Here's an interesting thought (at least I think so)...
Terrell Owens will be a free agent since he only signed a one-year deal with the Bills. The Panthers are in need of another WR to complement Smitty, and it would most likely take 2-3 years before a rookie is ready to assume the role. Would it be a good idea to sign T.O. to a 2-3 year deal as a bridge to a rookie WR pick?
Think about it: T.O. still has game. Sure, he's slipped over the past few years, but he would be better than putting a rookie in and just hoping for the best. He's not the dominate force that he once was, and he's not going to be a #1 receiver, but he could be a great #2 on the opposite side of Smitty.
I know he has problems getting along with teammates (especially quarterbacks), but in most cases his gripes come when his team isn't playing well (or when he isn't getting the ball). Do you guys think he is worth the risk? He may be a locker room distraction from time to time, but he has never done anything illegal or given any problems other than the occasional whining that most primadonna receivers in the league give.
I think he might be worth a look. Anyone who has thoughts on the matter feel free to add them in the comments.
