Would the Steelers Even Think About Terrell Owens?


The Steelers have some issues at the WR spot, I think that is something we can agree upon. But the thought of the team making a rather unlike Steeler move and getting a player like Terrell Owens scares me to death.

Which is why when I saw the article from Sporting News about 10 possible landing spots for Owens and the Steelers were on there, it made me cringe. Nevertheless, here’s what Sporting News has to say about the Steelers and T.O.:

With Super Bowl 43 MVP Santonio Holmes long gone and Super Bowl 40 MVP Hines Ward not getting any younger, the Steelers would benefit from whatever T.O. has left in the tank.

If Owens wants to join a contender and get a shot at a Super Bowl ring, maybe Owens would drop his asking price for a chance to play in Pittsburgh. But the Steelers have to be willing to take a chance on a guy with a checkered past, and given their quarterback with a checkered present, it’s probably too much of a risk.

    Attitude aside, Terrell is an awesome receiver – if the Steelers have any cash left over and want a good chance to have a deep threat – Terrell is a good a prospect as anyone else. I am also imagining the potential verbal matchup between him and Chad 85!

    TO is one of the best receivers of all time no one can deny that but i dont wanna see him in a steeler jersey too much is already being made of the steelers year this year we dont need anymore attention plus he really dont have too much left i think the best place for TO would be washington i think it’s the best place for him to find players motivated like he is most are late in their careers and are looking for that last magical season him and mcnabb have apperently made up and he would make a great compliment to santana moss throw in chris cooley thats a decent receiving core and we know mcnabb and TO will have some extra motivation for when they play dallas and philly
