Terrell Owens Works Out, Nobody Cares

When 37-year-old Terrell Owens held a workout yesterday to show that he was ready to come back from a major knee injury, no NFL teams showed up. Sure, the workout was hyped by agent Drew Rosenhaus and media was there, but no teams even bothered to send a scout.

Without a doubt there is a buzz surrounding the workout and chances are some teams desperate for a receiver could use Owens. After all, he had a good season last year in Cincinnati catching 72 passes for 983 yards and nine touchdowns. But a knee injury to a receiver in his late 30s can be a big deal.

According to ESPN, Owens and Rosenhaus plan on sending the workout tape to all 32 teams hoping for a bite from one of them. There is a slight buzz that Oakland with newly acquired former Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer could be interested, but that is only speculation at this point.

It's going to either take an injury or desperation for a team to make a move for Owens at this point in the season. With Owens' track record for being a locker room distraction, I don't see many teams that are legitimately interested in bringing him in, but stranger things have happened.
