Rosenhaus: No NFL teams called about T.O. yet

The good news for Terrell Owens? He's got an offer on the table. The bad news? It's from the AFL's Chicago Rush, as our own Mike Freeman wrote earlier today.

And according to Owens agent, Drew Rosenhaus, that might be the only offer he gets for a while, since no NFL times have called him about bringing on Owens.

"No, I haven’t [received any calls] and I don’t think teams are just going to bang down our door," Rosenhaus said on ESPN Radio, via Michael David Smith at PFT. "I think they will continue to evaluate this. It may take another injury. It may take a team to lose another game. It might take a team that has a receiver go down or whose offense struggles further, or for a veteran quarterback to come in and say, 'I want Terrell Owens on my football team.'"

This shouldn't be too big a shock, considering the entire NFL no-showed Owens workout in California.

But Rosenhaus said he wasn't concerned about whether or not teams were expressing interest because, eventually they would, and he guaranteed that "all 32 teams were paying attention" to Owens workout on Tuesday. This is probably true, considering it was broadcast live by the NFL Network.

But I'm not so sure that the receiver will ever be in demand. Owens will be 38 in December, he's just a few months removed from a serious knee injury, he won't exactly be dirt cheap, and he's a known problem in the locker room.

Eliminate the teams he's played for in his career (the Eagles, Cowboys, Bengals, 49ers and the Bills) and there's scant few contenders that might want to sign the veteran.

And even if a contender desperately needs a receiving threat, there's no guarantee that Owens is even the best option available.

  I don't understand why so much animosity about the "Arena posts".  He got an offer, it's the only offer and it happens to be an Arena team, which is kind of "funny/sad" and people are reporting that.  To me it's no big deal, I think they aren't necessarily concentrating on it but do keep mentioning it because it is kind of a slap towards him but face it, that's what the public wants....

Watch for the Raiders to pick him up if they lose a receiver.  If only, just because he had a little bit of chemistry with Palmer last year.

Everyone needs to get off this guys back. He is a hall a fame player who can still out shine Wr's at 38. The worst thing this guy does is talk $H!+. Really? We have players fighting dogs, assulting women, beating their wives, getting beat by their wives, driving drunk hitting people, selling weed, shooting themselves and carring guns into clubs and hes a bad guy becasue hes a jerk? Get off your high horse as you do the same thing hes doing. Buncha punks in the NFL and you are a bunch of baby back hippocrits who would ask for his autograph if you ever saw him.

If Brandon LaFell wasn't coming on so well.  I wouldn't mind seeing him line up opposite to Steve Smith. That would virtually guarantee someone is going to be single covered.

You can bark 38 all that you want but T.O. is in terrific shape and will still be a threat. 

Sadly Carolina does not need the distraction or I would say GO FOR IT.

I think he'll find a job.

  Remember this ?   T.O. tells Carson, " Fool, you might as well throw me the ball every play 'cause I will still be playing ball when you are washed up and can't even find a job with the AFL !  "

Ahhhh,  memories !

Remember the saying; What goes around, comes around. Well TO, it has come back around. Your big mouth and unsubstantiated attitude have come back to slap you in the face. How does it feel? You have been such a butt whipe your whole career and now you can deal with the lack of love in  your corner. It's kind of nice to see since you thought you were god's gift to football. AH's like you the NFL does not need and while your at it, take Ocho-stinko with you.

TO's "best behavior" is still terrible.  I root for guys like this to fail.  If he would have just played football at a high level and left all of the spectacle out of his career, he could probably be mentioned with some of the greats. Now, all people will hear is how he was a real douchebag, oh, but he had great stats. Defending this guy while there are quality players that set the table for him like Jerry Rice out there is insane. CBS, keep putting stories like this out there so maybe some kids will see how acting like a tool serves a gifted athlete at the end of his career.  Maybe we can get back to guys scoring touchdowns and giving the ball to the ref again.

He looked pretty decent, I'm sure someone will sign him due to a need or a team that wants to become releavant/boost attendence. TO will be on his best behavior.

I think a team (NFL) should and will sign him, regardless of what peopkle say he has pure talent just look at his career stats the numbers don't lie.
