Terrell Owens hosted an open workout for NFL teams at a local Calabasas, California high school Tuesday.
The problem is, no NFL teams brought the popcorn to watch T.O. put on a show.
Owens, who wore a shirt reading I Am on the front and Ready on the back, ran routes and did agility tests, appearing capable of running and cutting without any problems with his surgically repaired knee.
However, that doesn't necessarily mean no one is interested in Owens. Coaches, general managers and scouts could have watched the workout on TV, and teams bring in veteran free agents for workouts all the time. This makes it possible that Owens will still get an individual workout.
The 37-year-old wide receiver has been hoping to join an NFL team this year. While his age may be one concern, most teams will question the condition of the left ACL he received surgery on earlier this year. However, Owens has always maintained that when healthy, he is still able to produce on the field, despite previous injuries.
Owens' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, claims that the Tennessee Titans are interested in the six-time Pro Bowler. Titans coach Mike Munchak said last week that the amount of the Titans' interest in Owens would hinge on a couple of factors: how the Titans are producing at the wide receiver position three weeks or two weeks from that point and how the team is doing overall. At 3-3, the Titans don't seem in need just yet.
Owens has played for the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals in his 15-year NFL career. Most recently, with the Bengals, he was placed on injured reserve for the first time in his career on Dec. 21 of last year when he tore meniscus cartilage in his left knee on Dec. 19 against the Cleveland Browns in week 14.
Despite his off-the-field antics, Owens holds a handful of receiving records. Most notably, he is tied for second all-time in receiving touchdowns (153) with Randy Moss, trailing only Jerry Rice, and he is also second all-time in receiving yards (15,934) behind, yes you guessed it, Jerry Rice.
