Last season, the Chicago Bears took a big step in the right direction in the passing game when they acquired Brandon Marshall from the Miami Dolphins to finally give Jay Cutler a reliable No. 1 wide receiver. Now, it appears another former star wideout would love the opportunity to play alongside Marshall and company for the 2013 season–Terrell Owens.
At this point, it should be no surprise to see Owens lobbying for a job with a team like the Bears considering he hasn’t played in a regular season game since 2010 when he was a member of the Cincinnati Bengals. Chicago could always use another weapon in the passing game, but there’s a reason why the Seattle Seahawks chose to release Owens last summer instead of giving him a shot during the regular season.
In other words–it would be a huge shock to see the Bears give Owens the chance he’s hoping for next season.
Even if Chicago were interested in a player like Owens, it would be pointless to bring him on board considering he would most likely be around for only one season. There are plenty of other great players with potential the Bears would be better off focusing on in the future and even if he does have a previous connection with Marc Trestman–that doesn’t mean Owens would be as effective for the 2013 season.
Owens can try to convince the Bears all he wants–but the chances of this happening are as slim as this writer landing a date with Lea Michelle.
