Even though he indicated last week that he would consider retirement if he failed to play in the NFL during the 2013 season, wide receiver Terrell Owens is still doing everything in his power to convince a team to at least give him a chance. For starters, Owens is a few months away from hitting 40 years of age and hasn’t played in a regular season game since 2010 when he was a member of the Cincinnati Bengals, but that doesn’t mean the controversial wideout doesn’t have a few teams in mind when it comes to who he believes would make a good fit.
Apparently, Owens sees the Kansas City Chiefs as a good fit–which would be quite ironic considering he would be reunited with former head coach Andy Reid. Philadelphia Eagles fans remember how things played out the last time Reid and Owens were working together, so if he thinks the head coach would consider a move like this again–he’s crazy.
There was a time when Owens had one of the best work ethics in the NFL, but even if he is still in decent enough shape to compete for a roster spot–a team would have called the wideout by now if they were really interested in signing him. Owens can push for the Chiefs to give him a chance all he wants and even though this team finished with a disappointing 2-14 record last year–Reid and company are smart enough to realize this wouldn’t be in their best interest.
