The NFL has effectively blackballed the man. I really feel sorry for the guy and truly hope that he gets another shot - just not with the 49ers. But I have to say this is something he brought into himself. NFL teams are increasingly becoming less tolerant of TO-type personalities on their rosters, at least the good ones are at least. I think TO should count his lessons & blessings and look for another league to play in. He still has a lot left in the tank but the NFL is just not interested in him.
you are funny... owens has blackballed himself. he destroyed locker rooms and destroyed chemistry with garcia, mcnabb and romo. owens never wants to take responsibility and he also paints himself as the victim. I guess some of his fans , sad to say, feel the same way.you really think all the teams in the nfl got together on a cold dark rainy night and agreed not to give owens a look or a tryout? You really think that? Not only is he to much trouble and drama,, he is old, he drops balls and is coming off a major injury. There is no reason for us to even think about looking at him. Our coach says moss is not only doing well on the practice field but is a coach off of the field. we are much better with our current wide outs and why in the world would we ever take a step backwards in looking at owens. it will not and should not happen
This man does speak the truth. Doesn't mean we as a people need to hate Owens or laugh at his situation. I personally like the man, and think he has a decent person inside of him. He may very well have grown up by now and accepted the error of his ways. Still hard to respect the immaturity, selfishness, and failure as a father he portrays. So, no question... he has to sleep in this bed he made. If a team loses some key WRs to injury.... even if we (knock on wood) lose key WRs to injury... I would not mind us taking a look at him. If a team does pick him up, I'll wish him well, unless he starts acting a fool once more.
