Seattle says ‘See Ya’ to T.O.

It appears his chances to catch the records of Randy Moss are completely gone now. “I’m no longer a Seahawk,” Terrell Owens wrote on Twitter. “I THANK the organization 4 the opportunity, I’m truly blessed beyond belief. My FAITH is intact & will NOT waiver.”

Owens had signed a one-year deal with Seattle on August 7th after a workout that had coaches and staff members raving about how good he looked for someone who had not played an NFL game in more than 18 months; but his preseason performance was notable for the catches he failed to make. T.O. dropped a potential 46-yard touchdown pass against Denver on a perfect throw. He did not catch any of the five balls thrown to him and had another glaring drop against Kansas City on Friday night.

Owens was trying to make a comeback after not playing since Week 15 of the 2010 season while with Cincinnati. He sat out the 2011 season after he had an operation on his left knee and did not receive any offers. Where he goes now is anyone’s guess. Back to an alternate football league? Canadian? Arena? United Football League?

Megatron’s Megadeal

Johnson has signed an eight-year deal worth up to $132 million, making him the now-highest-paid receiver in the NFL. He had a year remaining on a deal he signed after being drafted in 2007, but this extension starts immediately and runs through the 2019 season.  Continue reading “Megatron’s Megadeal” Megatron’s Megadeal

Randy Moss working out as a 49er?

Am I the only San Francisco 49er fan that doesn’t want to see Randy Moss dress up in the red & gold?

I do not feel as if an aged veteran, arguably the 2nd best wide receiver in the history of football, has a place on the 49ers. Sure, SF lost to the (eventual Super Bowl winning) New York Giants with only 1 pass for 3 yards to a receiver. It’s common knowledge that Jed York, Jim Harbaugh, Trent Balke, and company will be looking for a few wideouts before the season starts. But folks, let’s go young. Let’s train rookies or go with some younger free agents.  Continue reading “Randy Moss working out as a 49er?” Randy Moss working out as…
