The Seahawks wanted to get a veteran wide out to help their WR core heading into 2012, but Sunday was yet another message that older doesn’t necessarily mean better.
Seattle said ‘so long’ Sunday afternoon to 38-year-old Terrell Owens, waiving him in a slew of transactions.
Owens let the cat of the release out of the bag by posting a message on his Twitter account shortly before 11 a.m. that he had been released.
“I’m no longer a Seahawk,” Owens tweeted. “I THANK the organization 4 the opportunity, I’m truly blessed beyond belief. My FAITH is intact & will NOT waiver.”
T.O. inked a one-year deal with Seattle back on August 7th, following a great workout that had coaches and Seahawks staff raving about how good he looked for having not played an NFL game in more than 18 months.
Now, he’s back on the street looking for work.
In a league getting younger, there simply isn’t room for guys like Owens, Chad Johnson and Randy Moss. Both Owens and Johnson have already been let go (Johnson for headbutting his soon to be ex-wife), and it wouldn’t be a stunner to see Moss shown the door before too long.
