Rams in 'serious pursuit' of Terrell Owens?

Suddenly, Terrell Owens it seems, is quite popular. With at least one team (and maybe a second!) anyway; according to multiple reports -- beginning with ESPN's Chris Mortensen and followed by Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio -- the St. Louis Rams are in "serious pursuit" of Owens' services.

Of course, the rumors that the Bengals are interested in Owens continue despite the fact that reports to the contrary have emerged from Cincy. (Quick caveat: this is the Bengals we're talking about, and Owens has caused trouble before, so ruling them out is technically almost impossible until he actually signs elsewhere.)

We addressed the plus/minus situation with the Bengals earlier: Upside is Carson Palmer's been working out with Owens and Ochocinco loves him, downside is forcing TO into a slot role, not to mention the old axiom of "not enough passes to go around."

The Rams would pose no such problems, with Donnie Avery currently occupying the No. 1 wide receiver role. However, they wouldn't fit with his desire to play for a contender and there would be some concerns about adding a potentially poisonous Owens to a young, rebuilding team that won't likely be competing for a playoff spot.

Then again, both Steve Spagnuolo and Pat Shurmer worked with Owens in Philadelphia, so maybe they believe that bringing in Owens would be a benefit to the team overall.

Update (5:34): Jason LaCanfora of NFL.com has a Rams source who "scoffed" at the report of the Rams' interest in Owens and called it "overzealous."
