It has been nearly a year since Pro Bowl wide-receiver Terrell Owens suited up and played in the National Football League. The always-opinionated Owens is now back hoping to reclaim his throne as one of NFL’s elite receivers.
Owens signed to the Seattle Seahawks in a one-year deal reportedly worth $1 million, sources told ESPN’s Ed Werder. Owens reportedly wowed the Seahawks in an impressive Monday workout.
But workouts are a bit different than real-time play. Does Owens still have it?
It may very well depend Owen’s ability to stay healthy. The six-time Pro Bowler played for the Cincinnati Bengals during the 2011 season and was placed on injured reserve on Dec. 21, 2011.
Owens then suffered a torn ACL during the 2011 offseason and underwent surgery in April of that year.
There is no question of Owens’ talent. His track record is proven as he has many NFL records to call his own, including being the only player in NFL history to core 2 TDS against all 32 NFL teams.
During Owens’ prolific 2004 season with the Philadelphia Eagles, he managed to set a franchise record for most reception touchdown in a single season with 14.
Before Owens was placed on injured reserve with the Bengals, he managed to snag 72 receptions for 983 yards and nine touchdowns. Need we mention again that this was before he was injured?
Owens success will undoubtedly depend on whether he can stay healthy. It will also depend on whether he can maintain a positive attitude going into the season.
Following his workout on Monday night, Owens took to Twitter saying, “God is good. Thankful. Grateful. To ALL my new teammates & the “12th Man”… Let’s Do This!! ”
Let’s see if Owen can duplicate his success and do it for the Seahawks.
