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.
