WR Terrell Owens wants to play for the New England Patriots who are suddenly thin at wide out.
“Would I be open to it? Considering an organization like the Patriots? Yes,” Owens said. “Knowing Tom [Brady] and understanding the structure of what Bill Belichick, how he runs his ship, I have no problem with that. A lot of people will obviously speculate into what I may bring from a negative standpoint to that organization.”
Owens played for five different teams during his time in the NFL and caused some problems in the locker room for all of the teams he played for and he says he’s different.
“I’m not that same guy I was five, 10 years ago,” he said. “In terms of me understanding the situation that I’m getting myself into, then I would have to govern myself accordingly, understanding there’s going to be a lot of negative things said if that were to be the case.”
He says he can still play.
“Am I capable of playing? Absolutely,” he said.
He said he has no problem working out for the Patriots if they wanted to see if he has anything left.
“I don’t know what their needs would be or their considerations would be by bringing me in, but I definitely think an organization like that, it would be an ideal situation for myself to be part of,” Owens said. “If they want to work me out to see what I can do if I’m catching or running or cutting, I have no problem with that.”
He 100% believes he could help any team right now even though he hasn’t played in five years.
“Do I consider myself in top game shape? No,” said Owens. “But could I come in a help a team? Yes, absolutely. I still know how to play the game enough to be productive,” he continued. “Could I get myself in better shape as the season goes on? Absolutely.”

Owens spent 15 seasons in the NFL, catching 1,078 passes for 15,934 yards and 153 touchdowns.
If he doesn’t play with any team this year, he is eligble to enter into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, along with Pats CB Ty Law.
