Braylon Edwards may not want to get too comfortable in his role as the Seahawks’ official washed-up wideout.
Yeah, Antonio Bryant is gone. But the guy who replaced him in Cincinnati could be replacing Bryant once again.
Dave “Softy” Mahler of KJR radio in Seattle reports that Terrell Owens is on his way to Seattle.
For now, it’s just a visit. It’s unknown whether Owens is getting a tryout or signing a contract.
Still, it’s the first interest anyone has shown in Owens since the end of the 2010 season, when he finished a one-year deal with the Bengals.
Owens also has played for the 49ers, Eagles, Cowboys, and Bills. If he joins the Seahawks, he’ll return to the NFC West for the first time since leaving the 49ers after the 2003 season.
Given that the Seahawks run the West Coast offense under coordinator Darrell Bevell, it’s actually a good fit, from an X-and-O standpoint. Owens knows the offense; the question is whether he can still run.
If he can, the men tied for second on the all-time touchdown reception list will be back in the same division again. Randy Moss, now with the 49ers and not wearing Owen’s No. 81, and T.O. were both in the AFC East three years ago, when Moss was a member of the Patriots and Owens played for the Bills.
