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.

Palmer hates this guy's guts.  Palmer would probably retire again, even the Raiders are not that stupid to trade two 1st round picks for a QB and then piss that QB off.

That would be the only way this whole thing could get any funnier...Palmer retires to get away from certain players which T.O. was among, and then there's T.O. in Oakland hahahahahahaha

It was either Darren Woodson or Chris Carter on "Mike and Mike" this morning who said one of TO's problems is that he is not the mentor-type that a team could count on to bring along young receivers.  TO not a mentor-type?  Now THAT is an understatement.

The writing is on the wall TO, your NFL paydays are over.  But hey!  ESPN has hired every player who retired since 2005 so why not give them a call?

T.O. is coming off of 2 knee surgeries in the last 10 months.  He is 38 and has lost a step or 2 more after suffering this injury.  It is week 8, the season is half way over.  By the time he gets into game shape and learn enough of the system the season will be almost over.  If he is smart he would just shut it down this year and come back next year to give it one last shot.  Nobody is going to go out of their way to sign a 38 year old wr Coolin the middle of the season.

It's only a matter of time before teams will be knocking on T.O. door looking for a top-flight receiver,regardless of T.O. past relationships with the teams that he's played for. I don't expect for T.O. to hear from any of the teams that he has played for during his football career. People may not like T.O. for his antics,but they know deep in their hearts that he still can bring it on the football field..........PERIOD!!!!
