Default T.O to the Arena Football League?

http://chicago.sbnation.com/2011/10/...ract-offer-afl

The Arena Football League's Chicago Rush have offered former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens a one-year contract after he failed to garner offers from any NFL team.

Oct 26, 2011 - Recently, wide receiver Terrell Owens held a public workout where he not only struggled, but didn't even have a single NFL team attend. So understandably, there hasn't been a whole lot of interest in the 37-year-old's services lately. Maybe that lack of interest is only limited to the NFL, though, as the Arena Football League's Chicago Rush have offered Owens a one-year contract for the 2012 season.

Announced in a press release, the Rush are hoping to lure the once-elite wide receiver to the AFL now that his opportunities at the sport's highest level appear to be dwindling.

Terrell would absolutely complement our current wide receiving corps. His animated and over-the-top energy would be an excellent addition to our locker room, and the Chicago fans would undoubtedly welcome him here in Chicago.

That's a quote in the press release from Rush head coach Bob McMillen, presumably one of the key people pushing for the Rush to acquire Owens. It's hard to disagree with his assessment of Owens' possible value, though, as the receiver managed to take in 72 receptions for 983 yards and 10 touchdowns last season with the Cincinnati Bengals. In the wide-open, fast-paced style used in the AFL, Owens could potentially thrive even as he nears his 40th birthday.
