PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Terrell Owens still thinks he can play in the NFL. And if he’s going to play in the NFL, he might as well play for the best.
“I think [playing for the Patriots is] a no-brainer. You look at what they’ve done over the years,” Owens told BlindSideFootball.com in an exclusive interview. “Under the tutelage of Tom and Coach Bellichick, I think the sky would be the limit in terms of what I’d be able to do. Considering my body of work and my history of playing the game.”
Owens worked out with Tom Brady a couple of weeks ago. Owens signed with the Seahawks prior to last season, but hasn’t played in the NFL since 2010.
“On the field, I feel like I have a lot to offer as far as my experience as I said earlier,” Owens said. “At this stage of my career, I feel that a lot of guys could learn just as I did throughout my career in my younger years. Personally, I still learned from a lot of guys as I played the game. I never felt like I knew everything there was about playing the receiver position. Because every receiver has different abilities: to get off the line, to run routes. So I could take a little something from different receivers’ routes and the way they play the game and apply it to my game. So, I’m always looking for something different that can be applicable to my skill-set.”
