Casserly on Terrell Owens: 'I wouldn't sign him'

Terrell Owens, currently unemployed wide receiver, is slated to return to action from a torn ACL sooner rather than later. (He went as far as venturing to Korea for stem-cell treatment in order to get back on the field sooner -- it appears he'll be back faster than the originally-planned six months timeframe.)

But will anyone want him? CBS Sports Charley Casserly, speaking on The NFL Today, didn't say no one would want him, but he did say he, acting as a GM, wouldn't go after Owens. And Casserly had a few very specific reasons.

"I wouldn't sign him today," Casserly said Sunday. "When I go back to Cincinnati [film] last year, he wouldn't go across the middle, he wouldn't block. My sources in Cincinnati told me a couple things: he still had that selfish attitude and he's still a disruptive guy in the locker room. Not for me."


Owens could potentially provide some production for a team that desperately needs a wideout, but it's quite unlikely that a) anyone will pay him and b) any team that wasn't in the thick of a playoff hunt would bother.

And while there are a ton of teams still very much looking at a postseason berth, there are plenty of teams (Bills, Eagles, Cowboys, Bengals) that won't have any interest because they've already dealt with Owens.

In other words, there are probably a lot of general managers in the NFL who feel the same way as Casserly.
