At 1PM Central today, the artist formerly (and currently) known as T.O. will be doing a public workout on NFL Network.
Did you know that if you go to look up Owens’ stats on NFL.com, you have to search under “historical players”. That statement may be all too telling, or maybe it’s too far from the truth. Last season, with the lowly Bengals, Owens finished with 72 receptions for 983 yards and 9 TD’s. If I told you that the Titans could invest in a relatively cheap free agent wideout and get that kind of production then you’d probably be all for it. The fact that it’s T.O. the team-wrecker changes things.
Honestly though, I’ve never played with Owens and it’s possible the disruption of team chemistry was blown out of proportion. The odd thing is that it had to have happened multiple times.
You make the call.
