Go ahead Ravens – you can have him

The Ravens seem to have their eyes on a bunch of aging players that they think are going to be the key to making a run at the Super Bowl next season. Earlier today the rumor had them interested in former Eagles RB Brian Westbrook, and now there are reports they are interested in mouthy wide out Terrell Owens, who will be a free agent come next week.

“We’re interested in T.O.,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said at the Scouting Combine. “We’re interested in all the guys who can make us better.”

Would Owens really make the Ravens all that better? He showed signs of age throughout 2009 while playing for the underachieving Bills, and now a trip to Baltimore isn’t going to revive his career in anyway. To me, it’s always funny how teams think a name player that has had better days will change their fate.

While I think if Westbrook ends up in Baltimore it could help them, but he has to stay healthy. As for Owens, his best days are long gone, and if the Ravens want to spend a decent amount of money on him, which is what it’s gonna take, and have to put up with his mouth – go right ahead.

    I would love to see T.O in Baltimore. He would just help bring our rivals down a notch because he is a whining, unproductive, overrated cancerous growth on any team he plays for! Go ahead Ravens, pay him! I would rather see T.O in Baltimore than Westbrook. Westbrook, when healthy, is a dangerous weapon. T.O will have some moments, but for the most part, he is finished.

    Thomas, do you really think T.O will be an asset to your Ravens? Has he ever ben an asset? Maybe an ASShole, but not ASSet! Is he more dependable or even as good as a Hines Ward? Seriously bro, you can have him.

    I think he could be the dude can still play say what you want about his character. I in favor for anything thats help the ravens get to the next level whether thats t.o or someone else i up for it. T.O showed maturity last year you didn’t hear a peep our of him.

    Not hearing a peep out of him. Is that how he is defined now? Not numbers,drops, TD’s? Was he quiet becasue he didnt produce? Maybe he just sulked and stewed because he is realizing that as his career winds down, so do his SuperBowl/Hall of Fame chances.

    A “great” WR like T.O should make average QB’s better players, shouldnt he? Did he elevate his game to help his “poor” QB’s? doubtful. Maybe Im wrong, but it just seems that T.O is more reputation now. More sizzle than steak!
