Peter King of Sports Illustrated says the Seattle Seahawks are willing to kick the tires on Terrell Owens today because they have concerns about Sidney Rice’s ability to hold up over the long haul in 2012. Further, they hear that Owens is in great shape and has been humbled by what has occurred this past year.
King: He’s 38, he hasn’t played in the league since 2010, he’s apparently blown his football fortune, and today just might be last call at the T.O. Saloon. Seattle’s giving him a look — nothing more, at least for now — because the Seahawks have heard he has been humbled and is in great shape.”
Here’s my story on Sunday’s practice, with head coach Pete Carroll remaining coy on the quarterback competition.
Former NFL player Eric Davis, now an analyst for the NFL Network, does not believe Owens is a good fit in Seattle. Davis: “Pete Carroll works better with young players. He works better in a teaching mode, he works better bringing the guys up the chain. I don’t think T.O. is going to listen to a lot of what he says. I don’t think Pete’s method is going to work with him.”
If you’re trying to figure out what type of mental state T.O is in, take a look at Michael Mooney of Grantland’s profile on Owens while he was still playing for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League.
KJR’s Curtis Crabtree writes that we should receive more clarity in Seattle’s quarterback competition this week.
Clare Farnsworth of Seahawks.com writes that all three quarterbacks had their moments during Sunday’s scrimmage.
Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times writes that Marshawn Lynch looked like his old self on Sunday.
Bill Barnwell of Grantland goes into great detail to explain why he believes the San Francisco 49ers will win nine games or less in 2012.
