Terrell Owens Agrees to One Year Deal With Seahawks

Terrell Owens has agreed to a one year deal with the Seattle Seahawks. The 38-year old future Hall of Famer was not re-signed by the Bengals following a surprisingly decent 2010 campaign in which he had 72 catches for 983 yards and 9 touchdowns, and after tearing his ACL in training that offseason, he couldn't get an NFL team to bite. He was out of football in 2011 except for a brief stint with the Allen Wranglers for the IFL.

Owens, 6'3, 224 pounds, reportedly ran a sub-4.5 40 yard dash on Monday in his workout for the Seahawks, an astounding number for a 38-year old one year removed from a torn ACL. He'll now compete for a spot on the Seahawks 53-man roster with the likes of Ricardo Lockette, Kris Durham, Braylon Edwards, and even Golden Tate as a physical, outside deep threat.

Owens, though pretty much constantly surrounded by controversy over his 15-year NFL career, is a six-time Pro Bowler, five-time All Pro, a member of the NFL 2000's All Decade Team, and a holder dozens of NFL records for receiving. This seems like a low-risk move for the Seahawks, and right in line with their M.O. This front office likes competitive types with chips on their shoulder and/or something to prove, and T.O. has that in spades. Not only does Owens still believe he can play in the NFL at a high level, he has financial motivation to stick with the team. He's apparently been working very hard to get himself back into playing shape, a success that is evidenced by his shocking workout today in which several Seahawks receivers tweeted their positive impressions.

Seattle Seahawks, Terrell Owens Could Agree To Contract Soon

The Seattle Seahawks brought Terrell Owens to their town this weekend, and now they could be on the verge of getting him to sign with them. Ed Werder of ESPN has initial the report that both sides are trying to get a contract done as soon as possible.

Owens missed the entire 2011 season because no team wanted to take a risk on his leg injury. Owens hasn't played in the league since 2010, when he was with the Cincinnati Bengals. Owens had 72 receptions for 983 receiving yards and nine touchdowns that season, so he's proven he can still be productive, and apparently he's still able to run at top speed (clocking 4.45 seconds during his visit).

And it should be noted that Owens might be signed for training camp, but he's no guarantee at all to make the 53 man roster. It'd just be one more chance for Owens to show that he can still be a productive member of an NFL team before he heads to retirement.

Talk about Owens with Seahawks fans by heading on over to Field Gulls.
