New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has been tossing a few passes to one of the NFL's best all-time receivers.
Check this out from the league's Gregg Rosenthal:
The recent developments in Terrell Owens' life have been depressing rather than entertaining. But the NFL's second-leading receiver in career touchdowns isn't giving up hope of getting a job.
He even has a few high-profile quarterbacks trying to help him.There is so much to love about this information. First are the panicked New Orleans Saints fans who will read some "Brees-to-Owens" headlines somewhere. (And their fears Owens will convert Drew Brees to the dark side.) And then there is the Kyle Boller connection.
Way back in 2004, the San Francisco 49ers tried to trade Owens to the Baltimore Ravens. But he helped to scuttle an agreed-upon deal with the help of an arbitrator in part because they didn't have a good starting quarterback. Their quarterback at the time: Kyle Boller.Now Owens and Boller are working together, hoping for one last gig.
UPDATE: It appears that Chase Daniel, Sean Canfield and Darren Sproles also got in on the action. After the sesssion Daniel tweeted "Great throwing session w @DrewBrees C. Palmer, Boller, Canfield, @DarrenSproles today! @TerrellOwens even joined n on fun! Thumb is good!"
Now, will someone give Owens a chance? I don't see the Saints doing so, as they have plenty of wide receiver options. Which NFL team would be the best fit?
I got Atlanta. Give the guy a one-year deal. The team can't seem to get over the hunt, maybe a chance of scenario will do it for the former 49er. Thoughts?
