Week 3 of the preseason is usually considered a dress rehearsal for players as most teams get a better idea of which players have the best shot at making the 53-man roster. Unfortunately for Terrell Owens, it appears his brief time with the Seattle Seahawks has come to an end after the team’s recent game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Owens took to Twitter on Sunday to announce the news that he’s no longer a member of the Seahawks–which shouldn’t come as a surprise considering the veteran wideout seemed to be on the roster bubble over the last week or so. Seattle knew it was a low risk to bring Owens on board with the type of money they were giving him and were hoping for a high reward if he returned to the dominant level he was at a few years ago, but it appears to be one of those situations where the team believes they can be better off without him.
Now, the main question lingering in the minds of football fans across the country is whether or not this is the last of Owens in the NFL. His options were already slim to begin with when it came to teams showing interest and considering Seattle seemed like his best shot–it’s unlikely any other team will bring Owens on board before the start of the regular season.
Of course, there’s always that slight chance a team in need of adding another wide receiver due to injury could come in to play down the road–so there’s still some hope for Owens to return to the big leagues after sitting out all of last season.
