First off, I am not a big fan of dishing out money towards free agents, nor do I usually speak out to sign free agents. Now a lot of us prefer to go after the best player available in the draft for obvious reasons. Free agency is usually to fill in the remaining holes of what we couldn't do in the draft. Unless of course you want to pay a hefty price. Now, the WR position is not a position of need. I don't think there are any WR's in the draft this year that can or will make our team better. However, Terrell Owens is on the market. Although we don't have a huge need for WR's, one thing TO has always done is score TD's. This is perhaps our offense's biggest flaw. We can march the ball down the field at ease, but then we can't punch it in the endzone as much as we would like. Often times we are settling for field goals in which Mason Crosby can't make. LOL. Ok, that part's not funny, but to be serious TO would be an excellent addition to our red zone offense. Not only will he spread the field along with Jennings and Finley, but his experience and size will help us score TD's instead of settling for field goals.
Of course TO is 36 years old. He is old for WR's, but he is still among the elite and appears to have matured. He kept his mouth shut in a dissapointing season at Buffalo. I firmly believe that his drop off in stats were because of the dysfunctional offense as opposed to his performance. After Cincinatti decided to sign ex Buc WR Antonio Bryant, that closed the door on TO. Following his visit there, TO twitted:
“I wanna thank Mike Brown & the coaching staff 4 the visit along w/the possible opportunity 2 play w/carson & 85. I enjoyed the visit.”
I know you’re not signing me, but I need everyone to see this so that they know I’ve changed my tune. Dude, I’m 36 and looking for a job.
It appears that Oakland will make a move for TO, but for some reason I don't think that is on TO's list of top teams to visit. I believe that if TO is given a chance in Green Bay, he will play to his expectations and he is a mature player now. So how would you feel about signing him?
