Just when you thought Terrell Owens was an afterthought in the world of fantasy football, it looks like he’s back on the old landscape. But is he really going to be a factor?
The 38-year-old wide receiver has agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks, according to NFL Network contributor and FOXSport insider Jay Glazer. Owens, who hasn’t played a down in the NFL since 2010, looked good in a recent workout with the team.
In fact, he reportedly ran a sub-4.5 second 40-yard dash in his Monday tryout.
Does that mean he’ll be a fantasy superstar once again? Not a chance, not at his age and coming off an anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. But much like Randy Moss with the San Francisco 49ers, I wouldn’t mind kicking the tires on T.O. somewhere in the late rounds as a No. 4 or 5 fantasy wideout.
If Owens does in fact make the final roster, I’d struggle to promote any of Seattle’s growing receiving corps — a list that includes Sidney Rice, Golden Tate, Doug Baldwin, Braylon Edwards and Kellen Winslow — as more than late-round fantasy football reserves.
