Owens, who was comically fired by the iconic Allen Wranglers last spring for a “lack of effort both on and off the field,” hasn’t competed in an NFL regular season contest since suffering a torn ACL in April 2011.
“I played my first early years in San Francisco with [Trestman] and shortly after that, he left to do some things,” said Owens, 39, who has managed to alienate six franchises since being taken by the 49ers out of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga with the 89th pick in the 1996 NFL Draft. “To think about [Brandon Marshall] on the other side and me on one side, that’s really dangerous. I’m keeping myself in shape just for any opportunity that may come about.”
The 6-foot-3, 225 pound Owens, a five-time All-Pro selection and member of the NFL 2000s All-Decade Team, has caught an astounding 1,078 passes for 153 touchdowns in 219 games as a professional.
Unfortunately for the hydrocodone lover, who was nearly sent to jail in July for being in excess of $20,000 behind child support payments for his seven-year-old daughter, Owens is a worthless statistics compiler with zero concept of how to partner with others.
Finishing 10-6 in the NFC North and being led by Kristin Cavallari’s unlikable banging companion, it would be “really dangerous” for Trestman and the Bears to even consider Owens.
To compete for their first Vince Lombardi Trophy since 1985, Marc Trestman should blow away the thought of Terrell Owens receiving a paycheck in “The Windy City.”by
