Terrell Owens blew the Seattle Seahawks away in his scheduled workout with the team yesterday and they rewarded him with a one year deal. Owens is in line to make the veteran’s minimum over the course of the year ($925,000). With the Seahawks signing of Braylon Edwards a few weeks back, a training camp competition for a roster spot could be on tap for the two former Pro Bowlers.NFL-AtL’s Dan Hanzus has the scoop:
Though lights-out training camps could allow both to make the team, we’d be surprised if both Owens and Edwards are in uniform by Week 1. Neither play special teams, so they’ll have to make up for that lack of versatility by showing off their playmaking skills of yesteryear. Our money’s on Edwards, but perhaps it’s time to get out of the business of writing off T.O.
The Seahawks clearly were no enamored with their depth at wide receiver, so it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if both of these veterans made the final roster. With head coach Pete Carroll holding a three-way competition for the starting quarterback job between incumbent Tarvaris Jackson, newly signed free agent acquisition Matt Flynn and rookie third round pick Russell Wilson, preseason in Seattle just got a whole lot more interesting.
