    Terrell Owens is out on the market and could he be a late season pickup for the Texans. He could add depth to our recieving core ! Andre should be back within a month it seems but would be nice to have some insurance. TO is proven to produce on the field.

    If his legs still work, maybe. He tore his ACL some time ago, and I'm not sure where he is in recovering.

    Still not 100% after reconstructive surgery on his knee. He claims he'll be ready to play in "a month or less." Andre will be back by that time.

    Nearly 38 years old. STRIKE ONE!

    Recovering from major surgery. STRIKE TWO!

    He's Terrell Owens. STRIKE THREE!

    Pass.

    Dunno where you got that but its totally false - TO is a very willing and very good blocker .... now if this thread was about Randy Moss .... you woulda been right.


    If TO is healthy I'd damn sure kick the tires ..... see how he fits in. This is a veteran lead team with a competent QB (If far from perfect). Something TO has never really had .... Unless you wanna call McNabb competent when he's puking on the field.

    I agree on TO's blocking. Go back and watch Garrison Hearst's 99 yard touchdown back in the day and you'll see TO hustling all the way down the field to block leading the way.

    I have my reasons for not wanting TO, but blocking concerns isn't one of them. I think the Front Office will wait and see how we play without Andre this Sunday before we make any moves. If Jacoby and KW don't show the ability to make plays then I wouldn't be surprised at all to see us look elsewhere. Time to put up or shut up for these guys!

    I would love to see T.O. in Houston. Love or hate him, he is good for the game. And he's getting older and likely realizing if he gets signed this year, it will likely be his last year or two. I would hope he would make the most of it.

    I would love to have a T.O. Texans jersey.

    T.O. is better than anyone on our receiving core except Andre.

    The problem is he would eat Matt Schaub alive.

    Terrell Owens would be a perfect fit for the Texans this year..... If he wasn't coming off of an injury..... and if he wasn't 38 years old...... and if he wasn't Terrell Owens.

    Figure out how to get around those small details and you're in business.

    He and Andre are cousins...do you think that, coupled with his age, might have any impact on his attitude?

    He would.... :thinking: Well except for these facts:

    a) he doesn't know our offense
    b) more than likely, well most definetly he's not in playing shape
    c) he's old which makes b) even tougher
    d) if he was worth a damn anymore, he's already be playing for another team

    Why do people seem to think player "A" can be interchangeable with player and team "B"??


    Que up the Randy Moss threads.

    He isn't going to play anywhere this year. He tore his ACL in April. He is just mouthing off to keep his name relevant so he can make a play for a job next season.

    say what you will about TO's attitude but that dude's always in playing shape. his mind may be the most unprofessional one in league history but the guy's a phenomenal athlete and has proven that by producing well into his late thirties. again not saying Bob should make the signing however if he did TO would still show up faster than half the receiving core. I'm still having nightmares of that end around he had against us when he was in Buffalo.

    Phenomenal physical specimen? YES!! Playing shape? No. Especially as Chris reminds us that he went through surgery this past offseason.

    I disagree with virtually everything in your post.

    Signed,

    The ACL surgery he had 6 months ago.
