Buffalo Says Goodbye To T.O.

NORTH CAROLINA (BASN) — He has played for the San Francisco 49ers.

He has also played for the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys.

But this past Friday, the Buffalo Bills released the 37-year-old Terrell Owens, who caught 55 passes for 829 yards and five touchdowns last year.

So where does T.O. go from here?

Chad “Ocho Cinco”is lobbying for his friend to join the Cincinnati Bengals, who have developed a reputation over the years for taking chances with some of the outlaws of the NFL.

For instance, Head Coach Marvin Lewis gave Cedric Benson an opportunity to prove himself two years ago after several people felt that his career was over.

However, Lewis’ faith in Benson paid off big time. The former No. 1 pick (4th overall in 2005 by Chicago) rushed for 1,251 yards last season.

But will having T.O.

and Ocho Cinco on the same team be too much for Marvin Lewis to handle? With that in mind, will the Bengals take a chance with T.O?

Or will T.O go to the Baltimore Ravens, who desperately need to improve their wide receiver core which consists of Elroy Roy, Justin Harper, Kelly Washington and Maurice Smith.

For this reason, T.O., who despite being 37-years-old, can help the Ravens lackluster passing attack which is led by Joe Flacco, who in 2009 threw for 3,613 yards with 21 TDs.

Even though, Owens could help the Ravens, many people feel his “bad” attitude will destroy the team chemistry in Baltimore.

Despite his sideline outbursts, lunatic loudmouth lock room behavior, and media meltdowns, he has been a model citizens off the field with no arrests or problems with the law unlike newly acquired Donte’ Stallworth.

So to be truthful, T.O, is not a troublemaker. He simply wants to win.

And let’s not forget, the 15-year veteran has 1,008 career receptions (sixth all-time) and 144 touchdowns (third all-time). Therefore, if any team has the guts to hire him, they will be the winners in the end.
