After spending Wednesday working out with Tom Brady at USC, speculation is beginning to heat up about the possibility of Terrell Owens joining the New England Patriots for the 2013 season. The last time Owens played a single game during the regular season came in 2010 when he was a member of the Cincinnati Bengals and it may sound crazy, but could the Patriots be interested in the potential Hall of Fame wide receiver after all?
Throughout his career, Owens has proven to have one of the best work ethics in the NFL and could make a nice addition for a New England team that could use some help in the wide receiver department after losing Wes Welker to the Denver Broncos. Still, Owens’ work ethic doesn’t come without the controversy of what he’s brought to the locker room throughout his career–so that could hold him back from joining a team like the Patriots.
Then again, New England has proven over the years they’re willing to take a risk on just about any player and if Brady can establish a connection with Owens during these workouts–it could open up a possible door for the 2013 season. Of course, there’s no reason to make a big deal over this just yet considering it was just a workout during the offseason–which is common for NFL players.
If Brady and Owens are still working out a few weeks from now–then it may be time to speculate the possibility of them becoming teammates next season. On the bright side, at least Owens would be more productive than Chad Johnson during the 2011 season.
