Is Terrell Owens stalking Bears QB Jay Cutler?
Owens, not one to be shy, told the world on his Twitter account (via the Chicago Tribune) that he was going to confront Cutler about coming to Chicago after running into the Bears quarterback on Sunday night. Because, that wouldn’t be a diva-like, VH1 reality show way of handling things.
“@ underground!! Waiting on jay cutler 2 come n here 2 explain how I wouldn’t fit n their system!! Where u @ Jay?!” Owens wrote.
Oh, but he pulled the rug out from all of us, when he said it was merely a coincidence that he ran into Cutler and TE Greg Olsen in Chicago. Owens claims that he was in Chicago for business and he happened to run into Cutler and Olsen. Crisis averted.
“naww I’m n town 4 business! Just happened 2 run n2 jay,” Owens told the world.
Other news making its way Around the Web on a Monday:
- Patriots owner Bob Kraft told the Boston Herald that he is pulling for New York/New Jersey to get Super Bowl XLVIII. And why not? If the New York/New Jersey region gets the Super Bowl, that opens the door for other cold-weather regions like New England. And, if we can dream, how about a Super Bowl in Lambeau Field?
- Patriots WR Wes Welker told the Boston Herald that he is well aware of his Playboy image, as pictures of him and Ashley Dupre have made their way around the Web. “It’s funny, man,” Welker told the Herald. “I’ve been working so hard, and it’s like, ‘Oh, Wes is rehabbing at the Playboy Mansion or something.’ I’m like, ‘Dude, it’s one night.’ ”
- CB Antonio Cromartie is eager to impress at Jets camp, starting by showcasing his kick returning skills (via the Newark Star-Ledger). Coach Rex Ryan said that Cromartie will not be a full-time kick returner, but could be out there in certain situations.
- Ravens RB Le’Ron McClain is starting a campaign, “MCCLAIN 4 RB.” McClain went from team’s leading rusher in 2008 to blocker for Ray Rice on season later. McClain would like to get some more carries. Fantasy owners are saying: Please no. Seriously, do not give coach John Harbaugh that idea (via the Baltimore Sun).
