Positive sign? Agent says T.O. planning late preseason return

Free-agent wide receiver Terrell Owens probably won't sign with a team until late in the preseason, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said Monday.

Owens tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the spring, but he's on schedule with his rehabilitation, according to Rosenhaus.

Rosenhaus previously said Owens could be physically ready by the start of training camp.

"It's something we might take our time with, later in the preseason," Rosenhaus said on NFL Network.

Owens, a 15-year veteran, is second on the NFL's career list with 15,934 receiving yards. He caught 72 passes for 983 yards and nine touchdowns last season for the Cincinnati Bengals.
