Munchak says Titans would be interested in a healthy Owens

Terrell Owens might have an NFL suitor after all.

Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak said Tuesday that his team probably would consider signing the free-agent wide receiver if Owens is healthy enough to pass a physical.

"That's something that at some point when (Owens') health is better and he can pass a physical -- people thought the midpoint of the season, maybe -- he might be a guy that may be able to work out to prove where he's at," Munchak said on his radio show, according to the Tennessean. "So of course us, or whoever else, is going to take a look, just like we have with other free agents, to see what kind of shape he's in.

"A lot is going to depend for us on how we are producing at that position three weeks or two weeks from now," Munchak said. "All those things will factor into it. But I'm sure whenever you've got a player that has his capabilities, everyone's going to know exactly where he's at. If he has a way of helping our team win, then for sure you're going to take a look at him."

The Titans have been desperate for help at the receiver position since losing star playmaker Kenny Britt for the season with torn knee ligaments in Week 3.

Owens, 37, is recovering from his own knee problems. He had surgery in April to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament, but he recently said he expected to be ready to play soon.

Owens, who played college football at Tennessee-Chattanooga, had 983 receiving yards and nine touchdowns for the Cincinnati Bengals last season.
