There have been rumors about WR Terrell Owens reuniting with QB Donovan McNabb in Washington. For those of you who revel in trash TV, where shows such as “Jersey Shore” and the “Real Housewives of Topeka” reign supreme, this pairing would rival Bill Belichick and Eric Mangini sitting down together for Thanksgiving dinner.
Of course, killjoy McNabb debunked these rumors while talking to the Washington Post (or at least he says he hasn’t been lobbying the Redskins’ coaching staff to add Owens). But this is the NFL, where you never say never.
So Owens joined Stephen A. Smith on Fox Sports Radio (via Sports Radio Interviews) on Wednesday to talk about those rumors and said that he and McNabb have “some unfinished business.”
“I’ll say this and go on record and say it: If that is the case for me to go to Washington and for Donovan McNabb and we were to reunite, there would be some unfinished business,” Owens said. “I mean going to the Super Bowl and winning it.”
Owens added that drops aren’t a problem for him (really?), he might be getting older but he’s getting faster and the old receiver’s refrain that he wants to play for a contender with a good quarterback.
“I am not looking for a specific number of years as to play because I know my window as far as playing is very limited,” Owens said. “Personally, I feel like I could play for at least three more years. I would like to go to a team where I know they are going to be a contender, where I know they are going to have a good quarterback and where I know I can be effective.”
So a return to Buffalo or Oakland is out, but Washington looks like a good option. You have to figure this will come down to coach Mike Shanahan.
