Terrell Owens hints he would have made a difference for the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game against the Cincinnati Bengals
CINCINNATI— Terrell Owens still thinks he can make a difference in the NFL.
The Hall of Fame wide receiver hasn’t played in the league since 2010, but admits he tried to join the Kansas City Chiefs last season.
“I talked a lot, from time to time, with Andy Reid, who coached me when I was in Philadelphia. I was blowing up his phone throughout . I’m like, ‘Dude, let me in. Take me there. You know what I mean ?'” Owens told the Pat McAfee Show. “There was no production [from Gordon]. You look at the last game they played… they’re in the red zone, as I mentioned. Third down, red zone situation – Patrick Mahomes, he couldn’t find anyone in the red zone. You are inserting me into this offence, this is where I just said I would be useful. You had Tyreek Hill, you have Travis Kelce. You put me on the other side of this formation. Someone has to commit to one side or the other because ultimately I’m going to open up. I’m going to be a viable option, just like Travis Kelce will be at close range and Tyreek Hill.”
Ironically, Owens hasn’t played in the NFL since 2010, when he was a member of the Bengals. The 48-year-old spent training camp with the Seahawks in 2012 but was released before the start of the regular season.
Looks like he wants one more chance to make a list.
“As I said, it must be a very unique situation for me and obviously a good opportunity,” Owens said. “I know I can come and contribute.”
