxchief says: Nov 27, 2011 11:19 AM

    I’m pretty sure it’s the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. They need more offensive punch to take down the B.C. Lions in the Grey Cup today! Way to go T.O.!!!!

  20. darkblue08 says: Nov 27, 2011 11:23 AM

    I know its never going to happen, but please let us see Brady pass to T.O. …and cut Chad already.

  21. tebowspeech says: Nov 27, 2011 11:24 AM

    TEAM EDWARD??? OMG!~~~

  22. dolphins4 says: Nov 27, 2011 11:25 AM

    Maybe it’s the G men.

  23. justadude71 says: Nov 27, 2011 11:25 AM

    Teams became interested because Rosenhaus lied about there being interested teams.

    It is a tactic. That is all. Rosenhaus is looking for his next big check. TO is an afterthought.

  24. txxxchief says: Nov 27, 2011 11:27 AM

    Shameless free plug for NBC: The Grey Cup is on Versus in the USA at 6:30 ET. It should be a better game than the Steelers-Chiefs!

  25. Little Earthquake says: Nov 27, 2011 11:28 AM

    The NBA lockout’s over – it’s the Miami Heat.

    After all, they’re just one or two players away from winning a championship…

  26. edmazeing1 says: Nov 27, 2011 11:28 AM

    I wish Raiders could sign T.O, just for today”s game!!!

  27. canowack says: Nov 27, 2011 11:30 AM

    Raiders…even though many may not like it, it would still be better than many of the late Mr. Davis’ moves. The boy can still play

  28. backindasaddle says: Nov 27, 2011 11:30 AM

    T.O. = Terribly Obnoxious

  29. icontutu says: Nov 27, 2011 11:31 AM

    I’m a long term “Eagles Fan,” to tell you the truth, with McNabb gone, I’d be glad to have “TO,” back. Certainly a heck of a lot better then “Ocho,” Patriots took him! TO is a W/R destined for the HOF. This article is Rosenhaus’s, “Old School Way,” of generating interest. Don’t know why the, “Teams in need are dragging their feet.” Any potential difficulty can be addressed in a contract. “TO,” is starting to show signs of maturity, sad it is at the end of his career.

  30. kingjoe1 says: Nov 27, 2011 11:32 AM

    The Eagles are bringing him back. Yes!!!!!!!!!

  31. mrbigass says: Nov 27, 2011 11:34 AM

    He is desperate for money. He would play if they just paid his child support…..

  32. milburg2 says: Nov 27, 2011 11:37 AM

    I have a feeling its the Texans.

  33. opbilly says: Nov 27, 2011 11:40 AM

    o.k. drew. i believe you!!! (wink wink). arent you the same guy that said he was 100 percent about 15 minutes after i watched an interview with owens who said he was about 80 percent. so i had to figure owens was pumping it up about 20 percent higher so how much was rosenhaus pumping it up! dude is done

  34. buffaloniner says: Nov 27, 2011 11:41 AM

    “it’s hard not to wonder whether Rosenhaus is merely trying to scare up a market”

    ^^^ This

  35. palinforpresidentofnorthkorea says: Nov 27, 2011 11:43 AM

    I was about to offer T.O. a job using all his marketable skills – on my lawn care team.

  36. caseyanthonymunoz says: Nov 27, 2011 11:44 AM

    They have a football team in the Psyche Ward?

  37. dalucks says: Nov 27, 2011 11:45 AM

    The Texans have one wide reviever who can catch the ball by the name of Andre Johnson and with Matt Leinart at qb, the Texans are going to see 8 man defenses to stop the run and Andre will be double teamed so the teams success depends on whether or not Kevin Walter, Jacoby Jones, or Derrick Mason can beat one on one coverage. Oh yeah Texans, signing Terrell Owens is overdue and lets do it before a loss and before Matt Leinart catches criticism for not being a starting quarterback.

  38. dougdoug2 says: Nov 27, 2011 11:47 AM

    Most teams in the league should take a look at him. I’m a Steeler fan and we are stacked at wr. Brown, Sanders, Wallace, Ward, Cotchery.

  39. mikehockhurtz says: Nov 27, 2011 11:53 AM


  40. 4512dawg4512 says: Nov 27, 2011 11:56 AM

    I agree, I think the Texans would be a good fit. Titans too. Imagine T.O lined up in the slot next to Andre Johnson, I wouldn’t want to be DB. Either way it’s great news, Lets Go TO!

  41. Brooklyn Dodgers of Los Angeles says: Nov 27, 2011 11:57 AM

    California Redwoods?

  42. Exiled1 says: Nov 27, 2011 12:04 PM

    I know I’m in the minority but I hope he finds a team to play for.

    If anything it’s for us to find out if he really has anything left in the tank or not and maybe we can put the issue to rest once and for all if he tanks.

    But,when this guy is on he can ball.

  43. 1265lombardiave says: Nov 27, 2011 12:06 PM

    Detroit. They won’t be able to run the ball and GB proved Thur you
    CAN contain Megatron. Detroit will probably have to beat GB week 16 to make playoffs unless NY and Chicago fall apart.
    If I were an opposing GM I would say to hell with stopping GB we need to stockpile playmakers and stay with them for 4 qtrs. There are more WRs than corners.

  44. raiderbeliever says: Nov 27, 2011 12:14 PM

    I hope it’s not the Raiders.

    I also hope we don’t become interested in Ochocinco after this season.

    Just what we don’t need, two prima donnas who can’t play.

  45. adirtyplayernamedsue says: Nov 27, 2011 12:18 PM

    Sure there is Drew wink,wink.

  46. phillybirds says: Nov 27, 2011 12:23 PM

    im sure the raiders wouldnt put owens on a team with carson after last year

  47. ticalcaldwell says: Nov 27, 2011 12:37 PM

    Poor Drew….I just wonder if even he realizes how pathetic he looks…constantly pandering to the media….As a Bengals fan….HE LED OUR TEAM LAST YEAR IN RECEIVING……and we still don’t want him back….THAT IS HOW BAD HE IS

  48. upyoursnfu says: Nov 27, 2011 12:41 PM

    So which WNBA team is it?

  49. auntiemm says: Nov 27, 2011 12:46 PM

    Why even mention this???? Of course his agent is going to say someone is very interested. It’s the only way to keep his name out there these days. Gee, is Tiki Barber next?? Can we have a real story please?

  50. melikefootball says: Nov 27, 2011 12:56 PM

    I did hear one of the TV networks is interested in T.O. for their new Saturday morning kids show…..they need a CLOWN!

  51. noquickreactionshere says: Nov 27, 2011 12:56 PM

    Damn’t Drew, why would you put this out there. We have been going after T.O. for a while and now we might not get him. Ok I’ll be honest now, the team after T.O. is my flag football team; Touchdown my pants. T.O. could really help us win the championship and get that Tshirt we are fighting for!

  52. gb4mn0 says: Nov 27, 2011 1:01 PM

    The fecal stained door step of the League the MN vikequeens want him. They need a receiver that can stretch the field for Ponder to throw to so they can see if he’s their QB of the future or not.

  53. duanethomas says: Nov 27, 2011 1:05 PM

    That statement was for T.O. only, he is getting depressed at was going to hit up the medicine cabinet again. No team is interested, the gas can is empty.

  54. rexismybff says: Nov 27, 2011 1:06 PM

    Once the Raiders grab T.O. and Ocho off waivers from the Pats (who were tools to take him in the first place), then they will have successfully completed their mission of destroying the roster for another 5-10 years.

    Al will be so pleased.

  55. konichiwabtches says: Nov 27, 2011 1:22 PM

    Nobody is giving this guy the veteran min for 5 games.

  56. 3octaveFart says: Nov 27, 2011 1:28 PM

    Yeah, I remember Rosenhuas saying there were “lots” of teamns interested in T.O., right before he accepted a crappy one-year deal in Buffalo.
    Kinda makes you wonder who the less desirable teams were…

  57. aldavisisthenfl says: Nov 27, 2011 1:28 PM

    I heard Tiki was flabbergasted TO has more teams interested than him……..

  58. rajbais says: Nov 27, 2011 1:48 PM

    Yes, and Jennifer Love Hewitt and Carmen Electra are both interested in me too!!!!

    Drew, please!!!!

  59. young2rice says: Nov 27, 2011 1:50 PM

    T.O. just retweeted a Niner fan holding a sign that says Niners For Life… Hinting something there Mr. Owens?

  60. johnnyb216 says: Nov 27, 2011 1:57 PM

    Sure there is. This guy seems like he should be doing commercials for a cheap used car dealership. I think his “scouts honor” comment about TO’s health earlier this year instantly ruined TO’s chances of making a team this year.

  61. nomoreseasontix says: Nov 27, 2011 2:00 PM

    This is just the obligatory monthly TO post.
    He’s not gonna play anywhere. Nobody is interested.
    In about a month there will be more talk of a mystery team that is ready to pull the trigger.

  62. eigglesnosuperbowls says: Nov 27, 2011 2:26 PM

    What rosenho failed to mention was the team is in the IWFL the Women’s Independent Football League !

  63. ppdoc13 says: Nov 27, 2011 2:29 PM

    I can guarantee it won’t be the ravens. We had enuf of that fiasco 6 or 7 years ago. Still left with a bad taste in our mouths

  64. jcd213 says: Nov 27, 2011 2:29 PM

    The Rams should sign him. I don’t care about his past.. the guy is better than 3/4 of the crap receivers playing today. He can still make big plays and is a threat to any defense.

  65. robadawb says: Dec 1, 2011 11:23 PM

    LOL. Nice try Douche Bag Drew. No one is interested in TO because TO is cancer to teams that sign him.

    Enjoy enjoy retirement TO. You did it to yourself.
