There are about three teams involved in the Terrell Owens sweepstakes and they are the Titans, the Raiders and most surprisingly, the Patriots. Now newspapers will usually put up polls and forums that ask the fans their opinion on free agents, but it's rare that the team does so on its own website. Until now....
If T.O. wanted to play for the Patriots, should New England sign him?Nice use of the popcorn reference there, but I'm with the first guy. Sure Owens will more than likely wreck havoc on the Patriots' locker room, but just imagine the AFC's defenses going up against Moss, Owens and Welker. That's like the Cardinals on steroids! As far as New Englanders go, here are the current poll results....
Andy Hart says, "Yes!"
Assuming T.O. doesn’t have a lot of options, which I think is a safe assumption at this point, I hope he comes crawling to Bill Belichick and the Patriots in a last-ditch effort to resurrect his reputation and championship dreams. Let me be clear, if he has options and expects the Patriots to in any way bid for his services then I have no interest.
Erik Scalavino says, "No!"
Yeah, sure, go ahead. Sign T.O. … if what you want is the utter destruction of locker room chemistry and team unity. If on-field discord is what you want to pay to see at Gillette Stadium this fall, then T.O. is the guy for you!
Humble pie? Not for him, thanks. He prefers popcorn.
