Often embattled free agent WR, Terrell Owens could be looking to have a reunion with Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid.
Owens appeared on NFL AM this morning and was asked which teams he might see himself fitting in with in 2013.
And he named the Chiefs.
Though he obviously can’t be choosy at this stage, Owens explained his best fit would come with a team operating a West Coast offense. He cited the Minnesota Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs as options.
Owens has a good relationship with Vikings wide receivers coach George Stewart. The Chiefs are coached by Andy Reid, for whom Owens played on the Philadelphia Eagles.
Owens still feels he’s being punished for his antics earlier in his career.
“It’s all politics,” he said. “I think a lot of it has to do with my reputation, things that I’ve done early in my career. I’m a changed person. I’m a bit more mature then I was in years past and I think if anybody out there can look past that, and look what I can bring to the team than some of the things that happened in the past, I can look past it and maybe they could and I could go in and help a team develop some of those younger guys.”
While Owens was a great receiver at times in his career, his isn’t just on the wrong side of 30, he isn’t terribly far from being on the wrong side of 40! Being 39 and playing in the NFL might work for kickers and a few QBs but for a WR, I am not sure it is doable. Throw in Owens’ past of being a distraction and I am not sure any team is going to bite.
Then again, Tim Tebow still has a job as a QB so what do I know?
The Chiefs need to focus on developing Jonathan Baldwin, not on bringing in a washed-up receiver with character concerns.
What do you think, Addicts? Do you want TO in KC?
