Terrell Owens preseason debut for the Seahawks was a mixed bag. While the 38-year old receiver showed he still has the wheels and 4.4 speed to burn younger, defensive backs, he also flashed a bit of the old Owens. Not the controversial T.O. persona but the physically imposing receiver with a propensity for dropping passes.
After getting two yards behind the coverage in the first half, Flynn dropped a perfect arching pass into Owens' outstretched arms as he crossed into the end zone. Unfortunately, Owens was unable to haul it in.
Flynn erred on his own as well after throwing a poor pass behind a Owens, who had created separation on a post route across the middle. Owens didn't make a fuss over either play but if Matt Flynn continues to throw passes behind Owens in the regular season, don't be surprised if Owens stirs up drama during the regular season. If he makes it there. According to CBSSports' NFL Insider Jason La Canfora, sources close to the Seahawks say Owens is not guaranteed a roster spot after failing to haul in any of Flynn's five targets.
