So now Terrell Owens is a free man once again, having been cut by the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys apparently decided Owens wasn't worth all the drama, even though he's had at least 1,000 yards receiving in each of his 3 seasons there and scored a total of 38 TDs in those 3 years.
Somebody will hire T.O. again, of course. Even though he's 35 years old. If you look at his stats, he's been extremely productive for a long time.
But it shouldn't be Carolina. Carolina already tried a version of T.O. once, with Keyshawn Johnson, and that didn't work out. The role of "Veteran Wide Receiver To Gracefully Play Second Fiddle to Steve Smith" is already nobly played in Charlotte by Muhsin Muhammad.
And while Owens has been more productive than Moose if you look at the past several years, he's just not worth it. What he gives you in TDs he subtracts in team morale. T.O. is evidence that while there is no "I" in "T-E-A-M," there has always been a "me" if you just flip the letters around a little.
He doesn't fit with what the Panthers are trying to do here, and they should stay far away from him.
