T.O. takes part in Brady-Amendola workouts, too

It was no surprise that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and new Patriots receiver Danny Amendola got together in the vicinity of Castle Bundchen for some pitch and catch.  It was a mild surprise that a guy who has been trying desperately to get back into the league joined them.

Yes, Terrell Owens was there, too, along with Vikings backup quarterback Matt Cassel, who once backed up Brady in New England.

Some will think it means that Owens could be joining a somewhat depleted receiving corps in New England.  With Brandon Lloyd and Wes Welker out and Amendola, Michael Jenkins, and Donald Jones in, T.O. arguably would give the depth chart some lift.

Owens at times has been linked to the Patriots, who have employed in recent years players like Randy Moss and Chad Ochojohnson.  And in New England’s most recent Super Bowl ring, the Pats witnessed an MVP-caliber performance from Owens, who had pushed his way back from a broken ankle.

Still, Owens is now 39.  At this point, signing him would feel more like desperation than genius.

  1. The last time the Patriots “won” a Super Bowl, T.O. was still good.

    That kind of puts things in perspective.

  2. Nah, it’s one thing to get together with some guys for a workout but T.O. has way to much integrity to play for the Patriots.

  3. A lot of fans like to pile on T.O. because of his attitude, but the fact is the guy works hard, and is probably in better shape now than some 25 year olds in the league.

    I’m a Steelers fan living in Cincinnati and when the Bengals signed him I thought it was hilarious and ready for a complete circus with him and Ochocinco. The fact is while Ochocinco was completely over the hill, TO definitely in shape, and really produced. He had 72 catches, 983 yards, and 9 TDs in 14 games.

    He wouldn’t work in every offense, but with Tom Brady getting him the ball I could see TO having a 60/500/6TD type of season and being an asset for that offense.

  4. Good to see jimmyt continuing to make dumb comments on Patriot threads. I would think after embarassing himself yesterday claiming Bradford was a more accurate passer than TB he would find another thread to make a fool out of itself.

  5. I’m not the biggest fan of Owens. He has the distinction of being one of two 49er players I despised WHILE they played for the team, but that wasn’t because he lacked talent. His attitude has been poor at best, but I’m actually surprised he hasn’t gotten a shot SOMEWHERE. Even the Jets haven’t given him a look. Shocking.

    It was in 2005 not that long ago. I remember that game very well.

    Besides the Patriots have still won the most games of any team since their last Super Bowl win, not to mention the two AFC Championships and the only 16-0 season ever,

    Kind of puts things in perspective doesn’t it?

  7. As much as i’d like this guy to get a shot with the Pats… That is one thing that will never happen. Dude definitely lost a step but could be servicable somewhere.

  8. I admire TO’s perseverance. For a guy who has such an ego, it can be demoralizing to continue to get cut and be told you’re no longer good enough to play in the nfl. Most guys in his position would just pack it up and retire. It would be a great example of hard work paying off if he could somehow find his way onto the Pats roster.

    But it ain’t gonna happen.

  9. Just bring back Randy. He and Brady had amazing chemistry, and with a now more balanced offense, Moss will be the respected deep threat they’ve missed for 3 yrs since he left.
