Terrell Owens Names Chiefs As Possible Fit

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?

    No! That is the last thing that the Chiefs need and a complete waste of money!

  • DTVTechGuy

    Yeah… Another washed up distraction.

    Thanks but….

  • Calchiefsfan

    No way!

  • Calchiefsfan

    The funny thing is, he’s not a changed man. The fact that he says he is proves he’s still in denial refusing to man up. He’s still getting into trouble to this day.

  • Jeremy Gill

    The guy is washed up! I think its funny how he said he has matured but wasnt it last yr that a cfl team gave him the boot for his unmature antics??

    • P Heitman

      Plus he’s 39…how much more can a middle-aged man mature? That’s something a 24 year old guy says after two years in the league.

  • berttheclock

    As I tried to vote over at the Star, “Hell NO”.
    Of course, the NYC media would be torn between providing extra coverage to NE and the Chiefs.

  • Travis Forsyth

    T.O to kc?? AH HELL NO!!!

  • Bosco Cletus

    I’ll pass thanks.

  • calciomoti


  • BWrangler

    No, he’s a cancer in the locker room and he squandered his best playing days doing it all for himself. I’ll take a young, hungry, wide receiver of lesser talent but is willing to play his role over this washed up “Me Me!”

    Capitol f…that!!!!!

  • cyberry

    Under Reid.. Owens was suspended for 4 games and deactivated for the rest of the season..then released the following year for misconduct that was detrimental to the team…. there is no chance…

  • d-block


  • Michael Shaw

    Yeah Bowe is immature enough without being taught by TO!!! HELL NO!!!!

    • Jason Seibel

      Wait..what? How is Bowe immature?

      • Michael Shaw

        Until Todd Haley got a hold of him he had been very immature, maybe not so much now, but my point is we DON’T need him returning to those ways with TO “teaching him”!!

  • Stacy D. Smith

    Owens has been out of football 2+ years now. Not sure he has anything left. I’d rather have Austin Collie or Brandon Lloyd.

    • P Heitman

      Wow, those two are still available? I had no idea. Both would look nice in red.

  • Jim Harper

    No No & Hell No! I would like to see the Chiefs take a look at Brandon Lloyd though. I understand that they have to give Baldwin a chance and Avery may turn out great as well, but Lloyd would be a great compliment to Bowe. He has 11 years experience so is a little long in the tooth, but still producing at a high level. In 2012 with the Patriots he had 74 receptions for 911 yards and 4 td’s and played all 16 games. Also he was born in KC. Never been a problem in the locker room either.

  • ArrowFan

    I’m getting the impression some of you don’t like the idea of TO.

  • Pessimisticchiefsfan

    I want Owens. Can’t be worse than Baldwin and would get him for next to nothing.

  • jimfromkcj

    I would have to add an emphatic NO. He has had chance after chance and squandered them all.

  • Altarium

    Maybe AND ONLY MAYBE if we got him super cheap. Some real lowball offer he’d be desparate enough to bite on; somewhere in 6 figures. But then there’s the time you’d likely be wasting on him. Even if he agreed to try and make the roster pro bono, I’d be hesitant in spending the time on him that could be better spent on any of our other players!

    • 417chiefsfan

      We could definitely get him super cheap. The guy was doing some horrific celebrity diving reality show at one point. He will literally sign for anything…I mean anything.

      I just can not believe there are not more people that think we should give one of the all-time great receivers a shot. If he proves to be a problem you cut him. Problem solved. For god sakes people if Tim Tebow can still get a job without being able to throw a football much better than any of us you’d think HOF WR should at least get at shot to go to camp.

      People seem to forget that Randy Moss caused as much if not more drama, while also admitting that he “took plays off” and Moss got chance after chance with no one complaining. Meanwhile lack of hard work is the absolute last criticism you can make about TO. The guy still ran I think it was a 4.45 40 last year for the Seahawks.

      The guy knows it’s his absolute last chance so if he comes in and still acts like a diva jackass send him packing. No harm no foul. I just cant see a downside to giving him a chance.

      • Altarium

        Good points. I guess I should give Reid and Dorsey some credit and assume they’d have no problem cutting him if it’s clearly not going to work out.

        • 417chiefsfan

          Thank you. I’m glad to know that there is someone out there who can agree with me…lol

  • RepOurChiefs

    Did you want to be in KC in your prime Mr Diva? No! Chiefs dont want or need you. G’day sir………I SAID GOOD DAY!!!- n my best fez voice
