Terrell Owens Hosts Open Practice For NFL Scouts But None Show Up
NFL Wide Receiver, now free agent, Terrell Owens held his own practice for all NFL scouts and teams on Tuesday with an open invitation. The only problem was, no one showed up.
Though that didn’t hurt the 37 year olds confidence at all, “I definitely feel there are some teams out there that are interested,” he told ESPN.
Owens who played for the Cincinnati Bengals last season played in 14 games catching 72 balls for 983 yards. Though despite an off year he wouldn’t be resigned or picked up by any team. Then in April things would get even worse for Owens as he would tear his anterior cruciate ligament forcing him to undergo surgery.
Though months later after the injury Owens looked fine and felt fine, “I felt very comfortable out there,” Owens told ESPN after the workout. Owens participated in some drills and caught passes Tuesday in his workout that was televised on both ESPN and the NFL Network. Owens didn’t do anything else.
And unlike his last “open practice” which he held last time in his drive way when he was playing for the Philadelphia Eagles, Owens this time was clothed. Wearing a shirt that said “I am” on the front and “ready” on the back was showcased by Owens during the beginning of the workout until he ended up eventually taking it off.
The quarterback throwing Owens the ball was Casey Harsen, a former quarterback at Norfolk State and a former Arena Football player.
Agent Drew Rosenhaus told ESPN and reporters that he plans to send the tape of Owens’ workout to all of the 32 NFL teams after the workout, showing that there are no worries for the empty crowd at the Owens’ camp.
Owens wasn’t shaken by the empty bleachers either as he said that his workout “speaks for itself.”
“I only need one team,” Owens told the NFL Network. “I only need one chance.”
Besides who cares if none of the NFL Scouts showed up anyways, it’s just practice…not a game…not a game. Yes, that’s right Allen Iverson it’s just practice. So NFL Scouts, get your popcorn ready because Owens’ workout tape is getting ready to give you guys a show.
