(9/18/2013) Free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens still has the itch to play football and is looking for his way back into the NFL, according to The Boston Globe.
"I just want to play because I know I’m still competitive," he said. "I can play at a productive level. And the thing is, the last two or three teams that I’ve played on, they brought up my age issue but there’s never really been a decline in my production. I know that there’s some character issues that teams are worried about that’s understandably noted, but I am a different person than I was 10 years ago."
One team Owens would like to play for is the Patriots.
"Tom Brady has a lot of young guys and I’m sure he could use some veteran help and I would love to play for a guy like Bill Belichick and play with a quarterback like Tom," Owens said. "They are going to try to win by [receiving] committee. Coach Belichick is a smart guy that has won with not necessarily a main receiver. Aside from when Randy [Moss] played there, they’ve really had a lot of guys to produce as a committee. That’s where I could possibly fit in. There’s a lot of teams I know that I could play for."
