Hey JETS!!! I'm available! I'm ready, willing & able! Call my agent @jordanwoy & let's make it happen.- Terrell Owens (@terrellowens) October 8, 2012
Owens' tweet widely was perceived as a desperate act by an unemployed former NFL star. Owens, naturally, disagrees. He sees a Jets team that has Antonio Cromartie lining up at wide receiver. They need his help as much as he needs theirs.
"It's not begging for a job when you know you can still play at a high level, given the opportunity," Owens told TSN on Wednesday. "When you have a defensive back playing offense and running routes, I think that's more desperate than my actual tweet itself."
The Jets signing T.O. would be like setting up two of your single friends who haven't had a date in months, even when you know they won't get along. The intention is good, but an ugly ending is inevitable.
