Carroll Hits The Snooze Alarm On Owens Rumors

New, 1 comment

There is no way to praise a player as much as Carroll did, nor a way to fit in the phrase “at this time”, while still successfully killing a rumor. So, Pete Carroll’s latest comments about Terrell Owens do not really dispel rumors, which can only be done through clear phrasing and a surgical strike on Bleacher Report home offices, as much as communicate that Carroll is done talking about Owens, at this time.

It’s a prudent move. Seattle has amassed some intriguing talent at wide receiver, but short of T.J. Houshmandzadeh, the Seahawks do not have a receiver that can be expected to play as well as Owens can be in 2010. And Touraj is recovering from off-season surgery.

So, now that Carroll has confirmed a friendly demeanor towards and appreciation of Terrell Owens, what would it take for not at this time to become at this time?

1. Slow recovery or further injury to Housh.
↵2. Mike Williams re-busts.
↵3. Slow development of Golden Tate.

Those are probably the principle three. If Seattle has an embarrassing preseason showing passing the ball, that also might prompt a follow up.

Anyway, this story is alive and well if maybe sleeping in until mid-August.
